Themed with "Marine Science and the Future", this forum set up four branch venues: intelligent equipment and the ocean, information science and the ocean, environment & chemical industry and the ocean, life medicine and the ocean; and also a total of 15 topics and 26 academic reports. Academician Jingshan Jiang, Academician Jianquan Yao (Chinese Academy of Sciences), Prof. Feng Gao (Shanghai Jiao Tong University), and Dr. Junchao Cheng (CSIC System Engineering Research Institute), delivered keynote speeches for the general assembly which was hosted YSU Vice President Xiangdong Kong. Starting from different detection requirements from the surface to the bottom, Jingshan Jiang gave a comprehensive summary of the theories and methods of ocean remote sensing and imaging, and emphatically introduced the research progress and achievements of China microwave remote sensing information transmission and processing and other aspects of the application. Jianquan Yao explained the significance of the space - sky - earth - sea integration network architecture and the construction of wisdom marine Internet to young researchers with vivid and sincere words. He also suggested that Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei collaboratively implement instructions of General Secretary Xi, which were "caring for the ocean, understanding the ocean, managing the ocean” , and make a difference in the field of ocean engineering. Feng Gao introduced the principle and equipment of composite electricity generation by using integrated sea wave and wind with high power, and suggested that young scientists should face the demand and be creative in scientific research. Junchao Cheng, based on the national marine development strategy, introduced in detail the background, demand, value, system framework and the progress of the "wisdom ocean" project.In the four branch venues, young scientists from Beijing, Tianjin and Hebei discussed the latest research progress, including: "marine engineering intelligent equipment and equipment intelligence", "the latest technology of underwater detection and communication", "marine environment, chemical industry and ecological management", and "deep sea biology and marine medicine".
