The Ocean Sciences Meeting Program Committee seeks input from members of the Ocean Sciences community in designing the scientific program for the 2024 Ocean Sciences Meeting. Proposals are invited for topical sessions and town halls that span a broad array of aquatic science topics. We particularly encourage ideas with strong interdisciplinary themes that address new and emerging areas of research.
