• OCEANS'17 MTS/IEEE Aberdeen Final Reminder Abstract submissions due 16 January 2017
    Dear MTS/IEEE OES colleagues,

    We are writing to you in our capacity as Technical Program Chairpeople for the MTS/IEEE OCEANS'17 Conference, to be held in Aberdeen, Scotland, UK, 19-22 June 2017.

    OCEANS'17 will be a tremendous opportunity to focus on topics of interest to you in all fields of Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering. We are developing a Technical Program that we hope will appeal to the most significant areas of interest. The conference will feature:

    Over 400 professionally reviewed technical papers, including sessions focused on local themes.
    Plenary sessions with leaders from industry, academia, the military and government.
    Exhibitors showcasing the latest innovations in products and services.
    A student poster session featuring outstanding projects from around the world.
    Tutorials, workshops, demonstrations, government listening sessions, social/networking opportunities, professional field trips ...and much, much more!

    Abstract submissions are open until 16 January 2017:

    Abstracts may be submitted in one or both of the following categories:

    Regular Technical Program: Abstract submitted for review, technical paper presentation in technical or poster session at the conference, and publication in IEEE Xplore.
    Student Poster Competition: Abstract, paper, poster presentation, and publications in IEEE Xplore. Open to any full-time student in an accredited program. Selected applicants, based on abstract reviews, will have travel and registration expenses fully reimbursed.

    Abstract submissions will close in December and we will continue developing the full technical program over the coming months. We hope you are planning to attend the conference, and we hope you will submit a paper of interest to the MTS/IEEE OES community.

    The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) for OCEANS' 17 MTS/IEEE Aberdeen has selected seven topics with both special local interest and broad international significance. Those topics were chosen in line with the conference theme, A Vision for Sustaining Our Marine Futures. In addition, the OCEANS'17 has standard conference topics and all may be seen here:

    On behalf of the entire Local Organizing Committee we look forward to welcoming you to make this a successful and memorable event. See you in June 2017!
