|The Western Dredging Association (WEDA) is pleased to make the Call for Abstracts for our annual Dredging Summit & Expo ’21. The conference is scheduled to take place at the brand new JW Marriott in downtown Tampa, FL from June 14-17, 2021. At this time, we are optimistic this conference will not have to be rescheduled or go virtual, however, we are continually monitoring the COVID-19 situation and vaccine distribution projections and we’ll update you of any changes.
ABSTRACTS THAT WERE PREVIOUSLY ACCEPTED FOR 2020 EXPO
If you have an accepted abstract for the 2020 Expo in Houston that was postponed, you do not need to resubmit it. It is automatically accepted for the 2021 conference. We will email you shortly with instructions to confirm your interest in presenting in 2021. If you do not receive this email, please contact Tom Cappellino at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline to submit abstracts is January 17, 2021.
WEDA’s technical sessions at the Dredging Summit and Expo are the premier venue to discuss the science and practice of dredging, navigation, and marine engineering. Interested authors and presenters are invited to submit abstracts online at WEDA2021.exordo.com.
The theme for this year’s conference is “Dredging: The Impacts of Climate Change“. The presentations featured at this conference are technical papers to be shared for the advancement of the science and profession of dredging, navigation, and marine engineering. The plenary sessions are not meant to provide a forum for promoting commercialized information. Abstracts presenting both practical applications as well as applied research are encouraged.
