2022 Virtual ICPC Plenary Theme: Installing, Operating and Maintaining Resilient Submarine Cable Infrastructure in a Rapidly Evolving Global Environment


The International Cable Protection Committee (ICPC) now seeks presentation abstracts that speak to the conference’s wide-ranging theme addressing resilient submarine cable infrastructure. Recommended topics include, but are not limited to the following:
  • Innovative cable protection methods that minimise impacts on the marine environment
  • Ensuring network reliability against a background of continuing climate change
  • Science as it is applied to submarine cable system design, routing, and protection
  • Installer, operator, and government measures to enhance cable system security
  • Cooperation with other seabed users and/or regulators to protect infrastructure, marine industries, and biodiversity
The ICPC Plenary (to be held virtually from 26th - 27th April 2022) is a closed to ICPC Members, selected speakers and invited guests, but non-Members are welcome to submit a presentation abstract for consideration via the link here. The deadline for abstracts is Friday, 4th February 2022 and all presentation guidelines are detailed in the ‘Call for Papers’ below.

Due to COVID-19, the 2022 Plenary format will be a two-day live virtual event comprised of live panel discussions, roundtables, and interviews. The most pertinent and emerging topics facing the submarine cable industry will be discussed through engaging dialogue and Q&A. Recorded presentations will be hosted on the dedicated Plenary website for ongoing attendee viewing during and after the Plenary event.
