Demo Session

The demonstrations at WUWNet aim at complementing the overall program of the conference by showing real-world, applied-and-tested advances of underwater technologies. As such, demos are an opportunity for researchers and practitioners to present their innovative prototypes, practical developments, on-going projects, and lessons learnt relevant for the topics of interest of the main conference. Submissions from both industry and universities are encouraged.

Demo Submission Instructions

Submit an extended abstract (no more than 2 pages) of your demo as a PDF e-mail attachment to: and using the following subject line: WUWNet 2015 Demo Submission.

Please, be as specific as possible in describing what you will demonstrate or exhibit. The extended abstract must include a short description of space and equipment requirements.

Accepted abstracts will be posted and maintained on the workshop website.
