Call for Technical Papers

Mari-Tech 2022 Conference & Exhibition, Making Waves: The 4th Industrial Revolution, invites members of Canada and the United States’ marine engineering community to contribute technical papers for presentation at the conference being held in Niagara Falls, Ontario on May 17-19, 2022.

The 4th Industrial Revolution has the advantages of increased productivity, efficiency and quality in processes; greater safety for workers by reducing jobs in dangerous environments; enhanced decision making with data-based tools; and improved competitiveness by developing customised products that satisfy consumers’ needs

Why present at Mari-Tech 2022?

Do you want a chance to make an impact and share your knowledge? Mari-Tech 2022 is all about profiling leading-edge applications and concepts whether it be delivery of a challenging marine project; development of best practices in the maritime sector; new research, development and innovation; or even a critique of the status quo.

Presenting at Mari-Tech 2022 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 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 as aligned with our theme.

  • Maritime emissions and the era of ultra-low-sulphur fuel oil
  • Alternative fuels; alternative energy capture and storage
  • Sails, solar, and other sustainable energy in reducing the carbon footprint
  • Electric propulsion; hybrid solutions
  • Autonomous vessels; automation
  • Digital twins; data analytics
  • Vessel innovations: antifouling, ballast alternatives, hull designs
  • Arctic operations for equipment and vessels

How will sessions be formatted?

Mari-Tech 2022 will offer technical presentations of 30 minutes (20 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 p.m. (ET), Monday, November 1, 2021. Abstracts must be written in English.

How are papers selected?

Mari-Tech 2022 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, innovation, and relevance with more educational value than a business development focus..

The Program Subcommittee, at its sole discretion, may select any or none of the abstracts received and it’s decisions are final. Invitations to present will be sent to authors whose abstracts are accepted by the Program Subcommittee by Friday, November 26, 2021.

Questions regarding submitting an abstract should be directed to the Mari-Tech 2022 Program Subcommittee.
