Hydro18 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. It 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.
