The 7th EGO Conference

Monday 26th September – Thursday 29th September 2016

National Oceanography Centre, Southampton 

The 7th EGO conference will provide a forum in which scientists, engineers, students and industry can exchange knowledge and experiences on the development of glider technology, the application of gliders in oceanographic research and the role of gliders in ocean observing systems.

We invite oral and poster presentations on any aspect of underwater glider technology and its application in marine science.   The final program will be based upon the abstracts received but we anticipate the following themes:

•       New developments in glider and sensor technology

•       The role of gliders in Ocean Observing Systems

•       Observing biogeochemical processes with autonomous vehicles

•       Micro-scale to meso-scale physical processes observed with underwater gliders

•       Gliders in polar oceans: science and technological challenges

•       Sampling strategies for single vehicles and networks

•       Glider operations: piloting, infrastructure, data management and legal issues

The 7th EGO conference will be held at the National Oceanography Centre (NOC) in Southampton, UK. The NOC now hosts the largest and most diverse research fleet of marine autonomous systems in Europe in purpose built facilities including the new Marine Robotics Innovation Centre, where marine businesses work alongside NOC’s scientists and engineers.

Information about the EGO glider network can be found at  at http://www.ego-network.org.
