      March 2-6, 2015    |  Hilton St. Petersburg Bayfront   |   Florida


Workshop Theme

“Quality from End to End“

In today’s world, there have been many changes in the science and technology of current, waves and turbulence measurement.  Sensors are linked to real-time data telemetry, QA, archiving, processing, and distribution systems and what happens to data in these systems is as important as making good measurements.

For the 2015 workshop we are soliciting the submission of papers on topic areas that address emerging technologies or issues of timely interest to the oceanographic community, including:

  • Networking, Archiving and QA / QC
  • Manufacturer / User Collaborations
  • Current Measurement from Autonomous Vehicles
  • Innovative and Informative Visualization of Current, Waves and Turbulence Measurement

We also continue to encourage technical papers on Current, Waves and Turbulence Measurement topics traditionally covered in previous CWTM workshops. 

  • Real Time Measurement 
  • Standards in Current, Waves and Turbulence Measurement
  • Applications of Current, Waves and Turbulence Measurement
  • Waves and Turbulence Measurement
  • Measurement Platforms
  • Doppler Technologies

Participation in the CWTM Workshop by scientists and engineers from industrial and commercial organizations is especially encouraged in order to share knowledge in this evolving field and help to define measurement requirements.

Who Should Attend:

Academic, industry, military and government scientists  interested  in keeping abreast of the newest  information in current, waves and turbulence measurement technology

Student Grants:

IEEE OES is pleased to provide up to five young investigator grants to students and Postdocs to support their participation in the CWTM Workshop.   To learn more about the Student Grants click here.

Best Paper Award:

At the dinner on Wednesday, March 4, the Technical Committee will present the IEEE OES/CWTM 2015 award for the best paper presented at the workshop. The finalist will be chosen by the Committee and Session Chairs. There are no specific requirements for this.

New for Exhibitors:

Each afternoon includes a time slot for indoor or on-water demonstrations and training. Arrangements have been made with the University of South Florida, College of Marine Science (USF-CMS) to accommodate our vendors' dockside and boat needs. The USF-CMS is just a short walk from the Hilton.
