Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The 2020 IMEKO TC-19 International Workshop on Metrology for the Sea ( will be held in Naples, Italy, 5–7 October 2020.

MetroSea aims to gather people who work in developing instrumentation and measurement methods for the sea. Particular attention is paid to new technology for sea environment monitoring, metrology-assisted production in the sea industry, ship component measurement, sensors and associated signal conditioning for the sea, and calibration methods for electronic testing and measurement for marine applications.


  • Electronic instrumentation for the sea;
  • Automatic test equipment for the sea;
  • Sensors and sensor sensing systems for sea applications;
  • Wireless sensor networks for marine applications;
  • Monitoring systems for the sea;
  • Metrology for navigation and precise positioning;
  • Measurements for submarine obstacle detection;
  • Underwater vehicles for exploration;
  • Pollution detection for reclamation;
  • Submarine infrastructure maintenance and reliability;
  • Signal and image processing;
  • Metrology and quality assurance for submarine soldering;
  • Weather forecasting and nowcasting for maritime navigation;
  • Measures for marine biology;
  • Measures for marine geology;
  • Measures for Oceanography.

Authors of papers related to sensors presented at the workshop are invited to submit extended versions of their work to this Special Issue for publication.
