11th IHMA Congress - Ports - essential for safe, efficient and secure global trade
The International Harbour Masters' Association (IHMA) is pleased to invite you to submit a 400-600 word abstract of a proposed paper in your area of expertise for the 11th IHMA Congress, to be held in London from the 25th - 28th June 2018.
Addressing the theme 'Ports - essential for safe, efficient and secure global trade' the Congress program will be designed to appeal to all those responsible for the safe, secure and efficient conduct of marine operations in ports and industry organisations working with, or within ports across all levels of the industry spectrum.
This is your opportunity to put forward your ideas, case studies and technical research on the innovations that will promote safe, efficient and secure maritime logistics, improve cooperation between ports and ships, develop best practice, and raise global standards for the safety, security and efficiency of ports.

13th International Symposium on Integrated Ship's Information Systems & Marine Traffic Engineering Conference - Navigating the Oceans
It is Tuesday, 28th May 2030, north of the Canary Islands. After a relaxing night, the first officer enters the idle bridge. A translucent projection on the windows highlights a swarm of unmanned trawlers fishing four nautical miles on port side, while their unmanned sister ship is still following them with two miles distance. Furthermore, a computer voice informs him about two ship encounters that took place during the night, while those are replayed on a tablet next to the captain's seat. The officer checks the vessel's position and route, which has slightly shifted to South.
A short videochat with the shore officer in Flensburg, who supervised the vessel during the night, and he has been informed that due to the latest weather forecast the course has been adjusted to avoid an upcoming low pressure system and that the weekly security update for the ECDIS is overdue. Furthermore, he got briefed that the shore office has cross-analyzed fuel injection sensor with the voyage data and detected a decreasing performance. The analyses expects a degrading hull performance, hence a cleaning has been ordered in the next port.
Shortly after this hand-over, he cross checks the event log of the lookout system, before he goes down to the galley. Each Tuesday morning, he there meets the chief onboard administrator for a coffee, before they do the routine security checks on the bridge.

World Ocean Forum 2017 - The ocean, the economy
The World Ocean Forum, contributing to the realization of marine powers and aiming for Davos Forum in terms of the ocean, celebrates its 11th anniversary this year. The World Ocean Forum has been developed as a global debate on analyzing various issues and seeking their measures with world-class scholars and marine experts.
In the 11th World Ocean Forum 2017 under the theme of 'The Ocean, The Economy' we will seek future strategy to sense the change of the ocean industry and create a new ocean value with IBCA (IoT, Big Data, Cyber Physical System, Artificial Intelligence) platforms in a new paradigm of the fourth industrial revolution.
