Each year MTS sponsors numerous conferences, technical symposia, and workshops, including OCEANS, Dynamic Positioning, Underwater Intervention, and TechSurge. The March/April 2013 issue of the MTS Journal (Vol. 47, No. 2) provides the opportunity for papers presented at MTS conferences and workshops to be expanded into full peer-reviewed articles. The papers in this issue cover a range of diverse subjects from dynamic positioning to marine forensics and more. As you attend and present papers at future MTS conferences and workshops, consider expanding your proceedings paper into a Journal publication!
