Initially planned in December 2020, the IFHS hydrographic conference, renamed HYDRO22, will take place 6 – 8 December 2022 at the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco.


After two very complicated years, our community has grown, attracting younger generations with innovative ideas and eager to enhance our Blue World.  As a conscientious community, it is also our duty to recognise our role and responsibility in the resilience of our climate, the access to marine knowledge and the sharing of our expertise to the widest audience.

We wish to gather the widest hydrographic and hydrospatial community for this event under this ambitious banner: “Towards Enhanced Responsibility”.
