The American Academy of Underwater Sciences and the European Scientific Diving Panel are pleased to announce the 2013 Curaçao Joint International Scientific Diving Symposium, October 23-27, 2013. We welcome diving scientists, students and diving safety officers to participate in this unique event and connect with colleagues from Europe, Central and South America and the United States. The AAUS has previously convened successful joint symposia in 1985 at Scripps Institution of Oceanography with the Scientific Committee of the Confédération Mondiale d’Activités Subaquatiques, and in 1998 at Simon Fraser University with the Canadian Association for Underwater Science.

 Science is a global endeavor. This symposium is interdisciplinary in nature and international in scope allowing for exchange of information on new scientific findings, methods and techniques of underwater research, and diving safety. The venue in Curaçao allows for a compelling program that maximizes utilization of the facilities and setting of the Santa Barbara Golf and Beach Resort to their fullest. In addition to the scientific program an in-water diving safety officer workshop is planned, along with several half-days of Curaçao reef diving led by coral reef experts, CURASUB deep reef submersible dives, an evening event at the Curaçao Seaquarium and a number of social events that allow for interaction with international colleagues. A post-symposium field trip to Bonaire has also been organized.

Major symposium support has been generously provided by
