About the meeting: The OTO’18 (OCEANS’18 MTS/ IEEE Kobe / Techno-Ocean 2018) will be held May 28~31, 2018 in Kobe, Japan. The event is hosted by three joint-organizers – the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (IEEE/OES), the Marine Technology Society (MTS) and the Japanese Organization of the Consortium for Techno-Ocean 2018 (CJO). The venue will be Kobe Convention Center, a state-of-the-art facility located on Kobe’s Port- Island, (Japan’ first man-made island). Kobe itself is an international port city facing the tranquil waters of the Seto Inland Sea, and cradled below the surrounding Rokko mountain range. Tourism city Kobe is also conveniently close to the ancient cities of Kyoto, Nara, Osaka and Himeji. The OTO’18 convention will be an excellent opportunity to focus on the topics that interest you, in every field related to Marine Technology and Ocean Engineering. We look forward to your participation at OTO’18.
