The conference will be held for the first time in Italy, at the beautiful city of Napoli. EWTEC 2019 will provide the needed platform and the meeting point between experts and world-class companies in the marine renewable energy sector. It will involve the participation of about
700 delegates from 35 different countries. This includes universities, research centres and industry active in the marine renewable energy sector. The conference will have facilities for exhibitors, workshops and side events and will present an exciting platform for the wave and tidal energy community to interact and network. As indicated above, Abstract submission opens from the 3rdSeptember 2018.

A selection of the submitted papers will have the opportunity to be published in the Internatio
nal Marine Energy Journal (IMEJ).

This will be the great event in Wave and Tidal Energy of 2019. Don’t miss it!
