Abstracts are being accepted through Jan. 22, for the Marine Energy Technology Symposium (METS), which takes place April 25-27 at the Capital Hilton Hotel in Washington, D.C., during the National Hydropower Association’s Water Power Week.
The METS 2016 organizing committee is seeking 3-5 page extended abstracts that focus on design, analysis, environmental evaluation, socio-economic evaluation of wave energy and water current energy converter technologies. Specific areas of interest include the following:
– Device design, analysis, simulation, and optimization;
– Environmental effects evaluation and simulation;
– Resource assessment and characterization;
– Laboratory and open water experimental testing;
– Materials and coatings;
– Design and analysis of mooring systems;
– Array layout and optimization;
– Device deployment strategies;
– Operations and maintenance strategies;
– Cost-of-energy modeling;
– Code validation and verification;
– Marine energy related social science research; and
– Governmental policy and regulatory considerations.
The committee will review abstracts received by Jan. 22, and by Feb. 19 authors will receive acceptance notifications and reviewer feedback.
The METS 2016 proceedings will consist of extended abstract submissions and technical presentations. Selected authors must submit revised extended abstracts by March 11. Papers will be presented April 25 or 27.
