GLIN==> Updated Agenda for GLOS Industry Day - November 15th, Chicago



Great Lakes Observing System Industry Day Agenda Attached

The Great Lakes Observing System (GLOS) will be hosting an Industry Day
workshop on November 15th at the Gleacher Center in Chicago, Illinois. As
the Great Lakes regional component of the national Integrated Ocean
Observing System (IOOS), GLOS will be leading efforts to coordinate and
intensify observation and monitoring  across the basin and the production of
informational tools to deliver this information to users rapidly, accurately
and dynamically. The GLOS Industry Day workshop is intended to inform both
private and public-sector entities of innovative ways for their institutions
to become involved in GLOS system design, development, and the creation of
information-rich Great Lakes products. 

An updated Industry Day agenda is available at
www.glos.us/industry/GLOS_IndustryDay_Flyer3.pdf .

Panel presentations will focus on the status of observing systems at the
national and Great Lakes levels, opportunities for industry involvement in
GLOS, implications for the region's economy, and identification of GLOS user
needs in a range of areas, including transportation and commerce, municipal
water management, tourism, recreation and many others.

Registration for the GLOS Industry Day is provided free-of-charge. Lunch is
being sponsored by the Great Lakes Chapter of the Alliance for Coastal
Technologies (ACT). Register online at
