Inviting abstracts for CEDA Dredging Days 2015: Innovative dredging solutions for ports

2 September 2014

2014 Robert Merlo // 2014-roberto_merlo.jpg (480 K)CEDA Dredging Days 2015 will be 5-6 November 2015, at Ahoy Rotterdam, the Netherlands, and will be held in conjunction with Europort 2015. The conference and exhibition will address innovative dredging solutions for ports and CEDA are inviting abstract submissions on the theme from experts in the field.

Dredging and the management of sediments are key elements in the sustainable development and operation of most ports. There is a growing call for them to become greener, more environmentally aware, and more responsible with regard to operations. The need for more sustainable processes has led to the event's focus on innovative dredging solutions for ports and it will present the latest technical and scientific developments. In addition, CEDA Dredging Days 2015 will cover best practices, relating to maintenance and capital dredging in ports and access channels, and the management of sediments including the sediment balance of the broader port environment.

Submissions deadline 7 January 2015
Abstract submissions for the conference are invited from experts working in port authorities, institutions, universities, engineering consultants, government agencies, dredging contractors and manufacturers. The Technical Papers and Programme Committee is particularly interested in papers presenting novel solutions and approaches leading to and/or demonstrating win-win solutions that meet the objectives of the port developer/operator and environmental stakeholders. All papers will be peer-reviewed and published in the conference proceedings. CEDA Dredging Days 2015 will include a special Academic Session designed to give young dredging professionals the opportunity to present papers to the conference on any dredging subject.
