The Sea is the medium that allowed people to travel from one continent to another using vessels and even today despite the use of aircraft. It has been acting also as a great reservoir and source of foods for all living beings. However, for many generations it served as a landfill for depositing conventional and nuclear wastes, especially in its deep seabeds and there is a race to exploit minerals and resources, different from foods, encompassed in it. Its health is a very challenge for the survival of all humanity since it is one the most important environmental components targeted by the global warming: Tsunami and El Niño are consequences and indicators of bad development. As everyone may know, measuring is a step that allows major knowledge of a phenomenon or an asset. That is why MetroSea will serve as a forum for presenting recent advances in the field of measurement and instrumentation to be applied for the increasing of our knowledge for protecting and preserving the Sea.
MetroSea aims to gather people who work in developing instrumentation and measurement methods for the sea. Attention is paid, but not limited to, new technology for sea environment monitoring, metrology-assisted production in sea industry, ship component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for the sea, and calibration methods for electronic test and measurement for marine applications.
Accepted papers will be submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore Digital Library.
Special Session Proposal Deadline
Special sessions have the main aim of creating a mini-workshop on a specific topic, where researchers working on the same argument can make knowledge, familiarize, exchange ideas, create cooperation.
ANNOUNCEMENTS & INITIATIVES
Reggio Calabria is a busy town in Calabria, at the tip of Italy's 'toe' and just over the water from Sicily. Along with Messina in Sicily, on the other side of the Strait of Messina, Reggio Calabria was almost totally destroyed in a devastating earthquake in 1908. The town was rebuilt to elegant plans and - for a port - it is a surprisingly pleasant and amiable place, busy with traffic but rejoicing in a lovely setting. Reggio is a transport hub for ferry services to Sicily, and it is also on the tourist map for its archaeological museum.
