Welcome to the Talks – Opening ceremony – Day 1

Let’s talk about diving


8:30

Does it look like we are flying in a far away galaxy?

Discover the world with me…
universe, underground, underwater

Underwater Photogrammetry

“With the ability to create a fully immersive, extremely accurate 3d model of an object or area, Photogrammetry is the future for data capture. Our aim is to inspire the viewer and tell the underlying story.”


9:30

Live for moments you can’t put into words

“Since 2014 we have continued exploration in Cueva Quebrada and have the current length of the system at close to 45,000′. We continue our exploration efforts and continue to expand the known system several times a year.”

Black Water Photography

“Sharing what our amazing oceans look like through my lens and mind’s eye. It is all about exploring and pushing boundaries in underwater photography and art.”


10:30

Coffee Break


11:00

Let’s talk about cave diving

“The freedom, the feeling of flying through a three-dimensional structure. It’s like being plonked down in the middle of a fascinating landscape or city and being told – go investigate! I am insatiably curious about what is around the next corner.”

Underwater Robotics

The CoMap – Cooperative Autonomous Multi-Vehicle Mapping System uses both deep (AUV’s) and surface (ASV’s) robotic vehicles in an integrated bathymetric mapping system. By articulating underwater and surface robots for the same purpose, this project takes advantage of the greatest strengths of each one.


12:00

Underwater and Hiperbaric Medicine

“Columbus of the 21th century”

The dive on September 27 was one in the long series of dives that I did in the last 20 years in Hranická Propast. They all had the same goal: to explore the cave further and deeper. As the expedition leader for the last several years, I’ve prepared the equipment and the route in and out for the ROV’s dive, so the ROV could go beyond the limits of a human diver, and get through the restricted passage and between the fallen logs and trees.


13:00

Networking lunch


14:00

Mine diving

“Every now and then I pull myself through holes, having no idea of the several-metre falls that wait beyond them. I wish that I had refreshed what little rock climbing skills I have before the journey.”

15:00

Subaquatic Archaeology

“The NRP Carlos I and NRP Andrómeda, participated in the discovery by a team of naval historians and maritime archaeologists from Universidade Nova. The contribution of the Hydrographic Institute and the Navy ships allowed the location and identification of the steam vessel “Terje Viken”, sunk by a German submarine, on April 16, 1916, offshore Cascais.”

Physiology of decompression

“During the last few years technical diving has become much more popular and has moved into mainstream diving. As a result a significant number of recreational divers are moving towards technical diving. Despite this, there are still many misconceptions about what technical diving actually means and what is involved.”


16:00

Coffee break


16:30

For the love of diving

“It is just amazing to me to be able to swim through the Earth and see places that are kind of like the final frontier. Not many of us are going to get to travel to outer space in our lifetimes, but the caves are almost like traveling in outer space and they are reachable.”

Diving 332.35 metres deep

“How did he do it? Why did he do it?” and “what type of person does this?”

This Talk will bring to the table these questions and you will get the answers, too.

Talks – Day 2

Let’s talk about diving


8:30

My life as a cave diver

“The polar region is warming more than twice as fast as the rest of the planet. That means that our northern geography is changing faster than anywhere else on earth. The Arctic is undergoing a massive transformation at a time when we have barely documented what lies at the interface between the sea rapidly depleting ice. Arctic on the Edge will take a close look at the journey of sea ice and how it is transforming humanity and the natural world.”

Great Lake’s Wrecks

“Sometimes I think our dive gear seems more like a time machine. It can seem like a dream that fades as soon as you return to the surface. “


9:30

Deeper into the Alviela System

The freedom, the feeling of flying through a three-dimensional structure. It’s like being plonked down in the middle of a fascinating landscape or city and being told – go investigate! I am insatiably curious about what is around the next corner.

Military diving

“At the end of the nineties, each Detachment of Sapper Divers (DMS) specialized in a distinct area, with DMS1 being assigned special operations (underwater sabotage and advanced coast reconnaissance) and explosive device inactivation operations – Explosive Ordnance Disposal (EOD), for its part, DMS2 was assigned the operations of Maritime Salvation and Safeguarding human life at sea (Search and Rescue – SAR).”


10:30

Shipwrecks in the Baltic Sea

Baltic Sea Heritage Rescue Project is an organization that engages people from many countries who care about the protection of the Baltic Sea. We find and remove Ghost nets, search, identify and document wrecks to protect them and keep their stories alive

Why I Dive

“My primary motivation has never been to leave one mark on something; it´s more like a Peter Pan never grow up child-like approach, I want to go around that corner and see that first, because of all the privilege of seeing it first.”


11:30

Coffee break


12:00

The Darkness Really Beckons

The lure of the world’s longest, deepest, most beautiful and unique caves: the trials and tribulations of caving expeditions! This is a personal insight to the glorious world of caves and caving. There are fabulous sights and incredible challenge as explorers push further and ever deeper underground.

Sea, Last Frontier

“With the “Sea, the Last Frontier” the objective was to surprise the Portuguese. Doing the first major project on our marine life. Shoot all the sites, however remote. The entire Portuguese mainland, seven of the nine islands in the Azores, the entire archipelago of Madeira.”
