A Blast from the Past! . . . Student Poster Competitions

Bob Wernli – Beacon Co-Editor-in-Chief and Photographer Stan Chamberlain

A major effort in OES is to ensure that we have an excellent Student Poster Competition (SPC) at each OCEANS conference. Why? To expose these students to our society, the technologies that we address and introduce them to networking with other professionals. Does it work? It certainly does. As an example, AdCom member and our Technology Committee Coordinator, Shyam Madhusudhana, is shown in the below photo as he participated in the OCEANS 2010 Bremen conference SPC.
