Convening of the first conference of the International OTEC/DOWA Association (IOA) in March 1994 in Brighton, Utilized Kingdom, in conjunction with Oceanology International 94 (OI '94) was announced in the previous issue of this Newsletter.
This event is significant for both IOA and OI '94.

For Oceanology International, the meeting in 1994 marks its 25th Anniversary and a look forward to the next 25 years of ocean science and technology.
Papers solicited for the IOA Conference may cover any aspect of R & D activities in the field of OTEC and DOWA. Overview papers from Europe, Japan, Taiwan R.O. C. and the United States will be invited.
