Underwater Intervention 2016 Conference Program - (Page 7)
Welcome to UI 2016
As Co-Chairmen of Underwater Intervention 2016, we are pleased to welcome you to
New Orleans for a fun and informative three days.
And we extend a special welcome to our Awards Dinner Keynote Speaker, Tim Taylor from
Mr. Taylor will speak at the Annual Awards Dinner where we will recognize special
achievements and honor the pioneers and leaders of our industry.
As with the past 23 Underwater Intervention Conferences, the Technical Program
Committee has assembled an excellent program that addresses all aspects of the challenges
of working underwater. There are Tracks covering new Diving and ROV technology, Marine
Education, Instruments and Sensors, Manned Underwater Vehicles. This year we have also
added new sessions covering AUV, and ASV Technology, Ocean Exploration and Deepwater
Some other highlights you will want to participate in are the Early Bird Reception on Monday,
the UI Awards Dinner on Tuesday, and the Demonstration Tank.
UI is run by volunteers, without their time and effort, there would be no conference. The
Technical Program Committee is chaired by Drew Trent (Oceaneering). Drew and the Track
Chairs (see listing page 6) have worked tirelessly to bring you an excellent, well-organized
program. When you see these folks, be sure to stop and thank them for their efforts.
The exhibit floor is an excellent place to learn about the latest developments in underwater
equipment and services. Several new exhibitors join us this year, be sure to visit each booth to
make new acquaintances or renew old friendships.
Be certain to download our NEW SHOW APP for your smart devices. It's a great way to keep
up with activities at the conference, network, check in at activities and booths. Underwater
Intervention 2016 can be downloaded at no cost from the App Store, Google Play and 5html.
This should be an exciting conference; we hope your time here is educational, enriching,
