We are pleased to make the First Call for Papers. The technical sessions at the Dredging Summit and Expo are the premiere venue to discuss the science and practice of dredging. Interested authors are invited to submit one page abstracts (less than 400 words along with a descriptive title and author(s) contact information). The deadline to submit abstracts is January 15, 2018.  Abstracts are to be submitted via email to Info@WesternDredging.org.

The Technical Papers Committee will review all abstracts and notify authors of acceptance and provide final manuscript instructions for production of the Dredging Summit & Expo ’18 proceedings. Submission and acceptance of an abstract means that one or more of the authors MUST register, pay registration fees, attend the Dredging Summit & Expo, and give the presentation in English. 


The conference program encourages dredging presentations with a focus on research, technology development, and pilot-scale projects within academia, government, and industry. Speakers are encouraged to provide presentations that highlight the application of the work’s findings to future logistical, technical, and economic constraints and regulatory requirements within the dredging environment. This year’s conference location in Norfolk, Virginia also provides an opportunity to highlight naval projects and Chesapeake Bay related topics. Topics may include but are not limited to:

Improving Dredge Safety Treatment of Dredged Sediments
Innovative Equipment and Techniques Land Reclamation
Dredging Research & Education Surveying & Mapping
Budgeting & Cost Estimating Dredging for Beach Nourishment
New Dredging Equipment Environmental Dredging & Capping
