Zhejiang Ocean University, Zhoushan, China
On 28-31 October 2019 the Zhejiang Ocean University (ZJOU) in Zhoushan will host the First Global Conference on Ocean Fronts and Eddies. The Conference will cover all aspects of marine science, technology, and applications relevant to most diverse fronts and eddies of any scale and physical nature. Presentations on observational, theoretical, modeling, and laboratory studies are equally welcome.
The Conference’s format features a few novelties:
Every speaker will have an opportunity to also present a poster.
All posters will be printed at the ZJOU at no charge.
Every 90-min. session will be followed by a 30-min. poster session.
Every participant could post a PDF paper on the Conference Web site.
Conference duration: 4 full days of 15-min. plenary talks (12 min. talk, followed by a 3 min. Q&A, followed by a poster session during coffee break). Every day starts at 9 am and ends at 6 pm, leaving plenty of time for interaction with colleagues and exploration of the island’s night life and cuisine.
