This conference began as a response to a recommendation by the Long Island Sound Assembly that there should be a venue where all of the current science relating to Long Island Sound could be presented. The first Long Island Sound Research Conference occurred in 1992. Historically, the conference was organized by the Long Island Sound Foundation until this year, when Sue McNamara retired. The idea was to gather scientists and students from all of the relevant disciplines together, to present and synthesize a big picture of Long Island Sound science. Financial support came via the Sea Grant programs of Connecticut and New York. Proceedings volumes were produced, and are still available from Sea Grant, on loan from the National Sea Grant Library or in digital form at the Foundation’s website. Organization of the conference is now shared by the Sea Grant programs of Connecticut and New York. Support for the Long Island Sound Research Conference is provided by the Long Island Sound Study.
