    Congratulations to Student PosterAward Winners at OCEANS San Diego

    Students were able to enjoy the opportunity of bringing their research to the eyes of the conference attendees by displaying and explaining their work, presented in 16 outstanding posters, selected from 100 received Abstracts. The students came from schools spread across Europe, Asia, the USA and Canada.

    The program was organised and directed by K. Delaney as the local coordinator and by representatives from both organising societies; Jill Zande from MTS and Christophe Sintes from IEEE-OES. Once again, the program was supported by funding from the US Navy Office of Naval Research, enabling the students to attend the conference. The posters were judged by a team selected by MTS and IEEE-OES.


  • The first prize of $3,000, now named the Norman Miller award, went to Natalia Hurtos for A novel blending technique for two dimensional forward looking sonar mosaicking.
  • The second prize of $2,000 was awarded to Luke Rumbaugh for A 532nm Chaotic lidar transmitter for high resolution underwater ranging and imaging.
  • The third prize of $1,000 was given to Sean Walstead for Reconstructing surface wave profiles from forward scattered acoustic pulses.
  • The honorable mention prize was given to Donia Frank for Direct measurements of sediment response to wave with smart sediments grains.
