Dear visitor,

Hydro17 will be the 25th edition of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies' Hydrographic Conferences. Our objective is traditionally connection within the hydrographic community. This is to stimulate business & innovation and realisation of creative technical solutions - for survey challenges.

Hydro17's theme 'Connecting 4D Future' aims to stretch our connection in space & time to disciplines relevant for Hydrography. As everything is connected on Mother Earth, the 'Earth System Science' approach might help us to look at our challenges from a new perspective.

Hopefully this approach will give us new valuable insights, creative ideas and inspiration on how to cope with present hydrographic challenges and prepare us for a more sustainable future.

So regardless your passion, either inshore or offshore hydrography, oceanography, dredging, marine biology, fishery, geodesy, earth science, aeropspace technology, International Law of the Sea etc. You are all invited to connect and share your views and knowledge on how to keep exploring Mother Earth respectfully & succesfully 4 quality & safety!

Register and feel welcome to Hydro17.

Kind regards,
Floor PJ de Haan
