|International Conference on Maritime Technology
Glasgow, UK, 7th¨C9th July 2014
Following the success of ICMT2012 in Harbin Engineering University, China, in June 2012, the organisation committee is organising the second conference of the series, ICMT 2014, on 7th - 9th July 2014 in Glasgow, UK.
As concern for the environment continues to increase, a greater understanding of the way the maritime activities impact on the marine environment is essential. There is a requirement to develop new technologies and operational practices to reduce the impact of the maritime activities on environment and thereby ensuring sustainability. This conference therefore aims to gather operators, designers, constructors, marine scientists, regulatory authorities and researchers to discuss technological advancement and implementations that will lead to the reduction of adverse impacts that marine activities have on the environment.
• The abstract review is finished, we would welcome the full papers.
• Early bird registration fees are offered at a 25 pounds off discount to encourage early registration by 23rd of May.
• We gratefully acknowledge our sponsors, Lloyd's Registration Marine and Class NK.
