SAVE THE DATE!
This October, OCEANS '12 Hampton Roads brings together technology, people, and ideas that will help to expand our understanding of the earth's largest natural resource. The conference, jointly sponsored by the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Oceanic Engineering Society of IEEE (IEEE/OES), is well-recognized as the international forum for ocean engineers and marine technology professionals.
Because of its proximity to naval bases and federal agencies, the conference will involve a number of federal agency partners, including the U.S. Coast Guard, the U.S. Navy, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the National Aeronautics and Space Agency (NASA), the National Science Foundation (NSF), and the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM).
Old Dominion University, as the host university for OCEANS '12, encourages colleges and universities to exhibit their oceans-related capabilities, and to sponsor their students and faculty to attend. In addition, college students will present their winning entries during the Student Poster Competition.
The conference includes the following topics of local interest: National Ocean Enterprise, Marine Renewable Energy, Sea Level Rise/Coastal Inundation, Integrated Ocean Observing, and Marine Vehicle Autonomy. Some of the 10 core technical tracks include: Underwater Acoustics, Offshore Structures/Technology, Marine Optics/Imaging, Remote Sensing, Marine Law/Policy/Management/Education and Data Visualization/Modeling.
