 Ocean Tapas: Small Bites of Big OA Issues (COMPASS)
This fast-paced discussion among leading journalists and scientists on the latest findings, thorniest challenges, and social relevance of ocean acidification science will highlight hot topics and jump start conversations about communicating your science at the OAPI meeting and beyond. Join us for this fun event and the chance to meet and mingle with the journalists at the no-host reception to follow.

Lunch

Lunch workshop: Delivering a Clear Message (COMPASS).
In this 1.5-hour workshop during the OAPI meeting, you will learn how to talk about your science - and why it matters - in clear, lively terms. We’ll help you replace unnecessary details with an accurate message that will resonate with your audience and leave them wanting more. Your takeaway will be the beginnings of a 30-second elevator speech that you can use anytime and anywhere.

Breakouts and discussions

The meeting will rely heavily on discussion and feedback from the OA research community. Day 2 and parts of Day 3 will be dedicated to parallel breakout sessions, in which small groups of attendees will consider issues relevant to all subdisciplines. The ten breakouts include: 
1. Characterizing the system: Observing, measuring, perturbing 
2. Linking measurements to processes 
3. Technical developments needed: equipment, networks, tools 
4. Methodological developments needed: Experimental procedures 
5. Uncertainty: measuring, modeling, conveying 
6. OA as one of many issues 
7. Designing large multidisciplinary research efforts 
8. Other theories to inform OA studies 
9. Organizational needs & decisionmaking 
10. Gamechangers & black swans: what would accelerate or harm OA research?
