Seaforth and Reformar exhibit at the Canadian Hydrographic Conference 2010

Seaforth partnered with Reformar for an exhibit at this year’s Hydrographic Conference in Quebec City.

From the Conference description:

The event is being organized by the Canadian Hydrographic Association with the participation of Fisheries and Oceans Canada’s Canadian Hydrographic Service. The conference will deal with the latest developments in hydrography, marine cartography and electronic navigation.

The event gives attendees the opportunity to take stock of scientific and technological developments in the hydrography field through a comprehensive program composed of presentations, training workshops, a poster session and demonstrations aboard hydrographic vessels, the organizers said. To add to the conference experience, there will also be an entertaining social program for participants and the people accompanying them, they continued.

The conference will be held at the Quebec City Convention Centre and will bring together about 400 members of the international hydrographic community.

Technical Program:

The technical sessions will deal with the delimitation of the international border (U.N. Convention on the Law of the Sea); electronic navigation; chart production; the acquisition, processing and distribution of hydrographic data; and ecosystemic hydrography. At the end of each technical session, there will be a plenary session so participants can discuss the topics covered and further absorb the information. There will also be a simultaneous translation service to ensure that all attendees will be able to comprehend the presentations during the technical sessions, conference organizers said.”

World Hydrography Day:

June 21, the official opening day of the conference, will coincide with World Hydrography Day, established by the United Nations and the International Hydrographic Organization. In recognition of this day and to raise public awareness about the importance of hydrography, the conference will be open to the public free of charge during the day, and visitors will be able to board a hydrographic launch, conference organizers said.

To close the day, participants can enjoy a banquet cruise on board the Louis-Jolliet, a reputed floating restaurant on the majestic St. Lawrence River, the organizers continued.”
