MTS TechSurge Conference: Florida Estuary and Coastal Monitoring – Looking Ahead to 2030
April 1 - April 2
Join the Marine Technology Society and partners the Indian River Lagoon National Estuary Program and Florida Atlantic University’s Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute for a 2-day TechSurge that will focus on incremental and transformational technology and system design challenges and opportunities to help guide the development of comprehensive, coordinated and integrated coastal monitoring systems for Florida’s estuaries and nearshore coastal waters.
In addition, guidance and outcomes from this meeting will directly influence Indian River Lagoon monitoring network planning and may feed into the United Nations Ocean Decade Implementation Plan (2021-2030).
What is a TechSurge?
Marine Technology Society TechSurges are conferences or workshops organized by MTS Sections or Technical Committees to address specific challenges that can be addressed with marine technologies. The meetings often publish papers in the Marine Technology Society Journal. We are seeking to publish papers from the Florida Estuary and Coastal Monitoring TechSurge in an upcoming issue of the Journal.
Who Should Attend?
Industry, government, academia and the general public involved or interested in using technology to monitor and solve water quality issues in our lagoons, estuaries, and oceans.
Call for Abstracts
We invite members of the community to submit ideas for presentations that apply marine technology for coastal monitoring and water quality solutions.
Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
• Technology innovations for remediation of nutrients and pollutants and habitat restoration coastal and water cleanup and restoration
• Transformative 21st century emerging technologies for ocean and coastal management
• Remote sensing from space and airborne systems
• Unmanned vehicles for automated monitoring
• Novel fisheries management
• Low size, weight and power sensors for long-term deployment
• Data management and big-data analytics for decision making
We are also seeking abstracts from authors that wish to develop full manuscripts, technical reports or commentaries to include in a special issue of the MTS Journal to be finalized after the event.
Please email abstracts to firstname.lastname@example.org – DEADLINE February 21, 2020.
