The Gulf of Mexico Conference (GoMCon) “Preview” @ Online Event
Apr 14 all-day

Please 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 we call the Gulf of Mexico.

The event is free. For more information and to register, please visit the GoMCon website at https://gomcon2021.dryfta.com.

State of the Coast 2021 @ Virtual Event
Jun 2 – Jun 4 all-day

The State of the Coast (SOC) conference is the largest statewide conference of its kind, providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment, and economy. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, The Water Institute of the Gulf, the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana (CPRA) and Louisiana Sea Grant have partnered to produce this forum, the need for which grows with every acre of land lost to the Gulf.

SOC2021 will consist of virtual presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities. More than 1,200 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, and interested citizens attended the fifth iteration of this biennial conference in 2018.
