Hydro17 in The Netherlands again – Call for Papers

Conference venue: SS Rotterdam

Conference venue: SS Rotterdam

The next Hydro conference is arriving: Hydro17. The Hydrographic Society Benelux (HSB) invites you on behalf of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS) to contribute to the conference Hydro17 with a conference paper. The conference will be held on board of the steam ship “De Rotterdam” between 14 and 16 November 2017. SS Rotterdam is permanently moored in the port of Rotterdam, The Netherlands.


Hydro17 focuses on strengthening the connection within the Hydrographic world and seeking connection with adjacent disciplines. Therefore, ‘Connection’ will be a common theme throughout the conference. The HSB will also be celebrating our 25th anniversary of Hydro conferences!

This call is open to abstracts addressing a hydrographic theme.

Abstract Contributions

Contributions for Hydro17 from young people (including students) and developing countries are especially encouraged. Contributions that are very commercial in nature, rather than innovative, will not be accepted.

  • Abstracts can be submitted to
  • Authors that have submitted a successful abstract will be notified before 30 April 2017.
  • Guidelines for submitting the full conference paper and presentation material will be sent with the notification and made available on
  • During the conference, the abstracts will be available in the conference book.

More information and registration is available on the conference website.

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!

The organisers have chosen a remarkable venue: the SS Rotterdam – a cruiseliner which is permanently moored in Rotterdam. The vessel also is the conference hotel with rooms that can be booked as well for an attractive rate. Can you imagine the Icebreaker party with a view over the teak decks outside? And the conference dinner taking place in one of the restaurants – a real Captain’s Dinner will surprise you!

All information is on the website, so please register and take the discounted fee!

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!

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.

The content committee already received abstracts but a couple of authors have requested to have slightly more time to prepare.
