Hello, everyone!

This October, the University of Miami will host ScienceOnline Oceans, a
conference focusing on how marine scientists and conservationists can use
the internet for collaboration, education, and outreach.

The program http://oceans.scienceonline.com/program/  includes topics such
-How to use social media and blogs for public outreach and broader impacts,
-How to use smartphone apps for field research,
-Distance learning,
-Creating online databases and data visualization,
-Creating short films about your research,
-Media training,
-and more!

 The conference will include a panel discussion and social event at the
Miami Science Museum, and there are several optional pre-meeting workshops
and post-meeting field trips. While examples focusing on the marine
sciences, the techniques are broadly applicable to other fields.

Registration is now open, and takes place online here:
