Abstracts are being accepted through Jan. 10 for the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS), which takes place April 30-May 2 in Washington, D.C., during the National Hydropower Association’s Waterpower Week.
For oral presentation, the METS 2018 organizing committee is seeking 3-4 page extended abstracts that address the technical, environmental, economic and societal aspects of wave and current energy converters.
Specific areas of interest include:
- Engineering research, development, and demonstration of systems and components through simulation, laboratory experiments, and field testing
- Assessment and characterization of resources through simulation and field measurements
- Identification, monitoring, and mitigation of environmental effects
- Economic assessments
- Societal research and policy developments related to marine energy
Authors interested in presenting a poster are required to submit a shorter 300-word abstract. The deadline for these is Feb. 15.
The committee will review abstracts received, and by Feb. 28 authors will receive notification of acceptance.
The METS 2018 proceedings will consist of extended abstract submissions and technical presentations.
METS is held as part of Waterpower Week in Washington, along with the International Marine Renewable Energy Conference and the National Hydropower Association Annual Conference.
