The authors are encouraged to submit abstracts for presentations within any of the following themes: impact of marine renewable energy (MRE) devices on marine environment; acceptability of new technologies with adequate social commitments towards stakeholders; good practices on technology development; acoustic and electromagnetic impact of installation of MRE technologies; biogeochemical hazards applied to MRE; effective resource and environment knowledge on MRE; and extreme events assessment and survivability of MRE.
