The Technical Papers Committee will assess the extended abstracts. Successful authors will be invited to submit their final abstracts and presentation materials, which will undergo a peer-review for quality, correctness, originality and match with the relevant session in the programme.

The extended abstracts will be published in the CEDA Dredging Days 2021 proceedings.


In line with the revamped programme, CEDA wishes the contributions in this category to be presented in different formats. For this purpose, presenters will undertake to work with CEDA and CEDA’s Meeting Designer, Mike van der Vijver of MindMeeting. Together, they will develop an appropriate presentation format in mutual cooperation. CEDA considers this work an integral part of its continued pursuit of professionalisation and high-quality services for its members.
