Vessels visiting Hydro12

The Hydro12 organising committee already has created awareness of the possibility to use survey vessels and launches nearby the SS Rotterdam and succeeded! A total of seven vessels have been confirmed to join the delegates and companies during the conference. They give the opportunity to see the current techniques.

The new Flemish research vessel Hondius is worth taking your time to get yourself familiar with the techniques that are available at this moment. Also various companies and governmental organisations (like the Port of Rotterdam) provide the opportunity to experience what these techniques can do for the hydrographic professional. Don’t hesitate to request a demo!

See the overview of visiting vessels.

Programme in detail available

The programme in detail of Hydro12 has been created. It now is available as an Excel file to have an impression of the speakers and sessions more in depth to make you planning. The presentations are listed with the abstracts of the papers, so you can judge for yourself the content and authors you like to know more about.

Bear in mind the programme may be subject to change.

We like to see you at Hydro12, taking place from 13 to 15 November 2012 aboard the SS Rotterdam in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. Aside from a conference, there is a trade show with companies demonstrating and showing new developments on the market and in the profession. Make sure to register in time!


Tragic Loss: Volker Böder

On 31 August 2012, the coauthor of two Hydro12-papers, Dr Volker Böder, professor at the Hafencity Universität Hamburg, died following an accident during surveying work on the Rhine near Basel. Hydro12 acknowledges the large contribution that Volker has made to Hydro2010, a conference that we frequently use as an example of a successful Hydro-conference. We regret this loss for the hydrographic profession and send sympathy to his colleagues, friends and family.

Hydro12 Opening Address by Robert Ward

The Hydro12  opening address will be given by Robert Ward, currently director and president-elect of the IHO. He already has expressed his experience with the theme ‘Taking Care of the Sea’. The opening address is scheduled at the start of the conference, on Tuesday 13 November 2012 on board the permanently moored cruise vessel SS Rotterdam in Rotterdam.

In addition to the opening address, four interesting keynote speakers from various backgrounds will share their experience and vision during the conference days. The conference includes over 50 oral presentations and added poster presentations, as well as a trade show where companies are exhibiting their new developments. More than 300 hydrographic professionals are expected to attend.

Hydro12 is to take place from 13 to 15 November 2012 in Rotterdam. On Monday 12 November, the event starts with an informal Ice-breaker party. Registration is open and hotel accommodation on board is arranged at a discounted price. Also an attractive flight arrangement has been made in addition to the convenient links to Rotterdam by road, boat, train and air travel.

Is your Company on the Trade Show?

Aside of the conference Hydro12, the organisation is facilitating companies to get in touch with hydrographic surveyors and related professionals, making them familiar with the recent developments in technology, software and services.  Many companies already are represented with a booth (which we have called the singlebeam package) on the trade show. This means that if your company aims to join the exhibition, action is required! There are more options to communicate with the delegates during the conference Hydro12. Like to know more? Just contact the sponsoring team for all available options!

The organisation of Hydro12 has opened the registration in the website. So you can make sure to be included in the event taking place from 13 to 15 November 2012 on board of the SS Rotterdam.  Delegates registering before 1 July 2012 benefit from the early bird fee, saving 60 euros.
