Jakarta, Indonesia. For three days (24th – 26th November 2015), at least 60 researchers from 11 countries gathered in Jakarta to joining International Implementation Plan Workshop Years of The Maritime Continent (YMC). This workshop is the second international workshop in Indonesia after the first workshop was held in Singapore.
“The main goal of this workshop is to review the progress we made since our last workshop that happens in Singapore, which is was taken place in January this year. At that workshop our main purpose was to draft a science plan for YMC. Now we have a science plan. So at this workshop our purpose is to build upon our science plan and discuss the implementation of YMC, so after this workshop we hope to start develop YMC implementation plan” said Dr. Chidong Zhang, Representative from University of Miami.
