MTS Society

The Student Poster Program and Competition has been an integral and important part of the OCEANS Conferences since 1989. The program is designed to foster and promote student involvement in technical societies and conferences and to provide a forum for the student to interact with marine professionals.  It is open to engineering and science graduate and undergraduate students of any tertiary level university or college worldwide. The posters on display have been selected from 53 submitted abstracts from schools in Asia, Africa, Europe and North America.  The program has been supported by a grant from the US Navy Office of Naval Research. The posters will be judged by a panel of judges and prices will be awarded at the Conference Banquet.  The posters will be on display in the Exhibition area throughout the OCEANS Conference. They will be on display from 2:00 - 5:00 PM on Tuesday and all day on Wednesday and Thursday.  Students will be at their posters during breaks and free periods.  You are invited and encouraged to view the posters and talk with the students.
