Welcome to the CMOS 57th Congress

MAY 28 – June 1, 2023 · SHERATON HOTEL · ST. JOHN’S, NL

CMOS 57th Congress

The Canadian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (CMOS) 57th Congress will be held in a hybrid format with opportunities for both in‑person and virtual participation. We are also pleased to partner with the Oceans Research in Canada Alliance (ORCA), who will be holding their National Meeting at the same location from June 1 – 2, 2023.

The theme of the Congress is “Connecting on the Rock: From the Marine Environment to the Blue Economy”, recognizing that this is the first time in several years that the CMOS community will meet face‑to‑face. This is also the first time we will embrace a new hybrid format for the Congress and invite both virtual and in‑person participation. We hope that this Congress will remind us of the connection we share with each other and the connection between science and society, particularly with respect to a better understanding of extreme events and fostering a Blue Economy.

The CMOS Congress and ORCA National Meeting will overlap on June 1st, and will see a variety of ORCA content woven directly into the CMOS program that day. To gain access to ORCA content on June 1-2, CMOS Congress attendees should also register (for free) for the ORCA 2023 National Meeting. Please visit the ORCA website for more information.

The congress will feature:

Plenary presentations, workshops and panel discussions with leading researchers

Science sessions that highlight top Canadian and international research contributions across a breadth of interests, as well as sessions that highlight the translation of science into services that benefit society

Access to ORCA 2023 content on June 1-2, including presentations and interactive workshops highlighting opportunities for collaborative ocean science in Canada - additional registration (free) through ORCA website required

A public lecture with a focus on extreme events, and emergency preparedness and response

A high level of interaction of presenters with those attending the sessions for both oral and poster papers, as formal questions and answers, more general discussions, and opportunities for one-on-one and small group discussions
