Take the plunge and submit your abstract by 1 September to share your knowledge at the upcoming conference in Bergen 5-7 December.

The interest for deep sea minerals is increasing with the rising demand for responsible sourcing of critical minerals to meet the growing demand driven by the energy transition.

We will address implications, timelines, challenges and possibilities emerging within this nascent industry.

Topics of interest

We invite contributions within the following topics:

  • Exploration strategy and workflows: Methodology and technologies
  • Case studies and evaluations of DSM data sets, data management, and digital solutions

  • Deep sea mineral processing, adaptations from land-based processing
  • Environmental assessment and monitoring: Strategies, challenges, and opportunities, including real-time/automated data analysis and technologies
  • Public perception: What is required from the industry to gain social license

The program committee is particularly interested in receiving contributions concerning advances in technologies that are relevant to exploration and environmental assessment and monitoring.

We encourage postgraduate students to submit their work.

Abstracts will be evaluated for either oral presentation or a poster. All poster presenters will get a 5-minute pitch to showcase their work.
