Event description

Description

It is our great pleasure to announce that in 2019, we will once again be holding a members’ conference.

Increased automation is a given in the logistics chain of the future. From the way we purchase goods around the world, to the way they are delivered to our front door, transportation is becoming faster and more sophisticated with a greater number of automated processes. This will undoubtedly have an effect on the core process of the global logistics chain – shipping. Whilst we may not see fully automated containerships navigating the Solent anytime soon, we have witnessed great automation leaps in the industry over the last decade. As a human elements organisation, our focus in this area is the interface between seafarers and onboard systems, to ensure safe operations. We are particularly interested in how we upskill the seafarer of the future, to meet the human-computer interfaces of tomorrows’ ships.

It is for this reason we have titled our 2019 conference ‘The Human Element in Marine Automation’. Over the course of the day, we aim to address the current human element issues within marine automation and take a look at likely technological developments to ensure that the various training programmes in the industry stay relevant. This will be a unique event which will facilitate discussions between shipping companies, manufacturers, educators and seafarers.
