OceansOnline is a full add-on day to IMCC5 registration with a theme of Making Marine Science Matter through communication and online resources. Through hands-on training workshops for beginners and discussion panels aimed at experts, we will discuss how internet tools can help marine scientists and conservation professionals with research, education and outreach. Inspired by the former ScienceOnline Oceans meeting, OceansOnline aims to cultivate the ways marine science is conducted, shared and communicated online. We will bring together a diverse group of hundreds of scientists and conservation professionals, as well as science writers, artists, programmers and educators from around the world, representing universities, organizations, governmental agencies and companies.
OceansOnline will build on the online ocean community and facilitate new collaborations. IMCC5 provides a means to exchange hard-won knowledge and experiences, develop new ideas and bravely overcome challenges, and OceansOnline will further this mission. OceansOnline will also help build on strategic opportunities, such as marketing, meeting potential partners, generating new ideas and gathering knowledge valuable in current and future endeavors.
Information on OceansOnline plenary speakers will be released as soon as it is available.
