QUÉBEC WELCOMES THE
2010 CANADIAN HYDROGRAPHIC CONFERENCE

CHC Logo The Canadian Hydrographic Association in collaboration with the Canadian Hydrographic Service of Fisheries and Oceans Canada is enthusiastically getting ready to open the 36th edition of the Canadian Hydrographic Conference (CHC 2010). The conference, to be held at the Québec City Convention Centre from June 21 to 23, will bring together some 400 members of the international hydrographic community to explore the theme: Hydrography: Science, technology and people dedicated to the maritime world.

A comprehensive program

The program features some forty presentations, training workshops, a poster session, demonstrations aboard hydrographic vessels and a trade show. Conference themes aim to foster recognition of hydrography as a science that contributes to the safety and efficiency of Canada’s waterways, delineate underwater territorial boundaries and encourage the development of the Canadian technology industry :

  • Delineation of maritime boundaries (UNCLOS)
  • Business, careers and training
  • Ecosystemic hydrography
  • Data acquisition
  • Horizontal and vertical data
  • Modern navigation (e-navigation)
  • Data dissemination
  • Data processing
  • Chart production

Activities open to the public

Since this year’s official opening coincides with World Hydrography Day—established by the United Nations and under the umbrella of the International Hydrographic Organization—CHC 2010 will celebrate this world day by raising public awareness about the importance of hydrography. To this end, the public will be invited to visit the trade show at the Convention Centre and the Canadian Coast Guard hydrographic vessels moored in the Port of Québec’s Bassin Louise during the afternoon on Monday, June 21.
