Welcome to the 6th International Conference on Underwater System Technology: Theory and Applications (USYS16) 
13th ¨C 14th, December 2016, Penang, Malaysia
The conference USYS16 will be held in the scenic island of Penang during 13th ¨C 14th December 2016. This conference aims to provide a platform for researchers, scientists, engineers, academicians, as well as industrial professionals from all over the world to share, discuss and disseminate their current R & D activities and experiences related to the field of underwater system technology, including relevant theories as well as applications.

USYS¡¯16 focuses on exploring new technology and approach to utilize the vast resources of the oceans, developing new engineering strategies for the preservation of the oceans eco-system, as well as providing a specialized forum for discussing the future of underwater system technology.
