    10th ONR/MTS Buoy Workshop, March 4-6, 2014 - call for speakers

    The March 2014 Buoy Workshop will be held in the beautiful city of San Diego, California, in a quiet area of the Town and Country Resort and Convention Center, not its large center complex. The Workshop starts with an evening Icebreaker on Monday, March 3; the workshop begins on Tuesday, March 4 and ends on Thursday, March 6 around noon. A buoy oriented site tour is planned.

    Please direct inquiries and abstracts to Judy Rizoli at jrizoli@whoi.edu or 508-289-2456.

    OES needs your help designing a new logo

    After 45 years, it is time to move on a newer Logo for the Society. The requirements are:

    The logo must still display the "wave" pattern The main color must be blue (with a normalized code) The name "Oceanic Engineering Society" must be spelled out IEEE must be mentioned

    The winner will be selected by an ad hoc committee. Submit artwork to Jim Gant (jmgant7@gmail.com), OES Newsletter Editor by December 1, 2013. The winner will be awarded an iPad.

    OES needs your help composing a new motto

    The society needs a motto which will reflect its fields of interest. The Society Constitution defines those as: "The Field of Interest of the Society includes all aspects of science, engineering, and technology that address research, development, and operations pertaining to all bodies of water. This includes the creation of new capabilities and technologies from concept design through prototypes, testing, and operational systems to sense, explore, understand, develop, use, and responsibly manage natural resources."

    A motto is defined as a phrase meant to formally summarize the general motivation or intention of a social group or organization. Usually it is in Latin, but I will spare you this one. The motto must be short. For instance the city of Paris motto is :"Fluctuat nec mergitur", which means "Floats but does not sink".

    The winner will be selected by an ad hoc committee. Submit your best motto to Jim Gant (jmgant7@gmail.com), OES Newsletter Editor by December 1, 2013. The winner will be awarded an iPad.
