The theme of the conference will focus on Developing the Blue Economy.

In our efforts to sustain our oceans, hydrography will play a significant role through the development of advanced technology that allows forward thinking organizations to benefit from the blue economy.
CARIS 2014 will be an exceptional event, which will include an in-depth technical program. During the conference delegates will benefit from high calibre industry presentations, specialized user group meetings, boot camps designed for new users, an academic poster session, an exhibition featuring key industry manufacturers and service providers and one-on-one product demonstrations. In addition, there will be a number of networking events giving delegates a prime opportunity to mingle with other delegates and make new relationships.

We are confident our users will really enjoy CARIS 2014 and will take away new knowledge and shared experiences.”
