Conference: MTS/IEEE Oceans 15 Washington

October 19, 2015 - October 22, 2015 Washington DC, Gaylord Center

OCEANS '15 MTS/IEEE Washington DC will be held at the Gaylord National Resort and Convention Center on National Harbour, USA, from 19-22 October 2015.

The conference theme is Sea Change: Dive into Opportunity.

Topics with Special Local Interest
In addition to the Core Topics common to all OCEANS conferences, the Local Organizing Committee (LOC) has selected five topics with special local interest, as well as broad international significance. These topics were chosen by the LOC in keeping with the conference theme, Sea Change: Dive into Opportunity.
They are:

  • Emerging Arctic Challenges: Rapid changes in Arctic conditions are impacting Defense, Energy, and Transportation sectors, creating a need for new science and technology applications. OCEANS ’15 will bring together strategic, scientific, and technical considerations to address this pressing challenge.
  • Marine Resiliency: Changing climate and ocean conditions are impacting the coastal and ocean environment. The mid-Atlantic region is still recovering from Sandy, and is one of the highest risk regions from sea level rise. OCEANS ’15 will address advances in marine and coastal resource protection, hazard forecasting and mitigation, and other aspects of resiliency.
  • Environmental Intelligence: The ability to make critical decisions - tactical, management, economic, or scientific – in the marine environment requires accurate observations and forecasts. OCEANS ‘15 will address observations, sensors, platforms, forecast models, and data management and delivery systems necessary to support marine enterprises.
  • Offshore Wind and Marine Renewable Energy: The growth of Offshore Wind and Marine Renewable Energy development, globally and in the Mid-Atlantic Region, has created opportunities for supporting science, technology, and engineering. OCEANS ’15 will highlight the present and future states of these energy sectors, from policy to technology.
  • Law of the Sea: The United Nations Convention on Law of the Sea has relevance to energy, research, exploration, defense, and fisheries. The OCEANS ‘15 meeting in Washington, D.C. provides a forum for discussion of UNCLOS in the context of the science and technology that support the impacted sectors.
