2n User Consultation Meeting

Location : National Maritime College of Ireland, Cork, Ireland
Dates : From 05/10/2011 to 06/10/2011

The second GlobWave User Meeting was hosted at the National Maritime College of Ireland (NMCI) in Cork on the 5 & 6th October 2011. The event began on the morning of the 5th and concluded at lunchtime on the 6th.

The goal of the meeting was to allow participants to explain how the GlobWave data is being used through a series of lectures and posters, and for the project team to outline the latest developments.

In addition to the wide-ranging and interesting talks, the meeting included a tour of the NMCI facilities (including a Marine Simulator and Wave Tank) and a free evening networking event with dinner and drinks.

The Programme Committee also selected a number of abstracts for travel support.

The meeting agenda and presentation are presented here.
