Dr. Brian Calder and Dr. Luciano Fonseca both professors at UNH-CCOM will speak at the conference. Dr. Calder will assist in an expert session focusing on Hypack’s integration of his CUBE algorithm used to clean multibeam data and Dr. Fonseca will explain some of the features of the Geocoder program both on Monday afternoon January 7.

This year for the first time one-on-one sessions are offered. Attendees can sign up for a 30 minute private session with a HYPACK developer or support engineer. Most of the HYPACK programming and support crew will be present and available for these sessions.
