Dear Ocean Optics Colleague; Welcome to the 20th installment of the Ocean Optics Conference. From the inception, the Ocean Optics Conference series has attracted a diverse audience of professionals and students addressing virtually every facet of optical oceanography including basic research, technological development, environmental management, and policy. Over the course of the 41 year history of the series, the conference has increased in scope and attendance and has become spiced with topics of local interest as the venues have become more varied and representative of the international oceanographic community. In this tradition, Ocean Optics XX will convene in Anchorage, Alaska in 2010, 27 September - 1 October, and is expected to attract a diverse international audience and focus on many science issues of interest within the research community.
Sessions will generally be topical, derived from the submitted abstracts, and will be comprised of invited overview lectures and contributed papers. All contributed papers will be presented as posters and a subset will be selected by the planning committee for oral presentation.
Another tradition of the Ocean Optics Conference series is the construction and distribution of conference proceedings. Each contributed paper will be submitted as an extended abstract and the collected works distributed to all conference attendees in the form of a word-searchable CD ROM. The cost of the proceedings is included in the registration fee.
Finally, if there is a centerpiece of the conference, it is the banquet where attendees experience fine local cuisine and entertainment, are presented with an interesting and thought-provoking dinner talk, and participate in the Jerlov and Best Student Paper awards ceremonies.
On behalf of the planning committee, I encourage you to attend Ocean Optics XX and look forward to seeing you in Alaska!
Heidi Dierssen
Chairperson, Ocean Optics XX Planning Committee
