Call for Hosting Virtual Satellite Events on Digital Twins of the Ocean

In parallel to the Main London event International Digital Twins of the Ocean Summit (4-5 May 2022, London, UK), led by the Digital Twins of the Ocean Programme (DITTO) of the UN Ocean Decade, a call for hosting virtual satellite events on digital twins of the ocean alongside the Summit is now open. Each individual event is expected to have the objective to support the engagement and advancement of actions in the broad area of Digital Twins of the Ocean. The specific formats of the events can range from short informal meetings to many hours-long hackathons, from local consultations, poster sessions to regional or global workshops, with invited speaker or simple open discussion fora. They can be in English or other languages. The only requirement for the satellite events is that they are open for interested participants to join, and are creative. Ideally, the satellite events are expected to happen a few days before the Summit. This is not a hard constraint but a target time period. The events which happen up to two weeks before and one week after the Summit can also be listed.

Please register your virtual satellite event here. The steering group will briefly review the registered events in a meeting every two weeks, just to ensure that the topic of the event is related to the digital twins of the ocean and the event is open for others to participate. There is no final deadline to register an event.

Several information hours will be organized for the DITTO satellite events in March and April. More information for the satellite events can be found in the flyer and website.
