Ocean Society of India

The Ocean Society of India (OSI) has a mission to provide a forum for sharing individuals, research institutions, and industrial organizations to share their knowledge and experience in ocean science, technology, engineering and allied fields of the ocean. OSI has life members all over the country. The Society conducts its day-to-day activity through a Governing Council (GC).

OSI invites the ocean community to join the only Professional Society comprised of scientists, engineers and technologists from academic institutions, research laboratories, scientific organizations, industries, and anyone engaged in any ocean-related activity or profession.


Since 2009, OSI started organizing biennial conferences viz. OSICON-09; OSICON-11, OSICON-13, OSICON-15, OSICON-17, OSICON-19, OSICON-21. These conferences hosted by leading academic/research institutes viz. Andhra University, Visakhapatnam; NIOT, Chennai; IITM, Pune; NIO, Goa; NCESS, Thiruvananthapuram; CMLRE, Kochi and NCPOR, Goa, were very successful in bringing together students and professionals working in the area of ocean sciences, technology and allied fields to share their knowledge.

OSICON-23 is hosted by the Indian National Centre for Ocean Information Services (INCOIS), Hyderabad, an autonomous institute under the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India. OSI is pleased to invite the community to the next biennial conference, OSICON-23, the Eighth National Conference scheduled to be held during 23-25 August 2023.

INCOIS has been providing ocean information, warnings, advisories and ocean state forecasts to various stake holders through sustained ocean observations, oceanographic and marine meteorological data management, ocean modeling and cutting-edge oceanographic research.
