Top Research Topics at OCEANS Conference?

  • Marine engineering (14.88%)
  • Underwater (14.50%)
  • Acoustics (12.78%)

The conference generally zeroes in on subjects such as Marine engineering, Underwater, Acoustics, Remote sensing and Sonar. Most of the Marine engineering studies addressed also intersect with Remotely operated underwater vehicle. While it focused on Underwater, it was also able to explore topics like Real-time computing, Artificial intelligence and Computer vision.

The event investigates Artificial intelligence research which frequently intersects with Pattern recognition. The concepts on Acoustics presented in OCEANS Conference can also apply to other research fields, including Underwater acoustics, Electronic engineering and Signal. The studies on Remote sensing discussed can also contribute to research in the domains of Radar, Meteorology and Bathymetry.

The Meteorology study featured in the conference draws parallels with the field of Buoy. The majority of Sonar studies in the event are focused on the subject of Synthetic aperture sonar.

What are the most cited papers published at the conference?

  • The WHOI micro-modem: an acoustic communications and navigation system for multiple platforms (469 citations)
  • Remote sensing of sea state by radar (268 citations)
  • Low Complexity OFDM Detector for Underwater Acoustic Channels (263 citations)

Research areas of the most cited articles at OCEANS Conference:

The published articles mainly tackle studies in Underwater, Remotely operated underwater vehicle, Underwater acoustic communication, Marine engineering and Artificial intelligence. The most cited articles with studies in Underwater featured incorporate elements of Robot, Wireless sensor network, Real-time computing and Intervention AUV. The most cited publications focus on Remotely operated underwater vehicle but sometimes tackle the closely related topic of Control engineering which is concerned with Control theory.

What topics the last edition of the conference is best known for?

  • World War II
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Ecology

The previous edition focused in particular on these issues:

The objective of OCEANS Conference is to combine knowledge in the areas of Underwater, Remote sensing, Real-time computing, Marine engineering and Simulation. The conference holds forums on Underwater that merges themes from other disciplines such as Acoustics, 3D reconstruction, Computer vision, Artificial intelligence and Software. The event focuses on Remote sensing but the discussions also offer insight into other areas such as Seafloor spreading, Seabed and Observatory.

Topics in Real-time computing explored in the conference were investigated in conjunction with research in Field (computer science), Environmental monitoring, Control (management), The Internet and Robot. The event explores issues in Marine engineering which can be linked to other research areas like Dead reckoning, Ultra-short baseline, Navigation system and Filter (signal processing). The Simulation research presented in OCEANS Conference also delves into studies in intersecting subjects like

  • Software deployment which connect with Underwater acoustic communication, Throughput, Irradiance, Optical communication and Transmitter,
  • Systems engineering, which have a strong connection to Mission analysis, Natural language and Habitat destruction..

The most cited articles from the last conference are:

  • Long lasting underwater wireless sensors network for water quality monitoring in fish farms (13 citations)
  • On field experience on underwater acoustic localization through USBL modems (8 citations)
  • Collision probability assessment between surface ships considering maneuver intentions (6 citations)

Publication chance based on affiliation

The publication chance index shows the ratio of articles published by the best research institutions at the conference edition to all articles published within that conference. The best research institutions were selected based on the largest number of articles published during all editions of the conference.

The chart below presents the percentage ratio of articles from top institutions (based on their ranking of total papers).Top affiliations were grouped by their rank into the following tiers: top 1-10, top 11-20, top 21-50, and top 51+. Only articles with a recognized affiliation are considered.


During the most recent 2017 edition, 9.30% of publications had an unrecognized affiliation. Out of the publications with recognized affiliations, 5.13% were posted by at least one author from the top 10 institutions publishing at the conference. Another 10.26% included authors affiliated with research institutions from the top 11-20 affiliations. Institutions from the 21-50 range included 28.21% of all publications and 56.41% were from other institutions.

Returning Authors Index

A very common phenomenon observed among researchers publishing scientific articles is the intentional selection of conferences they have already attended in the past. In particular, it is worth analyzing the case when the authors participate in the same conference from year to year.

The Returning Authors Index presented below illustrates the ratio of authors who participated in both a given as well as the previous edition of the conference in relation to all participants in a given year.


Returning Institution Index

The graph below shows the Returning Institution Index, illustrating the ratio of institutions that participated in both a given and the previous edition of the conference in relation to all affiliations present in a given year.


The experience to innovation index

Our experience to innovation index was created to show a cross-section of the experience level of authors publishing at a conference. The index includes the authors publishing at the last edition of a conference, grouped by total number of publications throughout their academic career (P) and the total number of citations of these publications ever received (C).

The group intervals were selected empirically to best show the diversity of the authors' experiences, their labels were selected as a convenience, not as judgment. The authors were divided into the following groups:

  • Novice - P < 5 or C < 25 (the number of publications less than 5 or the number of citations less than 25),
  • Competent - P < 10 or C < 100 (the number of publications less than 10 or the number of citations less than 100),
  • Experienced - P < 25 or C < 625 (the number of publications less than 25 or the number of citations less than 625),
  • Master - P < 50 or C < 2500 (the number of publications less than 50 or the number of citations less than 2500),
  • Star - P ≥ 50 and C ≥ 2500 (both the number of publications greater than 50 and the number of citations greater than 2500).


The chart below illustrates experience levels of first authors in cases of publications with multiple authors.
