Technical Program & Topics

OCEANS conference is jointly sponsored by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE/OES) and the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and is one of the most influential international conference in this field, where you can discover all the new technologies and dedicated research linked to the comprehension of oceans. OCEANS 2019 Marseille will be a fantastic place for information sharing and networking, with an Exhibition, several tutorials on special interest topics, hundreds of technical presentations and a student poster program.
