Dear Colleagues:

The DISCO XXIV and PODS VIII meetings will be held in Hawai’i on October 5-9, 2014. These symposia provide recent graduates, or soon to graduate PhD-level oceanographers in the fields of chemical oceanography (DISCO) and physical oceanography (PODS) with an opportunity to present their dissertation research in front of their professional peers and to forge professional relationships that will facilitate their future research and academic careers.

Applications are being accepted from individuals who received their PhD after June 30, 2013 or will complete their degree before July 1, 2015. Participation is by invitation only, with participants’ travel and on-site expenses supported by the meeting sponsors. The deadline to apply is April 21, 2014. These meetings are sponsored by NSF (DISCO & PODS), ONR (PODS), and NOAA (DISCO), and coordinated by the University of Hawaii Conference & Event Services.

Please see the meeting websites for more information (www.soest.hawaii.edu/disco and www.soest.hawaii.edu/pods). For any questions not answered there, please email us at disco@soest.hawaii.edu or pods@soest.hawaii.edu. We would appreciate it if you could circulate this announcement amongst your colleagues and students.
