7-8 November 2019. Ahoy, Rotterdam, the Netherlands
Professor Cees van Rhee of Delft University of Technology – and chairman of CEDA Dredging Days2019 Papers Committee – outlines this year’s event
This year, the Dredging Days kick off with a panel discussion on energy transition and how this transition will affect the dredging industry, seen from different angles. Stakeholders from governments, port authorities, contractors, suppliers and the knowledge institutes are present in the panel.
The successful interactive session, well known from previous years, is also scheduled into this year’s programme. The topic is interaction with stakeholders in project design and construction. This makes dredging projects often complex and high-profile.
The regular sessions are filled with an interesting mix of papers dealing with the latest developments in dredging technology, exciting presentations about case studies, project management and managing environmental effects. In the traditional academic sessions, young professionals will present high quality papers on numerical modelling of slurry transport and hopper sedimentation. During this session, we will also hear about laboratory experiments on cutting of rock.
Young CEDA will again host the fast-paced Pitch Talks in the PechaKucha 20x20 style this year. Students, graduates, and young professionals will present and promote their work enabling them to get in contact with experienced professionals in the audience.
In all, thanks to the authors and the papers committee, we’re confident that we’ve put together an interesting programme that will bring you up to speed with dredging’s latest developments.
