About Canadian Hydrographic Conference 2024

Following the successful US Hydro 2023, Canada now looks forward to welcoming international delegates to North America’s easternmost city, celebrated for its maritime heritage. The Canadian Hydrographic Association, in partnership with The Hydrographic Society of America, is hosting CHC2024.

When is CHC2024?

The Canadian Hydrographic Conference 2024 runs from May 27-30, 2024.

What is the CHC2024 theme?

The theme of CHC2024 is “Unveiling our Blue Planet.” This mirrors critical global initiatives like the United Nations Decade of Ocean Science for Sustainable Development and the Nippon Foundation/GEBCO Seabed 2030 Project. These projects emphasize the increasing need to understand our oceans amidst ongoing advancements within the hydrographic field.

The conference will focus on five key areas:

  • Understanding Climate Change
  • The Blue Economy
  • Partnering and Collaboration
  • Technological Advances
  • Education and Careers

CHC2024 will provide a platform for networking and displaying research, as well as showcasing expert demonstrations and presentations among hydrographic professionals.
