Since the Third International Workshop on the Scientific Use of Submarine Cables was held in Tokyo, Japan, in 2003, significant progress has been made in this field. Several new scientific cabled observatories have been constructed, and plans to reuse retired optical submarine telecommunication cables have been advanced. The ongoing evolution of the Internet, computers and optical networking technology continues to present new opportunities to develop novel submarine cable networks with new architectures for scientific use. This is leading to new ways of doing ocean science that are changing, and will continue to change, our understanding of ocean processes. It also offers unprecedented opportunities for education and outreach that can improve public understanding of the ocean sciences.The Fourth Workshop will provide a forum for the exchange of information between managers, scientists and engineers working in the earth and ocean sciences and underwater technology. The latest scientific results using submarine cables and new technologies to enable versatile submarine cable networks will be included among the topics, and should be of interest to all participants. It is timely that this meeting will take place in Europe at the outset of the EC push for cooperative initiatives in Seabed Observatory Networks. Accordingly, new initiatives at the regional and local level will also be included as a topic along with stakeholder and management issues.
