April 15 is the deadline for early registration discounts for the HydroVision 2008 conference, to be held July 14-18 in Sacramento.
More than 2,100 hydropower professionals are expected to participate in the week of activities at the international conference, HydroVision organizer HCI Publications said.
Activities will include sessions in seven interactive ï¿½tracks,ï¿½ or topic areas: asset management; hydraulic structures and safety; new development; ocean/tidal/stream power; operations and maintenance; policies and regulation; and water resources. Three additional tracks will feature technical papers. More than 150 papers have been developed exclusively for the HydroVision conference, by authors representing 28 countries.
HydroVision includes an exhibition of more than 250 industry equipment and service providers. An International Hydropower Association forum on greenhouse gas emissions will be held July 15 in conjunction with the conference. (HNN 1/22/08) HydroVision also will feature pre- and post-conference activities, including power plant tours, seminars and workshops, and professional meetings.
By registering before April 15, conference delegates pay a $635 fee, saving $150 off the on-site registration fee. Multiple registration discounts of $75 for each full conference registration are available to companies purchasing four or more full conference registrations; all registrations must be submitted together to qualify for that discount.
