Have you conducted innovative research for the marine field that you'd like to present to a broad audience? If so, now's your chance! OCEANS 2018 Charleston, to be held October 22 - 25 in Charleston, SC, is accepting technical abstracts that align with the conference theme, "Healthy Oceans, Resilient Coasts, Robust Commerce... Strong Nations," and/or the local or standard technical topics.

Authors are invited to submit abstracts through April 18 in one of four categories:

  1. Regular Technical Program (this includes both OCEANS 2018 Charleston topics and standard OCEANS topics): if abstract is chosen, authors will then submit a full paper which they’ll present as part of the technical program. Following the conference, the paper will be published in IEEE Xplore.
  2. Student Poster Competition*: if abstract is chosen, students will then submit a full paper and poster which they’ll present during the conference in the student poster section of the exhibit hall. Following the conference, the paper will then be published in IEEE Xplore.
    *This competition is open to any full-time student in an accredited program. Student must be listed as the lead and corresponding author. Selected applicants, based on abstract reviews, will have travel and registration expenses subsidized.
  3. NEW THIS YEAR! - General Student Poster Session**: if abstract is chosen, students will then submit a poster which they'll present during the conference in the General Student Poster Session. Following the conference, the poster will not be published in IEEE Xplore.
