Welcome to PACON 2017

PACON is a networking organization founded in 1983. It has held 24 international conferences, the 25th PACON is scheduled for March 27-302017 in Zhou Shan, China. PACON is focused on Marine Science and Technology.

The reason for our focus is straightforward. The oceans cover 71% of the planet. Their role in energy production and climate change over the next hundred years will shape our planet¨s future. Important policies will have to be crafted to deal with all sorts of food, energy and minerals production issues. The efficacy of these policies will heavily rest on the advent of technological developments. In the last century much technological development originated in the US. Now, many of the new technologies and their implementation are coming from Asia. As the issues are difficult and convoluted, it is very important to address them from a wide viewpoint involving technologists, scientists, engineers, industrialists and policy makers from a broad range of countries. PACON was founded to do just this. It is designed as a network and as a forum to show leadership. It is oriented to a wide range of marine issues taken from a variety of points of view from the major countries surrounding the Pacific Basin.
In terms of membership, PACON International is comprised about equally of marine scientists, engineers, industrialists, and policy-makers dedicated to sharing state-of-the-art marine science and technology and the appropriate applications of this technology.
Our principle goal is to provide leadership to all participating nations to promote the environmentally sound utilization of ocean resources and to advance knowledge in the various disciplines. The organization provides an international forum for international exchanging of information, ideas and technology.

Our mission is linking science and technology across the Pacific through innovation and education. The principal technology transfer and educational tool we use is the Pacific Congress on Marine Science and Technology held every two years and now planning for its 25th gala meeting in Zhou Shan, China in April 2017. The conference provides focused key-note speeches by influential leaders on selected topics of broad concern. The structure of the meeting provides ample time for discussion with these groundbreaking leaders as well as more technical talks to fill in the meat of the subject.

PACON is unique in its breadth of subject interest and national participation. We encourage all to join PACON and participate in our network and conferences. As your president I assure you it will be an effort that will be richly rewarded both for yourself and our precious ocean environment.

Welcome to PACON2017, ZhouShan, China!

Sincerely,
