It will feature the Living Ocean and Coast with EXPO 12 (http://www.worldexpo2012.com/), and attendees will have the opportunity to see some of the most pristine wetlands in the world, a good model for the US to reclaim and manage our wet lands.

    OCEANS '12 MTS/IEEE Hampton Roads, VA, Oct. 14-19, 2012 - Abstract Submissions Open

    OCEANS 2012’s theme, Harnessing the Power of the Ocean, has as its foundation a conceptual National Ocean Enterprise and its seven societal benefits as identified by the National Ocean Partnership Program’s legislation in 1999, followed by President’s Bush’s Ocean Action Plan and President Obama’s Ocean Science Policy. The seven societal benefits are:

    Improving predictions of climate change and weather, their effects on coastal communities and the nation
    Improving the safety and efficiency of marine operations
    Mitigating the effects of natural hazards
    Improving national and homeland security
    Reducing public health risks
    Protecting and restoring healthy coastal marine ecosystems
    Enabling the sustained use of marine resources
    New due dates! Abstracts are due by 18 May, 2012, final submission of papers is 31 Aug., 2012. Details at http://www.oceans12mtsieeehamptonroads.org/index.cfm

    USA Pavilion - University of Virginia Student Ambassador Program

    The USA Pavilion at Expo 2012 will present an interactive, exciting and educational story that highlights America’s relationship with the Expo theme of the “Living Ocean and Coast.” Featuring the themes of Diversity, Wonder and Solutions, the USA Pavilion will share the voices and hopes of the American people with our friends and partners in South Korea and around the globe. The 12,000-square foot exhibition space will house exhibits and programming that represent the unique and diverse nature of America’s ocean and coastal environments and communities. College undergraduate and graduate students will be part of this once in a lifetime experience through the Student Ambassador Program, a partnership between the USA Pavilion and the University of Virginia. This program recruits and trains volunteer students to serve as guides and national representatives for the United States at Expo 2012 in Yeosu, South Korea.
