To all who submitted abstracts:
Thank you for the 90 abstracts received for ASW3. Given this overwhelming response, we were unable to accommodate all those who requested a talk, and so some were asked to present posters instead. The schedule will include a generous amount of time for poster inspection as we realize this will be an important part of the workshop. Please look in the spreadsheet of accepted abstracts below to see if your abstract was accepted as a talk or as a poster. The schedule is also available to see when your talk occurs.
As a reminder, we request that all presentations, both oral and poster, assign some time or space to critique how well Argo served the purpose of your research. Feedback on the array design and density, sampling interval, drifting depth, sampling depth, etc. is greatly appreciated.

Instructions for Poster Presenters:
- Currently the space available for the posters is 1 metre wide by 0.9 metres high. This may increase, please check back.
- Please plan on putting up your poster on the evening of Tuesday 24 March. If that is not possible, please put up your poster in the morning on Wednesday 25 March.
- If you wish to print your poster in Hangzhou, please contact LIU Renqing (email@example.com) for more details.
- After studying the schedule, please decide on a time when you or your co-author will be standing by your poster to answer questions. Please write this time on a piece of paper attached to your poster board.
Instructions for Oral Presenters:
- Timing is very tight, so please practice your talk beforehand and stay within the time limits (25 minutes for invited talks and 15 minutes for contributed talks). This will leave 5 minutes for questions at the end of each presentation.
- Please use the assignment code in column F of the spreadsheet posted above to name your PowerPoint file. For example, Howard Freeland's presentation will be called wed-am-04.ppt.
- Instructions on how and where to upload the presentations will be posted later.
- Heat and salt budgets on global to regional scales
- Seasonal to inter-annual variability as seen by Argo
- The role of Argo in constraining Ocean Data Assimilation fields
- Estimation of circulation fields on global to regional scales
- New technology - this might include changes to the operation abilities of a float,
the addition of new sensors and other topics that might arise
Requirements for abstract submission:
We invite abstract submissions for oral or poster presentations on any topic and any region of the
oceans provided that substantial use is made of Argo data. Please note that the purpose of the
meeting is to assess the general utility of the Argo array and its future direction and so we
encourage presenters to spend a little time commenting on how well the project worked and, if
possible, mention what changes to the design of Argo might have improved the research.
Indicate your preference for an oral presentation or a poster. As the number of oral slots
is limited, the Science Program Committee will select oral presentations from those who
indicate that preference. As there will likely not be enough time for all who wish to give talks,
the remaining will be asked to present posters.
Please submit electronically, a one-page abstract in Microsoft Word or text format by email to
firstname.lastname@example.org. Indicate the session topic to which you would like to
submit the abstract and your preference for a talk or a poster. The deadline for abstract submission
was 19 December 2008. We will accept late abstracts through January 2nd. When submitting an abstract, please follow the guidelines for length and format
used for PICES meetings as demonstrated on the template.
For questions about abstracts, email email@example.com.
Authors of accepted presentations will be notified via email.
