The Society for Underwater Technology, The Hydrographic Society in Scotland and The International Marine Contractors Association are holding our popular annual joint seminar on 1st November 2017 in Aberdeen.

Much like other industries ours have experienced a tremendous rate of development in technological capability which has enhanced the efficiency of our operations. These include a significant decline in the cost of data processing and storage, miniaturisation of subsea sensors, increased computing capacity, quick, reliable, wireless communications, increased utilisation of subsea robotics and sophisticated data analytics and artificial intelligence. However, within a cost constrained environment stakeholders must drive development towards a value based solution.

Therefore, the topic of this seminar The Leading Edge of Value-Based Subsea Inspection aims at identifying these innovative methods, and sensors that are focused at providing solutions to the challenges of subsea inspection and surveillance.

Abstracts are now being accepted for consideration, which will be of interest to members of all three organizations. These should be approx. 150 words and be for a 20-minute presentation. The seminar is aiming to challenge and educate the attendees on innovative technologies for value based subsea inspection and monitoring.
