Remote Hydrography | Call for Abstracts reissued

24 September 2019

Following the rescheduling of the two-day Remote Hydrography conference at the National Oceanography Centre, Southampton to the 6-7th May 2020, The Hydrographic Society UK has re-issued the Call for Abstracts.

Submissions may address any subject relating to the conference theme. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to, novel applications of autonomous and unmanned aerial, surface and underwater survey platforms; Satellite-Derived Bathymetry (SDB); Crowdsourced Bathymetry (CSB); use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) in data gathering, analysis and visualisation; and use of Forward Looking Sonar (FLS) for real-time data gathering and enhancing navigational safety.

Also relevant would be remote command and support services for offshore survey operations; use of collaborative fleets or swarms of autonomous systems; mitigation of increased security risks to marine assets and data posed by increased autonomy; and initiatives such the Nippon Foundation-GEBCO Seabed 2030 project, UK's Overseas Territories Seabed Mapping Programme and LINZ Hydrographic Risk Assessment model developed for the SW Pacific SIDS.

Presentations focussing on innovation or application and those featuring case studies will be of particular interest to the target audience.

All abstracts must be submitted to by 31 December 2019.

Potential speakers who have previously submitted an abstract do not need to do so again, unless they wish to take the opportunity to update it.
