8th Workshop "Seabed Acoustics" 2017
Since 2001 Innomar has been hosting the workshop "Seabed Acoustics". The 8th workshop will take place 9–10 November 2017 in "Hotel Neptun" in Rostock-Warnemünde (Germany).
You may still have good memories on the previous workshops. We received much positive feedback and have started already to prepare the upcoming "Seabed Acoustics" user seminar.
Again we will have a two-day event with presentations and discussions on the first day and live demonstrations of survey equipment as well as a user workshop on the second day. Presentations will focus on development projects, technology reports and user experience in the field of acoustical seabed investigation. During session breaks and the popular evening event there will be sufficient time discussions, networking and exchange of ecperiences.
Workshop language is English.
