Thank you for your interest in applying to be a member of the Ocean Optics XXV Planning Committee. Please complete the survey by November 30, 2018. The Ocean Optics Conference XXV Conference will take place in October 2020 in Norfolk, Virginia, USA. The planning committee is comprised of community members who support the event through selecting plenary speakers, inviting exhibitors and sponsors, and suggesting short courses, town halls and other events. Additional responsibilities include reviewing, ranking and scheduling abstracts submitted for oral presentation, reading extended abstracts submitted by students and selecting the Best Student Paper Award, and chairing one session during the conference. Community members who completed their final degree in 2016 or earlier are welcome to apply.
