Welcome to Hydro 2016


Hydro 2016 is now over. Many of the Presentations given at the conference can be downloaded below and the papers can be accessed by clicking on the link.

Hydro 2016, the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies' 24th Hydro conference and exhibition, will take place in Rostock-Warnemünde from 8-10th November 2016. Many will have good memories of Hydro 2010 which was held at the same venue.

Hydro 2016 is being organised by the German Hydrographic Society (DHyG) and the organising committee is almost identical to the one for 2010.

As with all Hydro conferences, Hydro 2016 will feature a three-day conference with leading experts in hydrography, an exhibition of international manufacturers and service providers, scope for on-site practical/boat demos, workshops and application/product training and a full social programme.

The conference programme features a total of 54 presentations in the conference auditorium, together with a range of optional workshops, demonstrations and technical visits. The presentations are arranged in one keynote and fourteen themed sessions - eight of which are offered in four parallel time slots.

Delegate registration is now open, with discounted rates offered to members of all IFHS-member societies and concessions available for students and the retired. An additional Early Bird discount applies to full member/non-member 3-day registrations paid for by 31st July.

All delegate fees include tea/coffee, lunch and access to the Conference, Exhibition, Ice-Breaker and Flying Buffet receptions, plus many user seminars, on-water equipment demonstrations and technical visits.

All delegates must complete the online registration form and bookings will only be confirmed on receipt of full payment.
