19th Ocean Optics Conference

Il Ciocco Hotel, Tuscany, Italy

6 - 10 October 2008


The Ocean Optics Conference series has attracted a diverse audience of professionals and students addressing virtually every facet of optical oceanography including basic research, technological development, environmental management, and policy. Over the course of the 40 year history of the series, the conference has increased in scope and attendance and has become spiced with topics of local interest as the venues have become more varied and representative of the international oceanographic community.

Sessions will generally be topical, derived from the submitted abstracts, and will be comprised of invited overview lectures and contributed papers. All contributed papers will be presented as posters and a subset will be selected by the planning committee for oral presentation.
