Hydro4 Call for Papers - 11/11/2003


The Hydrographic Society, presently devolving into the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IHFS), is to hold its 14th biennial international symposium in Galway, Ireland, from 2nd-4th November 2004. The proceedings, which will also include a major exhibition of equipment and services, workshops, field demonstrations and anticipated visits by specialist survey vessels, are being co-sponsored by several leading international survey and maritime organisations. The main theme of the Hydro4 symposium is Diversity, with the aim of providing a forum for addressing the use of hydrographic expertise for non-traditional survey applications in new seagoing operations, whilst conversely exploring potential benefits for exploiting non-traditional survey techniques within the hydrographic profession itself. Related technical issues and topics will include Bathymetry, Coastal Zone Management & Protection, Data Acquisition & Management, Electronic Charting, GIS and Positioning. Three-hundred-word English-language abstracts of proposed papers in disk or email, Word 2000 format, are required by 31st March 2004. They should be submitted to the Symposium organising committee (tel: +44 (0) 1752 843461, fax: +44 (0) 1752 848267).
