  • Student Poster Competition (SPC): We offer an opportunity for students to present their research and interact with researchers and professionals during OCEANS 2020 Singapore. The SPC is open to all undergraduate and graduate students enrolled, at least half time, in any community college, college, or university worldwide. Submitted abstracts will be evaluated by a panel of experts, and about 15-20 abstracts will be selected for the competition. Students accepted to the SPC are required to submit a full paper, and prepare a poster to be displayed and evaluated at the conference (April 7-9, 2020 August 12-14, 2020). Financial support including conference registration, travel and accommodation, is provided to all students selected for the SPC. Follow the submission guidelines mentioned here to submit your abstracts.
  • Workshops, Tutorials, and Demonstrations: We also seek those who wish to lead topical tutorials, workshops, or product demonstrations. The tutorial sessions are pre-conference half- or full-day sessions that provide in-depth, interactive education to expand attendees’ knowledge of key technology or emerging areas of technology, research, or application. The tutorial and workshops complements the technical program. Please write to the Tutorials/Workshops Chair to submit your request for Workshops, Tutorials, and Demonstrations.
