Final Call for Papers - Oceans '06 Boston, September 18-21, 2006
Final Abstract Deadline: April 7, 2006

The Oceans 2006 MTS/IEEE North America Conference and Exhibition will be held in historic Boston, Massachusetts September 18-21, 2006. The birthplace of the American Revolution, Massachusetts and the surrounding New England region enjoy a centuries-old relationship with the ocean; from the fishing and whaling ports of Gloucester and New Bedford, to the premier technology centers of the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and the US Navy's Undersea Warfare Center.

The OCEANS '06 technical program will continue to emphasize the traditional core areas of marine science and technology development, including such areas as: underwater acoustics, sonar signal processing, current measurement, seafloor remote sensing, transducer technology, precision navigation, deep ocean exploration, undersea vehicles, and submarine cable technology.

In addition, the Boston Conference plans to emphasize several new "hot topic" areas of high interest to the members of the OES/MTS research community:

    Homeland Security Applications
    Ocean Observatories
    Tsunami Early-Warning Systems
    Marine Mammal Classification
    AUV/UUV/Glider Technology
    Arctic Ocean Science
    Distributed Sensors and Networks
    Optical Properties of Water
    Marine Archeology
    Non-acoustic Imaging

Please note the following important dates:
