OP ’24 Symposium planning meetings

The second OceanPredict (OP) Symposium will be held at IOC HQ in Paris from 18-22 Nov 2024. It is planned as a four-day event (Monday to Thursday), allowing for some OP internal business to take place on the last day of that week.

The overarching theme of OP’24 will be “Advancing ocean prediction science for societal benefit”. It invites ocean and atmospheric scientists, observation specialists, industry representatives, service providers and users of ocean data & products from across the international operational oceanography community to engage in science sessions, exhibitions and discussions to explore and define the direction of operational oceanography. Especially welcome are representatives from the service provider and end-user community, to exhibit their work and products, and to engage with the science community. Also very much encouraged to attend are early career scientists, students and representatives from emerging economies.
