 admin     |      2021-04-01 12:22



Through the provision of annual training courses, workshops and joint research opportunities, the ODC center has witnessed increasingly active exchanges, steadily expanded cooperation areas, and deepened international friendship among participants in the past ten years. It has been instrumental in developing an early career professional network with the attendance of 395 trainees from 43 countries.


In the context of global epidemic in the past two years, there has been an increasing demand for enhancing interregional exchanges among them. Therefore, the ODC center will  establish the young marine scientists' community to further strengthen regional exchange and coordination, and respond to the call of the Decade Actions for sustainable development of ocean science. The community will convene the ODC International Forum for Young Marine Scientists from 2021 on a regular basis and various exchange activities.


The first forum in 2021 will focus on the Advanced Tools Used in the Research of Ocean and Climate. Three young scholars, also participants in the previous training, will give invited speeches to share their recent progress. Here is the list of their topics:


          Oceanic Data Visualization Works with Python Language
          Qilong Wang, FIO, MNR

          Prediction of Droughts in Ethiopia using ANN

          Getachew Mehabie Mulualem, Bahir Dar University, Ethiopia

          Static and Dynamic Visualization of Oceanography Data with R
          Freddy López, CIIFEN, Ecuador


           15 April 2021 (Thursday14:00-17:00 CST (GMT+8)

             Tencent Meeting 


The forum welcomes the participation of previous ODC trainees and is open to anyone who wants to join the network or develop collaborations.

We will appreciate it if you could extend the notice to your colleagues and friends who may be interested.


If you are willing to share your research progress or achievements on this platform, you are highly welcomed to join us.
