To help the Steering Committee with planning, we are asking folks to take a short (less than 2 minutes) survey on anticipated attendance and/or participation at the 2016 Western Groundfish Conference February 8-12, 2016 in Newport, OR.
We understand that budgets and schedules are uncertain this far out, and that plans may change. We are just trying to gauge possible participation, to aid in planning.
The survey will be available through July 31, 2015.

Attention presenters! If you agree to have your talk posted on this website, please email us at email@example.com with confirmation. If you do not want your talk posted, no response is necessary as we will not post any talks without explicit permission.
You may also want a different version of you talk posted. If that is the case please feel free to email the version you would like posted.
Thanks to all for a successful conference,

The program schedule has been finalized! You can get it via this link or on the Program page.
The draft agenda for the Visual Surveys Planning Meeting is now available on the Program page.
A Wi-Fi network will be available in the presentation hall and surrounding areas (as far as the signal will travel). The Wi-Fi network name will be WGC2014 and the password will be WGC_2014 (the password is case-sensitive).
Once you are connected to the network, a computer named WGCFILESERVER will appear in your Windows Explorer (and hopefully whatever the Mac equivalent is). If you open the WGCFILESERVER computer via the Windows Explorer you will see a number of shared folders, each one named after one of the presenters in the format Lastname_Firstname.
During registration you will be provided with a username and password that will allow you to connect to the shared folder named after you. Only you and the WGC admin staff will have access to your folder; it will not be accessible to any of the other presenters. To connect to your folder, just double-click on it and enter your username and password. You can also map a drive letter to it if you wish. In addition to your personal shared folder, you and all presenters will have read/write permissions on a folder called “public”.
