The 2018 Ocean Sciences Meeting (OSM) will take place 11–16 February 2018 in Portland, Oregon. This meeting is co-convened by the American Geophysical Union (AGU), the Association for the Sciences of Limnology and Oceanography (ASLO), and The Oceanography Society (TOS). Session proposals and tutorial abstracts for 2018 OSM are due 3 May 2017, 11:59 P.M. ET. Abstract submissions will open 12 July 2017 and close 6 September 2017.
The Program Committee seeks input from members of the ocean sciences community in designing the scientific program. Proposals are invited for topical sessions and tutorial presentations that span a broad array of marine science topics. We encourage ideas with strong interdisciplinary themes that address new and emerging areas of research.
To view currently submitted sessions/tutorial and to submit a new proposal please go to: http://osm.agu.org/2018/session-proposal-overview/
You will need to select a topic from the list of 27 topical sessions. Please note, you will be prompted to log in or create an account to submit a session proposal or tutorial. The Ocean Sciences Meeting Program Committee reviews all proposals and has the final decision on session approvals.
Session proposals must include an informative title (20-180 characters) and brief description of the session topic (limit 200 words). The proposal must identify a primary Chair, to serve as the point of contact, and at least one additional co-Chair. There is a limit of four Chairs for each session. All Session Chairs listed on session proposals must consent to being named as part of the proposal at the time of submission. Session Chairs will receive their session acceptance or rejection notification in early July.
For a complete list of session submission standards please refer to the guide on this site: https://osm.agu.org/2018/session-proposal-overview/topical-sessions/
Please contact the AGU program committee members if you have questions about submitting a session proposal. AGU representatives on the OSM program committee are AGU co-chair, Fred Bingham, vice chair, Marjorie Friedrichs and student representative, Miram Gleiber.
