  • Dr. Michael Crosby: Senior Vice President of Mote Marine Laboratory
  • Dr. Dan Ling Tang: Chinese Academy of Sciences South China Sea Institute of Oceanology
  • Dr. Wei-Hsien Wang: National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium


PACON invited interested parties to apply for organizing one or more focal sessions to be convened as part of PACON 2010. The proposed sessions addressed some facet of the overarching conference theme of international partnerships in marine science and technology as vehicles for improving Pacific Rim relations and resource management.

Sessions and presentations included comments on the value of partnerships being discussed. PACON 2010 served as an outstanding opportunity to not only highlight ongoing or recently completed international partnership projects, but also to meet colleagues from other Pacific Rim institutions that were interested in discussing potentials for new collaborative projects in the areas of:

  • Research/Monitoring
  • Technology Development
  • Resource Management
  • Engineering
  • Policy-Making
  • Education/Outreach
