Accepted Papers and Proceedings

Accepted and presented papers will be made available in the proceedings and submitted to IEEE XPlore. Exception is made to the cases where the authors choose not to publish (off-the-record submission).

Expanded versions may then be submitted for consideration for inclusion in a Special Collection in the IEEE Journal of Oceanic Engineering.
