Underwater Minerals Conference

Underwater Minerals Conference

Since 1970 the Underwater Minerals Conference has provided a nexus linking academic, industrial, and governmental professionals working in all disciplines related to marine minerals and exploration. In doing so the UMC has built a unique, international network of participants for over half a century.

The Conference is more than an annual forum; it has, through the years, fostered cooperation, assistance and understanding among those who compose the marine minerals community. It has been the catalyst for forming the International Marine Minerals Society (IMMS, incorporated in 1987) and for many joint ventures, business deals, research grants, service contracts and student stipends. Such rewards, coupled with the enthusiasm of its participants, have ensured the continuing success of this annual Conference.

In 2022, the UMC will be hosted in St. Petersburg, Florida by IMMS from 2 to 7 October. We commemorate that it will be the 50th Conference and will include some retrospective presentations and exhibitions that look back at the events and personalities who have built our rich history. Please join us for this milestone event.
