Topics of interest


Ocean-Atmosphere Dynamics

The session discusses ongoing issue related to oceanographic or atmospheric operational system, forecasting and prediction with data assimilation, and modeling analysis result related to ocean or atmosphere  dynamics.

Marine Hazard and Coastal Degradation

Research theme invites interdisciplinary research topics targeting risk reduction caused by natural hazards, including disaster management.

Marine Resources, Conservation and ICZM

Strengthening resilience, mitigation, and adaptation of environment and biodiversity to fight against natural and anthropogenic stresses and this covers a discussion on the impact of marine pollutant to coastal ecosystem and conservation.

Provides a platform to exchange knowledge about the marine ecosystem and development of aquatic food resources through sustainable fisheries and aquaculture, particularly on the role of aquatic animal health to ensure safe supply of seafood.

Marine Geodesy and Satellite Oceanography 

Assessment to future application of earth system science for broad range of potential users. This includes update to the advancement of geodetic observations, availability of the-state-of-the-art high-resolution digital topography, ongoing improvement of dating methods.

Ocean Engineering and Technology

This session presents a collection of studies related to ocean exploration via modern technology, application of oceanographic acoustic, acoustic propagation and scattering: modelling and measurement.


Participants may select the type of presentations which consist of (1) Oral and (2) Poster through flash presentations. The committee will make a final judgement by considering the contribution and breakthrough mentioned in abstract.

Oral Presentation

Setting of MSAT 2019 mini-symposium is quite unique. The chairs in each mini-symposium consist of two-invited well-known scientists who will deliver 25 mins presentations and 5 mins discussions. Each slot of a mini-symposium will be two hours long, 10 minutes for each presentation, and additional 5 minutes for discussion. Therefore, four to six selected oral presentations will be given in each mini-symposium per slot.

Flash Presentation

Poster presenters are necessary to effectively communicate their results  to all audiences. The MSAT 2019 provides friendly and interactive way for poster presenters to announce main findings to others.  Delivered in two-minute presentation, flash presentation will be one of sessions that won’t be missed by MSAT 2019 participants!
