The magnificence of Tokyo will again greet international experts as they attend the third Underwater Technology symposium in April 2002,one of the most pleasant months in Japan. This highly successful symposium, is organized by the IEEE Oceanic Engineering Society (OES), its Tokyo Chapter, the University of Tokyo's Institute of Industrial Science, and the U.S. Office of Naval Research Asian Office, along with host organizations from several countries. "Technology for the Last Frontier" will provide a thematic umbrella under which attendees will discuss the problems and potential long term solutions that concern not only the Pacific Rim countries, but the world in general in areas that include underwater acoustics and signal processing, observation, construction, positioning, vehicles & robotics and bio-related technology. 

The four day event is scheduled for 16-19 April 2002. Nearly 200 attendees from 17 countries enjoyed 82 technical presentations at the second successful conference in this series, UT '00, also held in Tokyo. The number of papers accepted for this year’s event will again result in parallel sessions that will be highlighted by four keynote presentations from representatives from Japan, Taiwan, Korea and the United States. 

April is famous for cherry blossoms and special events, and, once again, the symposium venue will be the exquisite New Sanno Hotel. Attendees will also have an opportunity to visit area attractions including technical tour visits to National Space Development Agency of Japan (NASDA) and National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) at Tuskuba City, and other historical and cultural attractions around the Tokyo area. 

In addition, a separate follow-on workshop on Advances in Ocean Monitoring and Exploration for the New Century will be held on 22-23 April in Taipei, Taiwan. Don't miss out on these premier international events. For more information about the whorkshop, check the website. Taipei Workshop

Abstract Submission

Prospective authors are requested to submit proposed abstracts (limit to one page) by E-Mail, Fax, or regular mail 
also accepted. Please use the form for abstract submittal.  (Downlaod Abstract Form A in PDF format (334k) or Abstract Form B in HTML format.) .If using E-mail, please include the same information within the E-Mail message, not as an E-Mail attachment. In the abstract, authors should define the topic/problem that is being addressed, indicate the importance and how it pertains to the advancement or understanding of 
underwater technology. Following review of abstracts by the symposium technical committee, accepted authors 
will be notified by mail, and an author's kit for paper preparation will be provided. The following deadlines will be 
adhered to: 

Abstract Deadline - October 19, 2001
Notification of Acceptance - November 30, 2001
Camera Ready Paper Due - February 22, 2002


Presentation of Papers

The Technical program committee will assign papers to the appropriate sessions. Since formal papers and supporting data
will be published in the Symposium proceedings, presentations will be limited to 20 minutes, with 5 minutes for discussions.
The official language of the symposium is English.

Expenses Related to Papers

All papers are to follow the format provided in the author's kit. It is the responsibility of the authors to prepare
camera-ready manuscripts, including halftone black & white photos for the symposium proceedings. Authors are
responsible for all expenses incurred, including time spent, costs for preparation of manuscripts and illustrations,
travel to the symposium and symposium registration fees. Presentations will only be allowed for those papers
received in time for publication in the Proceedings. Accepted authors who fail to register at the symposium and
present their paper will be billed for the cost of publishing the paper.
