Organizing a Manta Ray Symposium, Oceanography-2013 Conference
November 24, 2013
The International Conference on Oceanography was held during August 21-23, 2013 at Holiday Inn Orlando International Airport, Orlando-Florida, USA. The Oceanography-2013 was a remarkable event which brought together a unique and International mix of Oceanography & Marine science Researchers, leading universities and research institutions making the conference a perfect platform to share experience, foster collaboration across industry, academia, and evaluate emerging technologies across the globe.
Our principal investigator, Dr. Csilla Ari was asked to organize a Manta Ray Symposium which was a great success and attracted lots of interest. Manta rays were listed in CITES Appendix-II recently! This symposium gave a great opportunity to bring together Scientists, Foundations and Industries to discuss ideas on how to continue research after this great accomplishment. We heard some very interesting talks and collaborations were established between different countries and organizations. 25 countries were represented on the conference giving a broad overview on the advancements in ocean science and marine research.
