The COVID-19 continues to impact our events. While there is hope with the development of a vaccine that we will be able to emerge from the pandemic in 2021, the timing of when enough people will have been vaccinated to return to in person events is unknown.
Considering the above situation, IEEE-OES, MTS and the local organizing committee of OCEANS 2021 Porto have decided to cancel this event. The local organizing committee will work with the local organizing committee of OCEANS 2021 San Diego to determine elements that can be provided virtually. All abstract and paper submission will be done in accordance with the OCEANS 2021 San Diego website and announcements.
