OCEANS 78 To Feature Public Policy Issues
Discussions and debates on five critical oceans issues will be featured at OCEANS 78, fourth annual combined conference sponsored by the Marine Technology Society and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers.
The conference will be held September 6-8, 1978 at the Sheraton- Park Hotel, Washington, D.C.
The Public Policy Program is an innovation sparked by Richard A. Frank, chairman of the conference and Administrator of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce. Added to what has heretofore been primarily a technical conference, the to 3-hour discussions will focus on actual and potential policy in the United States. They will run concurrently with the technical sessions.
The five policy subjects are: outer continental shelf oil and gas; coastal zone management and ocean use; fisheries policy; ocean mining; and oceans research and development.
Format for the policy sessions will consist of speakers presenting differing viewpoints, followed by a panel discussion and questions or arguments from the audience.
The t e c h n i c a l s e s s i o n s that make up the largest part of the conference will this year include financing ocean development, deepsea mining, development of ocean energy and related environmental issues, ocean pollution, underwater v e h i c l e s and work systems, and state-of-the-art instruments and hardware.
Approximately 150 papers will be presented from scientists and engineers at universities, laboratories and p r i v a t e industry throughout North America and from abroad.
An introductory panel presentation will open OCEANS 78 to discuss benefits and problems associated with Government-industry cooperation in ocean development.
Cooperative ventures, regulatory activity, and governmental assistance will be discussed.
The Public Policy Program is being arranged by Heather L.
Ross, Assistant Secretary f o r Policy, Budget and Administration of the U.S. Department of the Interior. The Technical Program is being arranged by Anthony I.
Eller of the Naval Research Laboratory.
Participating organizations in OCEANS 78 include the American Association for the Advancement of Science, American Institute of Aeronautics and Astronautics, American Oceanic Organization, A m e r i c a n S o c i e t y of Mechanical Engineers, American Society of Naval Engineers, National Association of Corrosion Engineers, Sea Grant Association, and The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.
