General information

Interoperability technologies for sharing ocean instruments and real-time data 2018

In this workshop, participants will engage with the community to further demonstrate, in the field, new interoperability tools that have been developed and field-tested for ocean sensor and real-time data sharing. These software and firmware tools have been implemented on different platforms and sensors. They are available open-source and now require substantially less engineering time than in the past. The training will also help those interested in participating in an interoperability experiment in the field, with the Atlantic Ocean as a region of interest and deployment, in the framework of AtlantOS. The workshop and training will take place during the Oceanology International 2018 conference to facilitate industry participation. The workshop is open to ocean scientists, engineers and technicians dealing with in-situ sensor and observing systems, from academia or industry. These participants will benefit from direct experience with the latest interoperability technologies.
