Following the meeting (19 May 2017) training will be offered on the Copernicus marine data stream, as well as training on SeaDAS (updates and future directions).

The programme for the IOCS-2017 meeting will include invited keynote lectures, agency presentations, nine breakout workshops, community discussions and a large emphasis on poster presentations.

After registering, participants can submit an abstract for a poster. There will be three scientific poster sessions to allow participants to interact with colleagues and present their research. Abstract submission deadline is 1 April 2017.

Accommodation: Lisbon is a very popular destination so early booking of accomodation is strongly encouraged.
