Registration is now open for the National Oceanography Centre’s (NOC) Marine Autonomy and Technology Showcase (MATS) 2019, which will take place from 12–14 November at the NOC’s waterfront site in Southampton.

This year saw a record number of abstracts submitted, and the organising committee is looking forward to building upon last year’s success and delivering a packed programme of presentations, panel discussions, exhibits and networking opportunities over the three days.

MATS2019 will welcome a broad roster of speakers and exhibitors from across industry, academia, and government organisations. Each day of the showcase – hosted in our Southampton quayside marquee – will see leading figures from the world of marine autonomy and technology take to the stage to present on innovative, disruptive technologies, as well as discussions focusing on the latest developments, future priorities and challenges for the sector.

There are a limited number of exhibition spaces still available – full details of the packages can be found on our conference pages.

Tickets are priced at £180 (including VAT) for the three-day event, which includes lunch and refreshments, access to the icebreaker drinks, and an evening networking supper. The full programme and biographies of the speakers will be announced in the coming weeks. Full details on how to register are available on the NOC Conference website.
