OCOSS’2013 aims to take stock of the recent projections and the future developments of researches and technologies related to observation of seas and oceans within the framework, on the European level, of the Declaration of Aberdeen and on the French level, of the “Grenelle de la mer”.

It draws up a broad spectrum covering physical oceanography (waves, tide, currents, thermocline, salinity, turbidity,...) and marine geosciences, meteorology and climatology, the environmental monitoring and of the littoral ecosystem, the optimization of the fishing resources, assistance with exploration and exploitation of the oceans (offshore oil rig, marine energy: swell, wind, thermic, oil.), the cartography of sea-beds (bathymetry, imagery, geology,...), space oceanography, underwater robot-like systems, systems of detection and control of the sea traffic civil, METOC systems and military systems of information & command of the naval forces.

As the back issues the general topics of this conference will be organized around 

the following research topics (no exhaustive list):

  • Sensors for Environmental Ecosystem Assessment: Multiscales & Multi-physics Models,
  • Sensors for Green-Energy: Off-shore Wind-Farm, Hydroliennes, énergie marine,
  • Biosensors for real time monitoring of biohazard and man-made chemical contaminants
  • Innovative multifunctional sensors for in-situ monitoring of marine environment and related maritime activities
  • Operating Environment Assessment for EM, EO/IR & Acoustic Sensors,
  • Remote Sensing Technics, Processing and Data management,
  • METOC (Meteorology Oceanography) Systems,
  • Underwater, Onshore/Offshore & Airborne Observation Platforms,
  • Maritime Safety & Security Surveillance Systems (Sea and Harbors),
  • Awareness system and risk management,
  • Practical Access to the Frequency Spectrum,
  • Innovative antifouling materials for maritime applications,
  • Innovative transport and deployment systems for the offshore wind energy sector, [...]

OCOSS’2013 will also focus on subjects developed by various locals laboratories and research centres:

  • Measurement Instruments for the field (space, airborne, etc.),
  • Maritime risks modeling,
  • Multi-scale and multi-physic models for the evaluation of environmental ecosystems,
  • Risk and Disaster management, [...]
