Welcome to The 2022 Ocean Sciences Meeting Application Site

Ocean Sciences Meeting 2022 invites submissions for Scientific Sessions, Innovative Sessions, Town Halls and other Auxiliary Events

Abstract and Town Hall/Event submission has closed. Thank you to all participants!

Pilina means connection, relationship, and association and is an important value in Hawaiian culture that encourages inclusivity and collaborations to achieve results that cannot be accomplished with one person alone. The 2022 OSM focuses on the importance of strong pilina for the ocean science community. By coming together, we can forge a path toward a sustainable future.

This year’s theme emphasizes the importance of working together. “Come Together and Connect,” focuses on strengthening the ocean sciences community through discussing both basic and applied research while making scientific and social connections. We are creating a meeting and networking environment that provides opportunities for ocean scientists, from those doing basic research to those working on solutions for the ocean we want, to present and share knowledge as well as network and address emerging topics in ocean sciences.

Town Halls, Workshops and More

Let your voice be heard! Town Halls provide a valuable opportunity for government agencies, academic programs, special projects, and other focused interest groups to gather input from the broader marine sciences community that gathers at the Ocean Sciences Meeting. Town Halls are one hour in length and open to all meeting participants.

Or are you looking to hold a workshop, committee meeting, small group meeting, or social event during the Ocean Sciences Meeting? Submit an event request by 29 September and we will review your request and available meeting space.
