Dear Workshop Participants:

The 2004 Buoy Workshop at the University of Florida was a lively event at a great facility. About 100 persons participated and listened to more than 35 presentations (a new record) and enjoyed two site tours and a number of displays from companies that provide buoy related hardware and sensors. Beautiful “balmy” spring weather allowed outdoor lunches, a real treat for the many attendees from colder climates at the end of the winter.

The large number of presentations resulted in a fast paced program, the speakers deserve our special appreciation for the experience and thoughts, which they shared at the Workshop by which they provided a true exchange. The financial support from the Office of Navy Research provided some funding for the Workshop preparation which is gratefully acknowledged. Rick Cole from the University of South Florida deserves special thanks for thorough and careful local support of the Workshop, where else would you find two of the USF buoys positioned at the entrance to the meeting site, just to add a touch.

The Speaker Program is following, there still are CD’s available which contain the presentation material and the attendees list for those who like to get more information.
