When conferences like these occur in the Great Lakes it’s a terrific opportunity to engage and drive conversation s around freshwater issues. The MTS call for speakers has suggestions for topics, but the Great Lakes data sharing community is full of stories and information. Submit your subject and share your experience with your peers. The Speaker Program is organized in focused topical sessions consisting of 20-minute power-point presentations followed by a question and answer panel discussion.

GLOS is looking forward to a productive few days, stop by our exhibitor’s table to tell us how you use the data portal or other data sets in your work. We’re looking for your feedback.
