"It's great to be in Hawaii," Mike Sigler, a marine biologist for NOAA Alaska said. "It has also been great fun for our project because we had so many different kinds of scientists working on this project."

The six-day convention will address important marine science issues through workshops, student events, plenary sessions, panel discussions and special keynote addresses from various individuals. Approximately 5,000 people are expected to attend.

"It's a really fantastic opportunity for me to be able to actually meet the people who are actually on this cruise, to interact with some of the PI's, and to learn a little bit more about the research there," Anna Szymanski, student at the University of Alaska Fairbanks said.
