The hydrographic conference Hydro12 is getting closer. The presentations programme is ready, as the trade show is nearly fully booked (however there are a couple of places left) and the partner programme is there if your partner like to join you but prefers to see the countryside. The authors are working on the final versions of the papers they will present. Will you be there? Register before 1 July 2012 to save 60 euros early bird discount!

Keynote Speakers for Hydro12

The conference Hydro12 is taking shape. The organisers have attracted three keynote speakers who are to emphasise the theme: Taking Care of the Sea.

The experts are Peter Harris (Australia), involved in the GeoHab programme; Steve Shipman MBE, who was vice-president for the IHB and before, involved in the joint IHO / FIG / ICA Advisory Board on Standards of Competence for Hydrographic Surveyors and Nautical Cartographers; and Terje Torsnes of Geological Survey of Norway. His current area of expertise is within marine geology, with emphasis on seabed sediments and morphology, links between geology and biology within an ecosystem framework, and applied aspects for ocean management.
