#1 Post by arango » Mon Feb 16, 2009 7:05 pm

2009 ROMS/TOMS Asia-Pacific Workshop
Sydney Institute of Marine Science (SIMS), Sydney, Australia, March 30-April 3, 2009

The registration deadline has passed. Remember that the deadline for abstracts is February 27, 2009. We will be very strict with this date because it leaves us little time to formulate the agenda and make the programs so please don't leave it for the last minute. You can submit your abstract :arrow: here (you will be asked to log in).

We would like to gauge interest in the planned tutorials that will be offered on Monday and Friday. Monday's session will be a training/tutorial for ROMS beginners. It will be held at a University of New South Wales computer lab. Details and directions will be available soon. This session is intended for people with little experience with ROMS who are interested in learning the basics of downloading, configuring and running the model for a simple application. A working knowledge of computing in a UNIX environment will be assumed.

On Friday we will be holding 2 sessions concurrently. Both tutorial presentations will be at the SIMS Meeting Venue. One session will be a tutorial on how to use the Community Sediment Transport Model (CSTM) within ROMS. This is intended for users with some familiarity with ROMS, or with sediment transport modeling. The other session will be an overview of the Fasham ecosystem model in ROMS. This is intended for users with some familiarity with ROMS, or ecosystem modeling.

We would like all workshop attendees to indicate their interest in the above tutorials by visiting :arrow: this page (you will be asked to log in).

Don't forget that immediately after the workshop on Wednesday evening, we are planning to have a reception dinner aboard a cruise ship that will take us on a harbor tour. More details on the reception will be posted soon. On Thursday we plan to end the workshop after lunch so you will have the rest of the day free to explore Sydney. Available activities near the workshop venue include: :arrow: scuba diving, a visit to the world famous :arrow: Tronga zoo, hiking, surf lessons at Manly beach, or a visit to the :arrow: Oceanworld aquarium also at Manly.

There is a lot of information on the :arrow: workshop webpage and new information is posted there often so please check back regularly.

Looking forward to seeing you in Sydney,

Organizing Committee,
