OCEANS 2024 Local Organizing Committee Welcomes You

Dear OCEANS professionals,

It is with excitement that we welcome you to join us in Nova Scotia, Canada for OCEANS 2024 Halifax, September 23-26, 2024! This week promises to be the ocean technology event of the year – a must-attend experience with something for everyone.

Our theme – Aligning Diverse Communities for Tomorrow’s Ocean – reflects the increased breadth and depth of participation we expect as the ocean science, engineering, and technology communities continue to grow and expand.

The conference program at OCEANS 2024 Halifax will feature compelling speakers, a suite of technical sessions, panels, and special events on emerging topics such as sensing and automation in offshore wind energy, commercial shipping, carbon removal, aquaculture, and others. Co-located onsite will be several complementary science, policy, and entrepreneurship conferences, workshops, and meetings in the beautiful new Halifax Convention Centre, bringing even more people, action, and interaction to your visit to Halifax. Halifax is a blue economy hub in North America, known for warmth and hospitality. You can expect to feel at home while we meet colleagues old and new.

In addition to all the appeal of a historic and modern port city like Halifax, of course the main ingredient that makes OCEANS fantastic is you! Come, meet your colleagues, expand your network, share latest advances, and build new productive partnerships.

We welcome you to join us this September 23-26 for OCEANS 2024 Halifax!
