    HYDRO18 Conference and Trade Exhibition

    'The Climate for Change - Hydrography in the 21st Century' 

    Call for Abstracts & Papers and Registration Now Open

    The Australasian Hydrographic Society is presenting the HYDRO18 Conference and Trade Exhibition (HYDRO18) at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf, Pyrmont, Sydney Australia during 30 October - 2 November 2018. 

    The Organising Committee invites prospective participants to submit abstracts and papers. Selected presenters will be encouraged to prepare and provide a full conference paper - these papers will be considered for inclusion in the Conference Proceedings. Papers are sought to reflect the conference theme and original papers will be selected on merit. Those selected for inclusion in the program will best reflect the theme and sub-themes, plus allow an overall balance to the final program.

    All presenting authors must be registrants at the Conference. Please register your interest in providing a conference paper and/or presentation with Conference Solutions as soon as possible. Abstracts complying with the guidelines must be submitted to Conference Solutions by email by Friday 29 June 2018.

    The HYDRO18 website provide a list of suggested topics within the conference theme and sub-themes that authors may wish to present. All authors are expected to provide permission for their papers and presentations to be published in the HYDRO18 Proceedings, which will be available in either hard or soft copy. It is not intended to offer refereeing of any paper, however papers will be checked for relevance and appropriateness. Authors will be free to submit their paper to appropriate journals for refereed publication.

    HYDRO18, will have a wide international and regional reach and will allow delegates and the hydrographic profession to consider how best to future utilise the science of hydrography to adapt to climate change, resource sustainability and renewable energy requirements. Hydrography is the key to facing the rising tide of climate change, knowing our oceans and understanding our future. This focus on the utilisation of hydrography to meet the challenges and opportunities arising from climate change and sea level rise will be of wide-ranging interest to those companies and organisations working within the maritime world and to the public.

    The HYDRO18 organisers are seeking to bring together international and regional speakers and delegates from varying maritime fields including: specialist hydrographic streams, maritime transport, oceanography, offshore exploration, environmental science, maritime heritage, defence, tourism, coastal development, ports & harbours and government. Full details of the conference and trade exhibition, plus information about papers, sponsorship opportunities and trade exhibition applications can be found on the HYDRO18 website:

    The Australasian Hydrographic Society (AHS) is hosting the HYDRO18 Conference and Trade Exhibition (HYDRO18) being held at Doltone House, Jones Bay Wharf, Pyrmont in Sydney, Australia during 30 October – 2 November 2018.

    The Conference and Exhibition, with its theme of ‘The Climate for Change – Hydrography in the 21st Century’ will allow delegates and the hydrographic profession to consider how best to future utilise the science of hydrography to adapt to climate change, resource sustainability and renewable energy requirements. Hydrography is the key to facing the rising tide of climate change, knowing our oceans and understanding our future.

    The Society is hosting this conference to highlight the challenges and opportunities related to climate change for the world through hydrography. The Conference will provide interest whether as a member of the hydrographic industry, policy maker, academic, or layman.

    The Society will bring together speakers from varying maritime fields including all of the specialist hydrographic streams, maritime transport, oceanography, offshore exploration, environmental science, maritime heritage, defence, tourism, coastal development, ports and harbours, and government. HYDRO18 will also provide a forum to discuss aspects of the opportunities and challenges facing hydrography. A very large proportion of trade is carried by maritime transport and, along with increasing sea levels, our lives will be affected in some way or another. This international symposium seeks to gain insight into these effects and the opportunities that may arise, as well as provide a platform to show how currently important hydrography and the ‘Blue Economy’ is globally.

    Affiliated with the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies, the AHS is an encompassing learned body administratively comprising of four distinct regions of East Australia, West Australia, New Zealand, and SW Pacific, plus a historical Division - Australia on the Map. The Society provides a South West Pacific and South East Asian regional focus for those interested in hydrography and related sciences.

    The Australasian Hydrographic Society welcomes hydrographic and related professionals plus anyone interested in our changing world to the HYDRO18 and Trade Exhibition. Further details of the event will be posted on the HYDRO18 website (www.hydro18.ahs.asn.au) and Society’s website ( www.ahs.asn.au) during the next few months.

    This six-day, 36-lecture course is designed to provide a theoretical and practical background in marine swath survey technology and techniques for hydrographic surveys, continental shelf boundary delimitation, offshore engineering, harbour dredging, fisheries habitat, route survey and scientific research, and provides overviews of: 

    • the technology and problems associated with shallow water multibeam surveys,
    • processing and visualization techniques designed to address the complexities of swath mapping, 
    • constraints on using swath bathymetry to produce highest quality data.
