Ifremer and IRCN organised a workshop on "Rogue waves", Wed. 29th and Thu. 30th November 2000, 
during SeaTechWeek 2000, Le Quartz, Brest, France.

TO THE ROGUE WAVES 2004 WORKSHOP

Aim

To assess the state of the art as to conditions of occurrence of waves or groups of waves of unexpected severity, responsible for ship wrecks and damages to offshore oil and gas production systems; and to establish a ``road map'' as to research actions and collaborations needed to improve the prediction and forecasting abilities in this domain.

The workshop is intended to foster exchanges and discussions between all participants, and the organisers have tried to keep sufficient time available for numerous discussions in addition to the invited presentations.


Format

2-hour sessions, roughly 3 (or 4) 20-25 min. general presentations by experts in each, and 50 min. for walk-ons and discussion.

Printed abstracts of the presentations, and of those walk-on slides already available, to be distributed at the start of the workshop. Bound proceedings to be published early 2001. Instructions to contributors can be found HERE.

The last session will be devoted to a wrap-up discussion on a number of selected topics.
