National Oceanography Centre Launches Call for Abstract Submissions for 2020 Marine Techology Showcase (MATS 2020)

08 April 2020

Building upon the record-breaking success of MATS 2019, this year’s event is scheduled to take place from Tuesday 10 November to Thursday 12 November at the National Oceanography Centre’s Southampton site.

This year’s showcase will primarily focus on new developments and innovations, and will also look forward to where marine autonomous technology and ocean exploration is heading in the next five years. 

The overarching themes of MATS 2020 are to explore the information needs of users of Marine Autonomous Systems (MAS), review the current technologies available to enable cutting-edge data gathering for MAS users and explore the methods of transforming raw data into exploitable information for the end user.

Full details of this year’s themes and how to submit your abstract are available on the NOC's conference pages. The deadline for submissions is 19 July.
