OT 2019 Conference Program
The China Ocean Technology Conference and the newly launched OceanTech International Symposium form part of an umbrella program -- OceanTech Program -- that unfurls into an exhibition, co-located conferences, technical seminars, workshops, and live demonstrations. Networking events include a guided tour for delegates to visit some of the most important ocean facilities in Zhoushan. OT Talent Club also taps into the OT resource to foster career development for China’s rising stars.
Ocean College owns advanced research facilities, and, counting some to be completed, include:
The Committee of Ocean Technology System (OTS), based at Ocean College, Zhejiang University, was established in 2017 in Zhoushan. The formation of OTS was initiated by the Zhejiang University community and approved by the Chinese Society of Oceanography. OTS’ primary objective is to help fulfill China’s initiatives for strengthening its oceanic capabilities.
OTS’ scope covers the technology and equipment employed in the studies of ocean sciences, marine resource exploitation, environmental protection and national security assurance.
OTS’ roles include organizing academic seminars, conducting internationally collaborated projects and optimizing available resources by substantiating, assessing, awarding and promoting innovative programs to foster ocean technology development.
As a national platform for the marine disciplines, OTS supports domestic innovation by establishing systematic R&D and manufacturing channels. Additionally, OTS works with experts in the ocean technology equipment community to create demand to accelerate the scientific, technological and commercial advancements of this sector.
OTS advocates for expanding education and training for the industry, and provides advice on national strategies, policies and decisions to support the development of new technology clusters and commercializing ocean technology innovations.
Among the founding members of OTS are (in no particular order)
- Zhejiang University
- Institute of Deep-sea Science and Engineering, Chinese Academy of Sciences (IDSSE, CAS)
- Shanghai Jiao Tong University

As the Middle Kingdom’s Initiatives deepen to integrate the region’s economies through advancing infrastructure and tighter and broader exchanges, Together Expo’s role to engage the business and public communities worldwide culminates when the OceanTech Program (OT) was launched in May 2019.
Since its incorporation in 1992, Together has organized shows covering an array of sectors – wherever more sophisticated technology is needed to modernize China’s own industries. As China became the World Factory, energy and resources were vital to the country’s growth, Together consolidated its resources into the energy fields to stage up Asia’s premier China Coal & Mining Expo and China’s only national scale geology show. Both Together Flagships are hosted in the capital Beijing.
As China emerged as a global investor and cross-border venturer, Together captured the change, and has now entered into the ocean that connects all the continents of the world.

Data Capture & Analysis
Spearheaded by Zhejiang University’s Ocean College, OT Program is an International showcase of the latest know-how & live demos conceived and realized by China's Ocean Community. Zhejiang University is consistently ranked among China’s top three institutions.
Over 600 leading Ocean Science and Technology experts from universities, institutes, government agencies and companies meet in Zhoushan to attend the 4th China Ocean Technology Conference in 2019.
Talks from Sea Bird, EdgeTech and TDRI on their latest technology also made integral parts of OT 2019.
Oceanographers from around the nation were brought on board the Zijingang survey ship to view Laurel’s multi-beam survey demos in action, 30 minutes off site near the waters of Zhairuoshan Island Experimental Research Observatory. Zijingang also carried R2Sonic 2024 arrayed with two USVs -- 5.5m and 3m -- each with R2sonic equipment on board.
The campus also opened its newly built Manoeuvring Rotating Arm Tank for other cutting- edge demonstrations.
With simple signing ceremony, OT 2019 established the OT Talent Club, all OT exhibitors are automatically become members, the club aim to serve career development for China’s rising stars, supporting the next generation of marine professionals.
