SOCIB present at IMDIS 2018

SOCIB has participated in the International Conference on Marine Data and Information Systems (IMDIS) held in Barcelona, 5-7 November 2018. 

The IMDIS cycle of conferences aims to provide an overview of the existing information systems to serve different users in ocean science. It also shows the progresses on development of efficient infrastructures for managing large and diverse data sets, standards, interoperable information systems, services and tools for education. The conference was organized by CSIC (Consejo Superior de Investigaciones Científicas, Spain), jointly with IFREMEROGS and IOC/IODE, in the frame of the SeaDataCloud project (EU H2020 - Grant Agreement 730960).

Presentations from SOCIB included the new API for data access, the App Android SocorristaIB and the IBISAR service. Moreover, SOCIB has actively contributed to different areas of Quality Management System, Ocean Best Practices de la IODE and the European HF radar node.

The conference brought together 187 participants from 34 countries. Amongst the 26 participants from Spain, 20% were from SOCIB (List of presentations and posters)

The International Scientific Committee has reviewed all submitted abstracts. The basis for acceptance of abstracts was the relevance to the conference topics and scientific quality. The IMDIS 2018 proceedings have been published by OGS in Bollettino di Geofisica, Vol.59 - Supplement, 2018, 366 pages.
