Oregon State University and NOAA are proud to present the 2014 INMARTECH meeting at Oregon State University and the NOAA Pacific Marine Operations Center.

The 9th International Marine Technician, INMARTECH 2014, Symposium will be held at Oregon State University (OSU) in Corvallis, Oregon on November 18-21, 2014. INMARTECH symposia were initiated with the purpose of providing a forum for marine technicians to meet and exchange knowledge and experiences, thereby aiming to improve equipment performance, deployment, and operational techniques during scientific cruises on research vessels.

OSU’s Corvallis main campus covers 400-acres and is situated 90 miles south of Portland, OR, and an hour from the Pacific Coast. Learn more about OSU.
