Thank you for your interest in speaking at the UMC 2023 conference. The UMC and IMMS are committed to providing the latest evidenced-based, non-biased scientific content to our participants. We are always looking for knowledgeable, energetic, experienced, and academically recognized speakers who want to share their expertise and / or research findings to all interested parties.

Your abstract and expertise will be reviewed with consideration to our identified needs assessment results, to this year’s conference focus, peer-reviewed journals, and ongoing stakeholder evaluation recommendations. Please note, if invited to speak, you may be presenting to an audience of 200+ ocean mining stakeholders who will be participating in a 5-minute question and answer session at the end of your presentation.

If you prefer to present a poster, you can submit your abstract as one.

Poster size: A0 or A1 (vertical recommended)

Tripod stands will be provided for hanging the posters. 

Printing can be done locally for additional cost. Please contact us about that.

The abstract should be sent by June 30, 2023 by clicking on the "Submit your Abstract" button below. Please note that we do not impose a length requirement for the abstracts. We will notify you about the acceptance in August and you will have one month from this date to send us the full essay / paper, if you desire. Your presentation is due one week before the conference (should be sent by email) and it should be tailored to fit a 15-minute presentation. With the acceptance email, you will also receive instructions about the presentation, the poster and the abstract to be published. Please click in the link below to submit your abstract.
