2019 Meeting Page Below:

Martin Siderius of Portland State University agreed to offer space for MBIRS 2019!

The event is being hosted by PSU (space), Seahorse Geomatics (organization) and hopefully our sponsors (coffee/tea/lunch and/or a social event). If you are local and wish to help then please let me know (Mike: 503-841-7009)

Following our last successful meeting in Baton Rouge, LA (2017), we would like to continue a similar format of 2 days for presentations and discussion, and 1 day for field and/or software demonstrations. This workshop is open to contributions beyond multibeam echo sounding, such as photogrammetry and structure from motion, terrestrial LiDAR, acoustic Doppler current profilers, and other remotely sensed data. If your work deals with high-resolution data of river channels, this workshop is for you!

To register or submit a presentation topic for the workshop, please use the links below. There will not be a registration fee for this event, however there will be a limit on the number of attendees. So please make sure to sign-up as early as possible.

We look forward to seeing you in next week!
