Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Welcome to Dalian and BIT’s 1st Annual World Congress of Ocean-2012 (WCO-2012), the world’s leading conference in ocean science, engineering, technology and management. Under our theme ‘New Wave of World Marine Economy ’ a particularly rich technical program will leave you struggling to decide which concurrent session to attend.
This ocean conference will seek the views and creative ideas of the international community in addressing ocean and coastal resource management issues in China. The sessions will present the most recent advances in the fields of Ocean. Presentations and plenary sessions will cover a broad spectrum of ocean and coastal issues that are of interest to a multi-disciplinary and international audience, with particular interest in policy development. These presentations will identify or offer solutions to problems, utilize case studies, identify knowledge gaps or collaboration opportunities, and discuss broader applications and implications of material presented.
We invite you to join us for this forward-thinking event in Dalian. This conference will include plenary sessions, panels, and paper presentations. Poster sessions, workshops, exhibits and social gatherings will also help foster a fruitful exchange of information and ideas.
Please plan to join us this September. You don’t want to miss this important event!
