On March 29-30, 2017, a "Gulf of Mexico Workshop on International Research (GOM-WIR)" will be held at the Riverside Omni in Houston, TX, to bring together expertise from broad disciplines to develop an international research agenda for the Gulf of Mexico. The workshop is sponsored by the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM), The Harte Research Institute for Gulf of Mexico Studies (HRI), the National Academy of Sciences Gulf Research Program (NASGRP) and the National Oceanographic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). The objective of GOM-WIR is to identify, prioritize and facilitate potential international environmental research between Mexico, Cuba and the USA in the Gulf of Mexico. The facilitated workshop is by invitation only and will bring together up to 150 researchers from the USA, Mexico, and Cuba from academia, resource agencies and the private sector to participate. Go to the workshop web page at http://www.gulfinventory.org/ for more information and to request an invitation.

The workshop will be held in conjunction with the HRI State of the Gulf Summit to be held on March 27-28, 2017; participants are invited to also attend the Summit.
