OCEANS '77 Conference Set For October 17-18-19
Sessions on a variety of technological, educational and public policy topics will highlight the OCEANS '77 Conference, set for October 17-18-19 in Los Angeles, Calif. This annual meeting and exposition is jointly sponsored by the Marine Technology Society and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers.
Dr. Simon Ramo of TRW, chairman of OCEANS '77, and his advisory board and conference committee are working to make OCEANS '77 an interesting and informative week for an estimated 2,000 attendees.
In addition to a busy calendar of conference sessions, with speakers like the Honorable Elliot L.
Richardson and the Honorable H.S. Amerasinghe, OCEANS '77 will offer attendees a chance to see more than 100 exhibits from organizations involved in fields such as undersea drilling and instrumentation, remote imaging of the oceans and a variety of oceanrelated equipment and technology.
The conference will be held at the Bonaventure, Los Angeles' newest fine hotel, which features excellent exhibit facilities.
The conference theme is "An International Conference to discuss and explore developing technology and its impact on public policy and education with a focus on the Pacific Rim." In some 40 sessions, more than 200 papers will be presented in fulfilling the conference objective of bringing together a strong interdisciplinary program.
Conference objectives include presentation of an outstanding technical program; provision of forums for discussion of oceanoriented public policy and education issues; provision of opportunities for interdisciplinary exchanges on topical issues, in Plenary Sessions; attraction of top-level participation from the legal, academic, government, commercial and scientific fields, and presentation of an exhibit reflecting the latest advances in ocean technology.
Invocation by the United States and other nations of a 200-mile limit manifests the new priorities given ocean resources here and abroad. In recent times, fishery rights, offshore resources, coastal development, marine pollution and shipping hazards have escalated to national and international issues.
Questions are raised about the proper use of technology in the sea, and of the responsibilities of policy-makers in regulating the deployment of technology.
