Date & venue
The Pro-Tide Conference will take place on 30th September-1st October 2015 at Cruise Terminal 2, Western Docks, Port of Dover, CT17 9DQ.
Approximately 70 miles from London, the M20 will provide the quickest and most direct route for most passengers heading to Dover, particularly if coming from the West. The M20 merges into the A20 at Folkestone.
Continue along the A20 until you reach the Limekiln roundabout where you will see the Dover Cruise Terminals (Western Docks) signposted to the right. Head right round the roundabout and drive into the terminal car park.
If you are coming to Dover via the M2, the road merges into the A2 at Faversham. Stay on the A2 until you get to the Eastern Docks roundabout and take a left onto the A20. Head along this road until you are almost about to leave Dover and take a left into the Cruise Terminals where it is clearly signposted, at the Limekiln roundabout.
Car parking is available within the CruiseTerminal for conference delegates.
Dover Priory is the nearest train station to Dover Cruise Terminals, just over 2 miles from Cruise Terminal 2, with High-Speed 1 (HS1) train services to London in just over one hour.
The nearest airport offering direct flights from worldwide destinations is Gatwick, located south of London. Approximately 78 miles away down the M20 and then M25; it is roughly a 1 hour 20 minute drive from Dover.
A shuttle service will run from Dover Seafront to Cruise Terminal 2 (times tbc).

"Alternative energy sources are becoming inevitable to solve the energy challenge we are facing today. Tidal energy provides an untapped resource of predictable and reliable energy."
“Agility is a virtue; The tests indicate that it helps fish to avoid potentially dangerously moving turbine blades”Dr. ir. Jacob Van BerkelPrincipal investigator and Pro-Tide-NL Technical Coordinator
"After testing turbines in the Scheldt, we are happy to announce it is in fact possible to generate energy from the slow Scheldt current. We can even imagine it being profitable given the necessary support."
“Seeing is believing: Observing a juvenile Eel being caught by a turbine blade, and surviving without injury, convincingly proved that tidal turbines can be fish friendly”Dr. ir. Jacob Van BerkelPrincipal investigator and Pro-Tide-NL Technical Coordinator
We were amazed how easy it is to generate energy from water, with pretty simple technology.
"Tests and model based prediction of fish damage now, for the first time, clearly demonstrate that Ultra Low Head Tidal Power Plants can be fish friendly, with a survival rate between 98 and 100 %, depending on species and turbine type."Dr. ir.
