  • Review of successful examples of academic use of preexisting industry marine seismic data.
  • Discussion of strategies for developing joint industry-academic acquisition of new data, which are consistent with commercial and academic imperatives and data restrictions.
  • Discussion of a revised model for research vessel Langseth operations.
Travel and subsistence support is available for selected participants.To apply, contact the convenor at Include a paragraph detailing your pertinent background and the value that you will bring to the workshop. Deadline: 1 September, 2013.
