The OCEANS conference is the flagship event of the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES) and the Marine Technology Society (MTS). It features all aspects of oceanic engineering, science and technology. The conference runs twice a year: every autumn (fall) in North America and every spring in the rest of the world. The rest of the world meetings alternate between Europe (in odd years) and Asia/Pacific rim (in even years).
The prestigious OCEANS series of conferences are recognized as the premier forum for the international marine community to meet and discuss topical issues in a format of easy information exchange. OCEANS brings together engineers, scientists, managers and policy makers from all aspects of the oceanic spectrum.
OCEANS features an associated trade exhibition with companies and institutions representing the wide range of activities found in the marine community.
Every edition brings together more participants and represents each topics of the field.
