IOSC Announcement


It is with great excitement that we announce the availability of the 2014 IOSC Online Proceedings. As many of you know, several years ago IOSC undertook a project to move the entire text of the IOSC Proceedings, since the inception in 1969, into an electronic format which is now available online to anyone for free. Each article and poster in the collection has its own electronic identity and can be cited and searched for through online databases. The 2014 edition represents the first time we have engineered the online Proceedings into the fabric of the conference from the beginning of the planning process.

This is a great step forward for the conference and it is a benefit to everyone who has ever published with IOSC and everyone who is doing research in this area. The complete compendium of work that the ISOC Proceedings represents is beyond impressive, it is a central and exhaustive source for all the work that has been done over the past 45 years in our field of study. As our community goes forward tackling new challenges, it is crucial that we build upon the large body of work already existing about oil spill response, prevention and restoration science, policy, techniques and technology. The IOSC Proceedings is a good first stop for anyone trying to learn what has gone before.

Thank you to the thousands of conference supporters for their enthusiasm and interest. The IOSCís success and progressive initiatives like our online Proceedings could not have been possible without the hard work and focus from our countless volunteers and contracted help. But most importantly thank you to all of you who have published in the IOSC Proceedings, it is your work that improves our profession through your willingness to share your knowledge with everyone.

In addition to viewing the online proceedings please make sure to check out our recap video of the 2014 International Oil Spill Conference (IOSC)! This video captures a series of interviews with participants talking about the value, importance and evolution of the IOSC over the years. It also highlights the advancements in oil spill technology, the spill response community that it supports, and IOSCís global reach and impact. That video can be viewed here.
