Hawaii Ocean Observing System

When: May 20 2008 (All day) until May 21 2008 (All day)
Where: Imin Center (5/20) and UH POST Building (5/21)

The purpose of the Stakeholders Workshop on May 20 and the
All-Hands Governance Meeting on May 21 is to bring together all interested
stakeholders of the Hawaii Ocean Observing System (federal, state, and
county agencies, NGO's, industry, and academia) to begin robust discussion
regarding the development and expansion of the observing system.  Of
particular interest are the topics of participation in regional governance,
mechanisms for product development, data resources currently available, and
priorities for further system augmentation and expansion.
 This is the first such meeting of this group and has the intent of
formalizing priorities for the upcoming fiscal year and
catalyzing stakeholder participation and partnership development.

This workshop and meeting are co-sponsored by the University of Hawaii's
School of Ocean
and Earth Science Technology (SOEST) and the NOAA: IDEA
Center at the East-West Center.

Mr. Eric Wong, Data Management Specialist in EWC's Research Program, and
Chris Ostrander, PacIOOS Regional Coordinator – Hawaiian
Islands, will be the coordinators.
