Global OCEANS 2020: Singapore – U.S. Gulf Coast

The enduring COVID-19 pandemic does not allow the Marine Technology Society and the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society, co-sponsors of OCEANS 2020 Singapore and OCEANS 2020 Gulf Coast, to hold these conferences as planned with all their regional distinctiveness by their respective organizing committees.

Safety of the participants being paramount, the organizing committees have decided to combine forces and invite worldwide community participation to a single virtual conference “Global OCEANS 2020: Singapore – U.S. Gulf Coast”, which will feature a mix of live and on-demand events available to all registrants at a very affordable rate, October 5-30, 2020.

Further details of this first-ever virtual OCEANS conference will be posted in the coming weeks on the conference website and on the Societies’ social media channels.
