ITBMS 2018 will include various sessions from Monday 11 to Wednesday 13 June 2018 corresponding to the topics defined on this page. Keynote addresses will be delivered before each session to set the underlying tone and summarize the core message. These speeches will be done by specialists from laboratories and international companies recognized for their expertise in the field.

A software training session from our sponsors (OKTAL-SE, THERMOANALYICS, DAVIS ENGINEERING) is also planned at the end of the event, on Thursday, 14 June 2018.

Due to the localization of the workshop, a special session will be devoted to optical signatures and related technologies in a maritime context.
