Eastern Pacific Ocean Conference Mailing List

EPOC is an annual conference that focuses on ocean research conducted in the Eastern Pacific (broadly defined).  The meetings are convened for two-and-a-half days in the early fall, include oral and poster presentations on themes that vary from year to year based on community interest (and always include a "general topics" session), and provide an excellent forum for hearing about new work, developing collaborations, while engaging professionally and socially with colleagues. Students are especially welcome!

Interested in joining the EPOC mailing list?
