Plenary Sessions

Mon, Tue and Wed mornings

The symposium plenary session are an important guide for the whole event. These sessions highlight the core aspects of GODAE OceanView to lead the audience through the value-chain of operational oceanography, from observations, and analysis & forecasting data and products to their applications and uses for society. Plenary talks are presented by highly distinguished speakers representing a large breadth of expertise.

All plenary talks will take place in morning sessions (Mon – Wed), followed by associated splinter sessions in the afternoon.

All plenary and splinter session are open to all attendees. Please check the programme in detail to identify the sessions and talks relevant for you.
