The theme for the 2016 meeting is: Ocean Sciences at the Interface. Complex interactions occur at a variety of interfaces and on a wide range of spatial and temporal scales. These interactions are critical for understanding the world around us and implementing informed policies in a global society. The 2016 Ocean Science Meeting will highlight processes at interfaces and how the work at such interfaces advances the study of ocean sciences and shapes the impact of our research on society.

Note: Attendees of tutorial sessions do not need to sign up in advance. Attendees do have to be registered for the meeting in order to participate in these sessions, but there is no additional fee for attending the tutorial sessions.


Tutorial Submission Guidelines

The Tutorials submission site is now closed. Tutorial Abstract submissions opened 15 July 2015 and closed 23 September 2015.

Selected tutorial talks have been grouped into dedicated concurrent sessions by the Program Committee. These talks should be designed to have a broad appeal to participants seeking an overview of a given topic. Tutorial sessions will contain four 30-minute time slots, each consisting of a 25-minute presentation with time for questions and for changeover of speakers. Each tutorial proposal will be one of these 25-minute presentations. Meaning, if you submitted a tutorial for proposal, that will be one of four if accepted into a tutorial session.

Acceptance notifications for tutorial talks will be distributed in early July 2015. Accepted tutorial speakers will also be allowed to submit an abstract for topical sessions. There will be no submission fee charged for tutorial abstracts.
