Remote Hydrography conference

Remote Hydrography | Innovation & Application
Wednesday 6th - Thursday 7th May 2020

National Oceanography Centre, Southampton

Reschedulding of this event 
This conference was originally due to take place on 30th-31st October 2019. Unfortunately, owing to circumstances beyond our control, we have taken the difficult decision to reschedule it and have confirmed the revised dates as 6-7th May 2020. The venue remains the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton.

We will be reissuing the Call for Abstracts for the revised dates very shortly, with a new deadline of 31st December 2019 and the programme to be confirmed in February. Potential speakers who have already submitted an abstract do not need to resubmit, unless they wish to take this opportunity to update it.

With the obvious exception of the dates, all arrangements for exhibitors and sponsors remain unchanged. However, subject to the approval of the relevant authorities, the longer days and milder weather which May will hopefully bring, may now also offer limited opportunities for demonstrations in the adjacent dock. Please contact if you would like to explore this further.

We apologise for this late change and any concern or inconvenience which may have resulted. However, we very much hope that you will still be able to join us in May. In the meantime, we will be using the unexpected additional time, between now and then, to ensure the event is a huge success for all involved.


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 programme of keynote speakers, presentations and panel-led discussion forums, this two-day conference, and small 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, population the white spaces on charts, improvement of navigational safety and implementation of e-Navigation and autonomous shipping.
