Still fueled by the overwhelming attendance and success from the 2017 meeting in Vancouver, Canada, the Western Dredging Association (WEDA) is ready to begin planning for its 2018 Dredging Summit and Expo.
The conference will be held at the Hilton Norfolk The Main Hotel in Norfolk, Virginia from June 25-28, 2018.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Navigating the Future in Dredging“, which will focus on dredging presentations with an emphasis on research, technology development, and pilot-scale projects within academia, government, and industry.
“We are pleased to make the Call for Papers for the technical sessions at the 2018 Dredging Summit and Expo, the premiere venue to discuss the science, engineering and practice of dredging. Interested authors are invited to submit one-page abstracts (less than 400 words along with a descriptive title and author(s) contact information),” WEDA said.
The deadline to submit abstracts is January 15, 2018.
WEDA also added that the Technical Papers Committee will review all abstracts and notify authors of acceptance and provide final manuscript instructions for production of the Dredging Summit & Expo ’18 proceedings.
