Workshop on Ocean Internet of Things (IoT)

Ocean IoT has generated a lot of attention due to its potential for exploring new possibilities in underwater technologies and systems such as sensing, imaging, communication, drone technology, localization, marine life monitoring, and carbon cycle tracking. The Workshop on Ocean IoT serves as a platform to explore and discuss these latest innovations for large-scale sensing of the underwater world.
