There is something for everybody within the hydrographic industry at FEMME.

  • Be inspired - the forum boasts 3 full days of presentations, papers and workshops from a host of exciting guest speakers
  • With workshops and demonstrations from our team of professionals, you're guaranteed to learn something new

  • You can contribute to the improvement of the multibeam product range with your opinions and ideas 
  • Gain an insight into the entire industry from our third party exhibitions 

Call for papers

Presentations by users of the Kongsberg Maritime multibeam echo sounders will constitute a very central part of FEMME 2023. We call for papers which address technical or practical aspects of multibeam surveying or mapping in a broad sense, especially under challenging conditions as arctic areas, experience with multibeam surveying, as well as presentations which deal with multibeam echo sounder, external sensor technology and data processing.

Please mark on the registration page if you want to be a speaker at FEMME and you will receive instructions on how to proceed. 

Deadline for submitting abstracts: 1st of August 2023.
