The objectives of the CWTM Workshop are to provide the ocean community with a forum for technical information exchange and to promote coordination among those concerned with measuring current, waves and turbulence.  Our goal is to ensure that the CWTM Workshop remains the “go-to” forum for people who need to know how to measure ocean motions and how to translate those measurements into meaningful information.

Topic Areas

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 Currents, 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.

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.
