        What is a session at Sea Tech Week®?

        Each session lasts half a day (a morning or an afternoon, including coffee break). There are several possible formats, including oral presentation and panel discussion. Speakers may be invited by the session convenor(s) and/or selected following the Sea Tech Week® call for abstracts. Single sessions may be convened by a maximum of two organisations.

        A subject may require more than one session. A single convenor may submit multiple session proposals.

        Any session proposals dedicated solely to promoting a product or a service will not be accepted.

        Session proposals must be submitted on behalf of a legal entity (such as an academic institution, research centre, company, public body, cluster or association).

        How to submit a session proposal?

        You’ll need to complete the proposal form by 6 September 2021 4th October 2021 (extended deadline)

        [Go to the form]

        The informations required are:

        • Description of the session (800 characters)
        • Name of the convenor(s) and contact information
        • Topics
        • Format and outputs


        What is the selection process?

        The Sea Tech Week® Technical Committee will select the sessions in September 2021. The selection criteria will be:

        • The proposal’s link with the conference theme and topics
        • The innovative nature of the subject (R&D, latest scientific results, new collaboration, etc.)
        • The international dimension (NB sessions will be conducted in English)
        • Support for women in marine science and technology.


        The Technical Committee may also recommend how to arrange the sessions throughout the conference schedule, and possibly merge multiple sessions on the same, or a similar subject.

        Once their sessions have been accepted, convenors will be invited to:

        • Participate in the various meetings dedicated to building the final conference programme (with the ‘Sessions’ working group)
        • Promote their sessions, and Sea Tech Week® more broadly, among their networks
        • Review and select the abstracts for presentations in their session(s) (This only applies where the convenor has agreed to include presentations using this process. Please note that no calls for abstracts are allowed other than those managed by the Sea Tech Week® organisers).
