As ICOE2019 would like to have more number of delegates, the organizing committee has decided to extend the deadline for the submission of full paper to 17 March 2019. This applies also to researchers who have forgotten to submit abstract .

 

The Fifth International Conference on Ocean Engineering (ICOE2019) will be organized by the University of Mauritius and the Department of Ocean Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Madras (IITM).

The theme of the conference is ‘Ocean Engineering —Towards achieving Sustainable Development Goals’. Ocean resources and its environment contribute significantly to the global community. As demand for resources increases and land resources getting scarce, development in the ocean sector is increasing at a fast rate. For many ocean resources can bring along opportunities to address pertinent issues such as food, water security and social welfare. Technology is key to sustainable development of ocean resources.

The purpose of this conference is to highlight how technology is being used to contribute to the challenges  of addressing Sustainable Development Goals, (SGDs). For those countries having an Exclusive Economic Zone, the ocean or blue economy is being given due importance. The development of the Ocean Economy is happening worldwide and at a time when the importance of sustainable development is of great significance. How can technology help developing ocean resources in a sustainable way? This conference aims at highlighting these opportunities.
