The GEBCO Symposium on Bathymetry is a forum to share, learn and collaborate with others in the ocean mapping and related communities. This event is held only once a year and draws a diverse group of professionals, media, scientists and policy makers. It is a day filled with discussion, digital and oral presentations, and networking.
Historically called the GEBCO Science Day, the name was changed in 2017 to reflect the growing desire to incorporate industry, map makers and emerging innovators pursuing change for ocean mapping. The Symposium is held as part of GEBCO's annual meetings.
The GEBCO Symposium is an excellent venue for exchanging ideas and growing new collaborations. Please come, share your knowledge, and join an international and cross-disciplinary team engaged in exciting and fundamental work. Any contributor to the Symposium can signify interest to attend to the GEBCO's Technical Sub-Committee meetings on Ocean Mapping (TSCOM); Regional Undersea Mapping (SCRUM) and Outreach & Public Engagement (SCOPE) to be held on 4-5 November in Portsmouth, New Hampshire, USA.
Please note that you need to register to attend the TSCOM, SCRUM and SCOPE meetings and the Symposium. Further details and logistical information about the meetings is available from documents on the GEBCO pages at the IHO's web site.
