Remote Hydrography Conference and Exhibition


Remote Hydrography Conference and Exhibition moved to Dublin – February 2022 

The Hydrographic Society UK first began preparations for a conference focused on Remote Hydrography back in late 2019. Due to Covid, we have already been forced to delay the event more than once during 2020 and were planning for an exciting venue in Cork, Ireland for this November.  However, we have now been informed by the venue that due to Covid-19 it will no longer be possible to run the event there this year.  Once again, we are therefore forced to delay and adjust the plan…



We are now pleased to announce that we have secured the excellent venue of Dublin Castle, right in the centre of Ireland’s capital city, for the 22nd to 24th February 2022Remote Hydrography will be a three-day conference and exhibition focussed on developments in uncrewed platforms, associated sensors and software as well as marine remote sensing. We are kindly supported by our partners the Geological Survey Ireland, Marine Institute, INFOMAR and Fáilte Ireland. INFOMAR will also run their annual seminar on Monday 21st February at the same venue so that the two events can complement each other.

We hope you are able to adjust your schedules to accommodate, and once again we apologise for the further changes.  However, we are sure you understand that we can only play the cards we are dealt!

Sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities will be released in the coming months.  For further information please contact us:

So, please put the week commencing 21st of February in your diaries and keep an eye on Remote Hydrography Conference & Exhibition - The Hydrographic Society UK ( for further updates.  We look forward to seeing you there!

About this event

Hydrographic surveying, and the roles of its practitioners, are in the midst of a paradigm shift.  The development and adoption of disruptive technologies, techniques and solutions are increasing survey capacity, capabilities and productivity like never before, whilst simultaneously reducing the risks and costs involved.

Autonomous and unmanned aerial, surface and underwater survey platforms, remote survey command and support services, and techniques such as Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB), Crowdsourced Bathymetry (CSB), Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and Forward Looking Sonar (FLS) are revolutionising hydrographic data collection, processing, analysis and presentation.

Would you like to learn more about these new disruptive technologies?

Would you like to discover how to adopt and adapt to these new processes and technologies?

Would you like an insight into how these concepts could add value to your business?

Through an inspiring program of keynote speakers, presentations and panel-led discussion forums, this three-day conference, and accompanying exhibition, will focus on the latest innovations, applications and deployments in remote and automated hydrography.  It will consider how these tools are providing novel approaches, efficiencies and benefits to the commercial survey industry, as well as enhancing the exploration and mapping of the world's seafloor, populating the white spaces on charts, improvement of navigational safety and implementation of e-Navigation and autonomous shipping.
