MMI in the Marine Metadata Community

Throughout its history, MMI has been very active in the Marine Science and Information Technology Community. MMI Members routinely attend conferences, prepare presentations and posters for meetings, and represent the collective experience of MMI. The presentations, posters and documents that follow represent our community activities!

Wonder where we'll be next? Check out the Events Page for a list of possible conferences and workshops that we'll be attending!
