The Mile High MACNA in Denver this year is shaping up to be very rich on content as evidenced by a prodigious list of speaker presentations. MACNA has just released the final lineup of speakers which not only will include top academics in the fields related to marine sciences, but will also include a whole lot of presentations from international speakers.
Furthermore, now that the schedule of speakers and events is available, you can start planning the big MACNA weekend around which speakers you’d like to see and learn about them before the big show. Now that MACNA has rounded up the speaker talks, the committee is in high gear rounding out a suite of workshop presentations which will also be added to the schedule and announced in a future update.
