Welcome to HYDRO 2016 – Hydrographic Conference and Exhibition
In November 2016 the 24th annual IFHS Hydrographic Conference and Exhibition "HYDRO 2016" takes place in Rostock-Warnemünde. This event is organized by the German Hydrographic Society (DHyG) on behalf of the International Federation of Hydrographic Societies (IFHS). You may still have good memories on HYDRO 2010 which was held at the same place.
Do not confuse this IFHS Hydrographic Conference with another "HYDRO 2016" conference on hydropower development in October 2016 in Montreaux, Switzerland.
