GomCon Scheduled for April 14
Mark your calendars for The Gulf of Mexico Conference (GoMCon) “preview” on April 14th, 2021.
GoMCon combines the annual Gulf of Mexico Alliance (GOMA) All Hands Meeting, the annual Gulf of Mexico Oil Spill and Ecosystems Science (GoMOSES) Conference, and the triannual State of the Gulf Summit. The virtual GoMCon preview emphasizes the intersection of scientific research and the management of Gulf Coast human and natural systems, the focus of the 2022 in-person conference.
The 3-hour virtual preview includes a keynote speaker and panels designed to present:
- Where we are: the status of Gulf coastal and ocean research and restoration.
- Where we are going: what science and research is needed to inform Gulf restoration and management.
- How to get there: the funding needed to achieve necessary Gulf science and research.
The preview is an introduction to the main event, the in-person conference in 2022. It is a great way to make sure researchers, coastal resource managers and interested stakeholders have an opportunity to collaborate on managing this precious natural resource called the Gulf of Mexico.
The event is free. For more information and to register, visit the GoMCon website at https://gomcon2021.dryfta.com.
