Registration opens for the 2019 UK Glider Community Workshop

Registration is now open for the 2019 UK Glider Community Workshop, hosted at the NOC in Southampton on 14–15 November.

The workshop will take place on Friday 15 November, and will be preceded by a networking reception and dinner on the evening of Thursday 14 November at The Dancing Man Brewery. The event will provide an opportunity for the UK research community to come together to discuss the latest technology developments and scientific discoveries related to ocean gliders.

The UK glider community has been at the forefront of utilising ocean gliders for global marine research, and there is a growing user community across UK research centres and universities which is extending the use of these robotic platforms to meet a broadening spectrum of scientific research objectives. The event will also enable new adopters to gain access to experienced users to share knowledge and to help build new partnerships and collaborations.

The UK Glider Community Workshop will follow on from the Marine Autonomy & Technology Showcase (12–14 November) which will feature complementary presentations from technology development groups and the marine robotics industry.
