Huge Response to Call for Abstracts

The fourth specialty conference on dredging and dredged material disposal, Dredging 2012, will be held in San Diego, California, USA from October 22—25, 2012. Although it has been almost 10 years since the last meeting of this international forum, it was obvious that there is overwhelming interest in the topics! The conference organizing committee has received a huge response to its Call for Abstracts, and they are now starting their review process. We hope to have a preliminary program and registration details posted in March.

The theme of this year’s conference is 40 Years of Dredging and Environmental Innovation. The conference will bring together professionals and practitioners from developed and developing areas of the world to discuss the new topics and “debates” that have emerged over the last decade, as well as future issues. Dredging 2012 is a four-day technical specialty conference organized by PIANC USA and the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute of American Society of Civil Engineers (COPRI ASCE).
