Beginning this year, WEDA is accepting a limited number of abstracts for which a full paper is not mandatory. For these sessions, presenters may submit an extended abstract (2 pages) and their PowerPoint presentations for consideration. The theme for this year’s conference is “Waves of Change: Oceans of Opportunity,” which will focus on dredging presentations with an emphasis on planning for new regulations, adjusting to new technologies, and developing a new competitive edge.
