IEEE voting in progress - you should have received a ballot - don't forget to vote by Oct 1st!

In addition to the two candidates for 2013 IEEE president-elect, various IEEE divisions and regions, as well as IEEE Standards Association, IEEE Technical Activities, and IEEE-USA will be electing their officers.

Graham Hawkes to speak at IEEE Southeastern Michgan Fall 2012 Section Conference

"At Hawkes Ocean Technologies, we decided that to move efficiently through the 3-dimensional space of the ocean territories, our submersibles had to sprout wings and fly. Additionally, we have made a case for fixed positive buoyancy., and have now built four generations of fixed positive buoyancy (FBP) craft that use a streamlined, minimum frontal area and wings (fins) to generate the forces needed to overcome buoyancy for descent and for control over pitch, roll and yaw. I strongly believe that Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) will be the mainstay of future oceanographic commercial and scientific activity. At Hawkes Ocean Technologies, our current focus is to introduce the next generation ROV, which incorporates new proprietary fiber-optic tether technology and high energy-density batteries to enable range, depth, and deployment capabilities well beyond those of current-generation ROVs. It is my hope that this new generation of manned and unmanned vehicles we are introducing will lay a solid foundation for exploration before the inevitable exploitation of our blue planet."

OCEANS '12 MTS/IEEE Hampton Roads, VA, Oct. 14-19, 2012

OCEANS 2012’s theme, Harnessing the Power of the Ocean, has as its foundation a conceptual National Ocean Enterprise and its seven societal benefits as identified by the National Ocean Partnership Program’s legislation in 1999, followed by President’s Bush’s Ocean Action Plan and President Obama’s Ocean Science Policy.

UT13 International Symposium on Underwater Technology 2013 - Call for papers

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." We hope this will provide an opportunity for the experts and researchers in the field of underwater technology to discuss the possible measures to counter the disasters caused by the earthquakes and tsunami.

Suggested topics

Underwater Technology for Disaster Mitigation and Prevention
Advanced Technology for Ocean Resources and Energy
Underwater Vehicles and Robotics
Underwater Acoustics and Bio-Sonar
Underwater Observation Systems
Underwater Sensors
Submarine Cables and Connected Observatories
Signal and Information Processing
Underwater Construction
