Tutorials are half-day or full-day presentations that are meant to complement the technical program of OCEANS '15 MTS/IEEE Washington, DC by describing the fundamental elements of a technology and/or rudiments of a subject in a classroom setting. All tutorial sessions will be held on Monday, OCTOBER 19, the day before the formal opening of the conference.

Tutorials are an “add-on” to the main conference registration; however, you may register for a Tutorial without registering for the full conference.  To do so please proceed to our online Registration system http://washington15.oceansconference.org/ then select the TUTORIAL ONLY REGISTRATION option when prompted for the registration type. If you are registering as a full conference registrant, you will be able to add individual tutorials during that registration process.

The tutorials are conducted under the auspices of the International Association of Continuing Education and Training (IACET) and Continuing Education Certificates are issued to participants who request them.

Linked to each Tutorial Title in the below list is a detailed description of the Tutorial and instructor.
