The OCEANS 2005 MTS/IEEE Conference will take place in Washington, D.C. September 19-23, 2005.
"One Ocean" emphasizes the vital need for global cooperation and engagement to protect our internationally connected waters, as well as the critical role that the "One Ocean" plays in global commerce, weather, jobs, food supply, recreation, national defense, and mineral and energy resources. "One Ocean" reinforces the many interrelationships among the scientific and engineering disciplines, and this conference provides an unequal led opportunity to network with colleagues from across the entire spectrum of oceanic and marine interests.
With nearly 100 Areas of Interest at the conference, this will be a unique opportunity to interact with colleagues in all ocean disciplines.
Sponsor Opportunities: We have arranged many opportunities to showcase the ?ocean community? throughout our society.
Education and Outreach: As an important conference element, ocean education, literacy, and outreach will be highlighted throughout the entire program.
