John Delaney, Professor of Oceanography and Jerome M. Paros Endowed Chair in Sensor Networks at the University of Washington, is the latest speaker to join our panel of keynotes at CARIS 2012.
Delaney, who joined the University of Washington faculty in 1977, has published nearly 100 scientific papers and articles, and has served as chief scientist on more than 45 oceanographic research cruises, many of which have included Deep Submergence Vehicles and Remotely Operated Vehicles. In September 2005, he co-led the VISIONS'05 research expedition, which successfully broadcast the first-ever live, high-definition video from the seafloor across the world. Scientists, educators, and the general public, viewed the real-time broadcasts from the underwater volcanoes of the NE Pacific over cable and satellite television and on the web.
He is a passionate and tenacious advocate for launching next-generation ocean science and educational capabilities. You can hear more from John Delaney on TED Talks.
We are excited and looking forward to hearing him speak at CARIS 2012. For more information about CARIS 2012 and to register visit www.caris.com/caris2012/.
