Since 2003, Joji Ishizaka (Nagasaki University, presently Nagoya University, Japan) and Yu-Hwan Ahn (Korea Ocean Research and Development Institute, presently Korea Institute of Ocean Science and Technology, Korea) started an annual workshop on ocean color called as the Korea-Japan Workshop on Ocean Color (KJWOC), which has been held either in Japan or Korea, and attended mostly by Japanese and Korean ocean color community. Later, the community has agreed and decided to hold the Asian Workshop on Ocean Color (AWOC) once in several years of KJWOC series. By also inviting scientists and students from other Asian/Southeast Asian countries, the AWOC is held to promote the application of ocean color remote sensing technology especially in the Asian/Southeast Asian regions by initiating and/or establishing bilateral/international research collaborations. The first AWOC in 2011, which was also the 8th series of KJWOC, was held in Hokkaido University, Japan. The 2nd AWOC 2013, was held in National Cheng Kung University, Taiwan. The 3rd AWOC 2015 or the 12th KJWOC was held at the Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC) in Yokohama. The following 4th, 5th and 6th AWOC were held in Thailand (Burapha University), Korea (Pusan National University) and Japan (JAMSTEC) from 2016 to 2018, respectively. This year, Faculty of Science, Burapha University will host the Ocean Color Workshop again in Chonburi Thailand during December 11 – 14, 2019 which was the 7th AWOC or the 16th KJWOC.
