The 7th UK Marine Technology Postgraduate Conference (MTPC) will be hosted by The University of Southampton on 16th & 17th April 2024
Sponsored by MarRI-UK
The aim is to bring together postgraduate students and early career researchers in marine technology to share and discuss their current research to Industry and other Academics in a low-pressure environment.
The opportunity is provided to present individual work, understand what research is being undertaken at other UK institutions and to network and build contacts for the future.
The conference will include a blend of poster sessions and presentations, supported by proceedings comprising poster and presentation abstracts. The conference sessions will be chaired by appropriate academics and industrialists, who will be able to further enhance the knowledge sharing that the conference aims to promote.
The maritime sector is on the cusp of an exciting revolution, embracing a range of novel and innovative technologies and ideas towards cleaner, safer and smarter vessels, ports and operations.
The overarching themes of the conference are chosen to reflect this.
- Clean & Decarbonised Maritime Systems
- Digitally Enabled Maritime Systems
- Autonomous Maritime systems
Example topic areas could include:
- Ship Propulsion & Energy Transitions
- Ship Design & Digital Twins
- Marine Engineering
- Small Craft and Yacht Design
- Marine Renewables
- Marine Structures
- Artificial Intelligence in Maritime
- Clean and Smart Ports
- Clean Shipping Corridors
The UK MTPC is an opportunity for postgraduate researchers from any UK institution to present an aspect of their current work and is mainly aimed at those currently studying for a Doctorate, MPhil or equivalent in a marine technology subject, though abstracts will be considered for presentation from Masters students and early career post-doctoral researchers where appropriate. Speakers will be required to present either a summary of their work so far or a particular aspect of their research.
Dates and deadlines for submission will follow shortly.
