    The AHS/SUT Autonomous Underwater Technology (AUT) Conference is celebrating its tenth occurrence. The conference has brought to the industry, actionable information on the advances in AUT technology and applications along with gaining an insight to where the technology is developing. Technological advancements have translated to increases in AUT utilisation, reliability and the function across the oil and gas, renewable energy, environmental, research and defence industries, to name a few.

    The Australasian region has experienced a significant increase in underwater oil and gas infrastructure associated with LNG field development. This increase in subsea infrastructure coupled with AUT’s becoming more mainstream has created downstream applications in additional to the more traditional upstream applications such as exploration and export pipeline route development. These include environmental monitoring, pipeline and infrastructure inspections and data harvesting.

    To acknowledge these changes this year the AHS/SUT conference organising committee aims to demonstrate these new applications and different technologies along with supporting the ongoing experiences of the traditional acquisition of underwater data.

    After 9 prior events, this conference continues to be one of the most important gold standard networking opportunities in this field, allowing contact between pipeline engineers, subsea asset managers, geophysicists, environmental scientists, hydrographic surveyors, defence organisations, oil & gas field development specialists, government bodies, equipment manufacturers, academic & research bodies, oceanographers, survey companies and port & security operators.

    NZCS Annual Conference 15-17 November 2017

    Tauranga Moana

    “Changing Coasts | Papaki kau ana nga tai o Mauao”

    The NZCS 2017 Conference is your annual opportunity to share knowledge across a range of coastal management topics and meet with peers from around NZ.  The 2017 Conference theme Changing Coasts is supported by a local saying Papaki kau ana nga tai o Mauao, meaning the waves beat continuously against the rocky cliffs of Mauao (Mount Maunganui).   This theme reflects the constant change of our coasts through coastal processes, biodiversity, climate, development and also geological processes as recently experienced in Kaikoura.

    The Conference venue at Trinity Wharf connects you to the Tauranga Harbour and offers accommodation options close to the city’s waterfront.  Field trip options will focus on exploring the natural environment and coastal issues of one of NZ’s favourite beach towns - Mount Maunganui.

    We encourage students to attend and share your latest research.  The NZCS 2017 Conference will host the popular student breakfast to provide a unique opportunity to chat openly with a group of coastal professionals.

    Keep a look out here for registrations and call for abstracts links to be opened shortly. Refer to the Presentation topics below to get thinking about how sharing your work could benefit others:

    • Adaption to coastal change
    • Estuaries and harbours and their management
    • Balancing coastal pressures while protecting natural resources
    • Management across coastal and policy boundaries
    • Coastal hazards and risk
    • Communities and our coast.
