About DEMaT

What is DEMaT

The international Workshop Methods for the Development and Evaluation of Maritime Technologies – DEMaT has a 29-year history since the first workshop was held in Rostock in 1993. The basis of the DEMaT workshops is the voluntary community of mainly European and Asian scientists and engineers who are primarily active in different fields of ocean engineering like fishing technology, marine aquaculture, oceanographic engineering or naval architecture and navigation.
They all have two common goals :

  • The creation, scientific validation and dissemination of knowledge-based engineering methods as a prerequisite for sustainable development and innovation in maritime technologies
  • The early integration of young scientists into these global tasks.

Previous venues for DEMaT workshops were Izmir (Turkey), Rostock in Germany (several times), Busan (South Korea), Nara (Japan), Split (Croatia), Aberdeen (UK) and Sapporo (Japan).
