Conference on "Communicating Sensors for Ocean Engineering" in Nantes

This conference is being held as part of the "Journées Scientifiques" of Nantes University on Friday 03 June 2022 at the Cité des Congrès in Nantes.

On June 3, 2022 from 09:00 To 17:00

This one-day event, focusing on communicating sensors for ocean engineering, aims to provide a technical and scientific overview of intelligent sensors deployed in the maritime field (airborne, underwater or at the interface) involving data transfer over acoustic, radio or optical links. This field concerns one of the development priorities of the LS2N, LHEEA, GeM and IUML laboratories. The objective is to bring together academic and industrial players from the Pays de La Loire and Brittany regions around a highly interdisciplinary subject (physics, digital, biology, SHS, etc.) as well as some identified European partners.
