The deep-sea is the largest ecosystem on earth covering 60% of the planet’s surface. However, our fundamental knowledge of this ecosystem has been limited by the logistical challenges of conducting research in this environment. This meeting explored how recent developments in autonomous and robotic technologies could bring about a step-change in deep-sea research, ultimately revolutionising understanding of global biodiversity.
The schedule of talks and speaker biographies are available below. Recorded audio of the presentations will be available on this page soon.
