The 2016 conference theme, One Gulf: healthy ecosystems, healthy communities, will focus on opportunities to promote and sustain a healthy Gulf environment, communities, and economy, including new discoveries, innovations, technologies, and policies.

Advance technology developments for improved research, observation, and operations in the Gulf.
Apply data management and informatics in the context of Gulf of Mexico ecosystem science and oil spill response, restoration and policy.
