Call for Technical Papers

Call for Technical Papers

Mari-Tech 2020 Conference & Exhibition: Vision, Innovation and Trending in the Marine Sector, invites members of the Canadian and international marine engineering and industrial communities to contribute technical paper proposals for presentation at the conference being held in Halifax, NS, April 28-30, 2020.

Why present at Mari-Tech 2020?

Do you want a chance to make an impact and share your knowledge?  Mari-Tech 2020 is all about profiling leading-edge applications and concepts whether it be delivery of a challenging project, development of best practices, new research and development, or even a critique of the status quo.

Presenting offers invaluable opportunities regardless of what stage you are in your career.  Experienced professionals benefit from presenting to a diverse and well-informed audience while young practitioners gain confidence presenting to a supportive group of fellow marine engineers.

What are the “Hot Topics”?

Abstracts for technical sessions should generally align with the following “hot topics” areas.  However, these topics are not exclusive and abstracts on state-of-the-art and innovative advances in all areas of marine engineering will be considered.

  • Maritime emissions and the era of ultra-low-sulphur fuel;
  • Alternative fuels, alternative energy capture and storage;
  • Electric propulsion, hybrid solutions;
  • Autonomous ships, vessel; automation;
  • Vessel innovations: antifouling, ballast alternatives, hull design; and
  • Arctic operation.

How will sessions be formatted?

Mari-Tech 2020 will offer tradition technical presentations of 45 minutes (35 minutes presentation; 10 minute Q&A).

How to submit an abstract:

Authors are invited to submit their abstract of a maximum of 250 words online by 11:59 a.m. (ET), Monday, September 30, 2019.  Abstracts must be written in English.

How are papers selected?

Mari-Tech 2020 Program Subcommittee will review all abstracts and make selections using a “consensus” approach.  The intention is to select interesting abstracts that will inspire lively and fruitful discussions.  As selection will be based on the abstracts received, it is important that they contain sufficient information to demonstrate technical merit, more educational value than a business development focus, innovation and relevance.

The Program Subcommittee, at its sole discretion, may select any or none of the abstracts received and its decisions are final.

Invitations to present will be sent to authors whose abstracts are accepted by the Program Subcommittee by Friday, October 18, 2019.

Questions regarding submitting an abstract should be directed to the Mari-Tech 2020 Program Subcommittee.
