RIO Acoustics 2013, Call for papers - due Feb 8, 2013

IEEE/OES Acoustics in Underwater Geosciences Symposium Centro Empresarial, Rio de Janeiro, 24‒26 July 2013.  Brazil has one of the world’s longest coastline and adjacent territorial waters of about 4.5 million km² which corresponds approximately to half of the country’s land area. Today Brazilian oceanic area is a major target for oil companies from all over the world because of the recent giant discoveries of the pre-salt. Inland there is over 6500 km of waterways and tens of major dams from hydroelectric power plants. The Brazilian government has started a large program for the evaluation of the marine mineral resources with the REMPLAC project, which aims to determine the potential for different mineral resources along the entire Brazilian coast.  Details at:  http://www.rioacoustics.org/

Underwater Technology 2013 (UT13), early registration deadline 10 Feb., 2013

We are delighted to announce the International Symposium on Underwater Technology 2013 (UT13) to be held in Tokyo, from March 5 - 8, 2013. It is a highly successful series of symposium organized by the IEEE OES Japan Chapter, the University of Tokyo's Institute of Industrial Science (IIS), Earthquake Research Institute and Japan Agency for Marine-Earth Science and Technology (JAMSTEC). The symposium will provide a thematic umbrella under which attendees will discuss the problems and potential long-term solutions that concern not only the Pacific Rim countries, but the world in general. As the meeting will be held after two years since the giant earthquake that struck North-Eastern Coast of Japan, we have decided to organize a special session for "Underwater Technology for Disaster Mitigation and Prevention."  Details at: http://seasat.iis.u-tokyo.ac.jp/ut2013/

INCHOE2014 is the fifth in a series of Indian Conferences on Harbour and Ocean Engineering being held since 1994. INCHOE brings together the research of Academia, Industry, Scientists and the user community of ports, harbour, coastal and ocean engineering.  Extended abstracts of original work of the authors including measurement, analysis, theoretical, physical modelling and validated numerical modelling, for the following themes are invited. Any topics not listed below but of relevance to the objectives of INCHOE2014 would also be considered.

  • Port & Harbour Engineering
  • Ocean Engineering
  • Coastal Processes
  • Coastal Engineering
  • Environment & Resources
  • Disaster, Risk, Development and Management

Request for Nominations to the Administrative Committee, Class of 2013
The IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society is governed by an Administrative Committee of 18 members. Six are elected each year to serve three-year terms. Members are limited to two consecutive terms, although they may be reelected after a lapse of one year.
The Nomination and Appointments Committee is Chaired by the Junior Past President, with the Senior Past President and the most recently retired Senior Past President completing the Committee. They are charged with proposing a slate of nominees and with conducting the election, which is done electronically to the entire membership. The electronic election requires each member that wishes to vote to have an IEEE account. Therefore, visit IEEE.org to establish your account if needed.
Qualifications for Administrative Committee membership are membership in the IEEE and OES, and a willingness to serve the oceanic engineering profession. The Society wishes to have the Administrative Committee characteristics reflect characteristics of the IEEE membership. We are particularly interested in increasing the Asian and European membership of the Committee.  I ask that each of you identify and nominate qualified candidates for the Administrative Committee. Self-nomination is encouraged.
The Nomination Packet should include a Letter of Nomination accompanied by a one page biographical sketch of the proposed candidate with picture and a one-page statement from the proposed candidate giving his or her views of the opportunities and challenges facing the Society and steps to be taken to advance the IEEE Oceanographic Engineering Society.
The election will be conducted in accordance with our Bylaws. You can read them by going to the Society's Web Site (www.ieeeoes.org), and pointing to Bylaws 2006 under Governing Documents. The Bylaws specify that general nominations close on March 1, and nominations by petition close by April 15.

Please submit nominations to the undersigned.  Please do not delay your efforts in finding and nominating qualified candidates.
