MTS Tech Surge & Maritime Innovations November 28th & 29th, 2017

MTS Tech Surge & CIE Maritime Innovations 2017

The Maritime Innovations Conference is the premier event in New England for connecting the marine technology industry for education, networking, and facilitating partnering opportunities. The theme for this year’s conference is autonomy, with cybersecurity and communication as sub themes. This year’s event, which is being held in conjunction with the Marine Technology Society’s (MTS) Tech Surge, is being held on November 28th and 29th at the UMass CIE, 151, Martine Street, Fall River MA. We expect over 250 attendees over the course of the two-days of programming. 

DAY 1 - MTS Tech Surge: Subsea and Marine Autonomy - Tuesday November 28, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 5:00 PM EST

This one day event will include speakers and panel sessions. The Tech Surge will take place November 28th in Fall River MA. The sessions will include representatives from the academic, commercial, and military sectors focusing on subsea and marine autonomy. The speakers and panel sessions will focus on the present technologies available including networking, hardware, software, and swarming techniques. Networking of unmanned vehicles includes communication, maneuvering, onboard processing and operational complexity, all components that are essential in such networks. This event will cover a multi-faceted discussion in autonomous platforms, applications, and technologies.

DAY 2 - CIE Maritime Innovations - Wednesday November 29, 2017 from 8:30 AM to 7:00 PM EST

Join us for the Annual Maritime Innovation: connecting, training and advancing conference. This event will bring together leading edge marine technology companies for a day of programming aimed at providing an overview of current trends in the industry, and a showcase of start up companies to discuss their new technologies.

This event is Sponsored by the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth's Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship and is part of our mission to connect the university with industry, organizations, state and federal agencies, and other key stakeholders in order to grow the region's economy.
