The European Subsea Cables Association (ESCA), the European trade association for submarine power and telecommunications cables announces that its next bi-annual Plenary will be held 12th to 13th September 2018 at the Hilton Bath City Hotel, Bath, UK.

The bi-annual ESCA Plenary session provides members with the opportunity to listen to speaker presentations on current industry affairs and items of interest on the Subsea Cable Sector from, but not limited to, an operational, environmental and legislatory perspective. The evening dinner also provides the opportunity for networking with colleagues and invited guests.

Over 60 delegates from the ESCA membership; submarine cable system owners, maintenance authorities, system manufacturers, cable ship operators, consultants and submarine cable route survey companies from many different countries, will discuss and exchange technical, legal and environmental information affecting the industry.

To this end ESCA now seeks abstracts on related topics, noting final papers must be technically correct and should be of interest to ESCA Members that will be attending the Plenary.

Further information on abstract submission guidelines and timescales and on the work of ESCA, including membership, can be found on the ESCA website.
