OCEANS ´09 IEEE, Balancing technology with future needs

In May 2009 the international OCEANS '09 conference and exhibition will be held in Bremen, Germany. The world’s leading conference and exhibition in ocean science, engineering, technology and management is organised for more than 30 years by the Ocean Engineering Society of the IEEE, the world's largest engineers’ association.

OCEANS '09 addresses scientists, engineers and representatives from authorities and companies, which are active in marine research and technological development. The main topics cover new methods and technologies in ocean exploration.

A number of lectures, organised as special topic sessions, will provide an overview of the latest technological and scientific approaches in ocean research, including recent issues on basic research , and utilisation of natural resources. This is supplemented by an international marine technology exhibition, where leading companies present their products and services in the Bremen Congress and Exhibition Centre.

The technical programme will be complemented by a variety of professional tutorials: Expert presentations partly accompanied by practical exercises offer the opportunity to gain deeper insight into specific technologies and applications.

Furthermore, part of the program will address the future generation of scientists and engineers: highschool students, undergraduates and Ph.D. students from universities. Also during one of the OCEANS '09 Workshops a forum will be given to discuss the future impact of climatic changes on mankind.
