The 2024 AAUS Diving for Science Symposium will be hosted by the Smithsonian Marine Station at Fort Pierce with major contributions by Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute, 14-20 April 2024 in Fort Pierce, Florida. Registration is now open! The week will be filled with instructional workshops such as Serious Accident Investigation, both topside and underwater; technical workshops including technician certifications, wilderness first aid, DAN IQC, managing divers with acoustics; diving workshops investigating octopi, near shore benthic survey methods, snorkeling best practices and much more. Following the workshop opportunities and social/networking events, we will wrap up the week with the national DSO meeting, science symposium and annual awards banquet, featuring our Keynote Speaker.
We welcome diving scientists, students, diving safety officers and anyone with an interest in diving science to participate in this event.

Call for Abstracts and Posters
The abstract submission process will be a bit different than previous years and we are still working on the guidelines. Also offered will be a poster session where we will be encouraging ALL programs participating in the symposium to submit a poster about their Scientific Diving program’s activities. More information and templates coming soon.
