Another great episode of learning, lecturing and socializing at BtS is behind us. You probably wonder how it was at Breaking the Surface 2017? In short, our workshop gathered more than 190 participants from 24 countries in 7 days programme. 39 experts from various maritime fields presented their work and knowledge while students had opportunity to take part in 5 tutorials. We met old friends and established new friendships, learned about many interesting projects and expanded our horizons. It was a marvelous week for all of us.
