WiMUST Summer School 2016

16 June 2016, Newcastle University (UK)




The Widely Scalable Mobile Underwater Technology (WiMUST) project's team is glad to announce the WiMUST Summer School 2016 that will be held the 16 June 2016 at Newcastle (UK) in conjunction with the EU funded Marine Robotics and Applications Workshop (EMRA2016). The school is focused on distributed acoustic array technologies for geophysical surveying at sea, with a view on exploration and geotechnical applications.
