As in 1996 the response to the initial announcement of the 1998 Buoy Workshop has been very encouraging. The following Final Program for the Workshop covers a broad spectrum of oceanographic buoy technology. A total of 26 presentations are currently scheduled for the two-day event. Together with panel discussions after each group of talks they will comprise a full program, intended to stimulate a thorough exchange and provide up-to-date information on the status of this highly specialized technology. A special session will address the impact of advanced two-way telemetry on technology and mission of buoy systems. We will have the benefit of a significant foreign participation, with researchers from Canada, India, Norway and Taiwan sharing their experience with the audience. Presenters and members of the audience are encouraged to voice both achievements and difficulties encountered to create the in depth exchange so valuable in the workshop environment.

This year’s Buoy Workshop will for the second time follow the MTS Underwater Cable and Connector Workshop, which is held in the same hotel two days earlier. The two successive workshops will bring buoy and cable specialists together, a rare opportunity to learn from two related highly specialized areas of engineering technology. A significant number of persons registered at both workshops. Persons who are not current members of the Marine Technology Society will become members for one year through the registration fee payment, a reduced fee is charged for current members of the Marine Technology Society.

It is a great pleasure to welcome you to this year’s ONR/MTS Buoy Workshop, and we hope that you will spend two lively and stimulating days presenting talks, following the discussions, and meeting the people working in the challenging specialized technology of oceanographic buoys.
