Ocean Best Practices Workshop VIII

October 14 @ 8:00 am - October 18 @ 5:00 pm

The objective of the eighth Ocean Best Practices System Workshop (OBPS WSVIII) is to facilitate the cross-cutting primary role of best practices in operational oceanography by promoting dialogues across science and technology. In the era of Digital Twins for the Ocean, the need of best practices is fundamental for a more interoperable and reliable use of ocean data, for the evolution of the worldwide observing network from the deep ocean to the coast and for dealing with complex forecasting systems. The ultimate goal for satisfying this need is to provide standards and tools for developing new solutions for marine conservation, for predictions and monitoring, for a sustainable ocean environment, and a sustainable Blue Economy.

The Workshop features two plenaries – the first one is devoted to the evolution of our Ocean knowledge and policy, and the second one addresses workshop recommendations and ​future perspectives. The workshop will be held online, including parallel sessions, keynotes and presentations, organised in two time zones. More information will be progressively shared through this webpage.
