A special journal issue presenting GOV community papers is planned for publication in the Journal of Operational Oceanography (JOO) in 2014.

Symposium poster sessions: Please note: Due to the high number of submissions, poster sessions at the symposium will be organised in two consecutive parts during the 3-day event, matching the posters with the resective symposium presentations. Organisation details will be provided closer to the event. To view full abstracts please click on the session links below.

Poster Awards

One of the core events of the GOV Symposium – the poster exhibition – allowed the to share variety of work which is going on in the community. The poster exhibition offered a platform to view and discuss achievements, ideas and developments with symposium attendees face-to-face.

To acknowledge the contribution and the efforts of the poster presenters, eight outstanding posters were awared with the GOV Symposium Poster Award. The poster evaluation committee selected the eight posters during the all three days of the symposium. The winners of the poster award were announced in the afternoon plenary session of the last day of the event and handed over the certificates.

The winners are

Poster measurements

The poster size should be A0 size and portrait format.  This means the measurements are:

33.1’ (841 mm) wide and 46.8’ (1189 mm) high. Poster boards will hold 2 posters per side (4 posters in all).
