Digital Ship Athens – now in its 17th year – reviews the most important topics of maritime digitalisation, in the world’s largest centre of shipping and technology. We are at early stages with the agenda but here are some of the topics we might be discussing this year.
Satellites – A discussion about the current changing situation with L band, VSAT and LEOs, including with the new LEO systems like Leosat and SpaceWeb. Are the new LEOs a threat to L band and VSAT? Or is this competition which the traditional providers are comfortable facing head-on?
Cybersecurity – what are the precise concerns for shipping companies? Are the risks misplaced or exaggerated? Are we properly separating the concerns of hacking navigation equipment, corporate software, shipboard systems and shipboard software?
Onboard systems – are our digital systems fit for purpose for what we want to do? Are we thinking more about controlling seafarers rather than supporting them? Do our technologies make it as straightforward as possible to safely navigate a vessel.
Digitalisation project management – companies are increasingly putting people in the role of ‘project managers’ for new digitalisation projects – which is quite a different role to the traditional ‘IT manager’. We’ll discuss the new role of project managers and what they do.
Fuel efficiency data – companies are increasingly under pressure to reduce fuel consumption, but gathering and analysing data from vessels, to a point where it can be used to make decisions, in a world where nearly every vessel is different, is far from easy. Are there ways it can be easier to gather and share data and use it to drive decisions?
Predictive maintenance – companies have been talking about predicting which parts will fail before they fail since Digital Ship Athens started. But are they any closer to this goal? Are there machine learning techniques which are proving to work, in spotting patterns in the sensor data which indicate specific problems emerging with equipment?
From 5 – 8 November 2019 Europort, organised in the world port city of Rotterdam, will be the leading exhibition for special purpose vessels. Europort is thé business hub for the maritime sector, as the event focuses on specialised ships and the smart solutions which drive success. With 27,000 professional visitors and over a 1,000 exhibiting companies Europort belongs to the world’s leading maritime meeting places.
The goal of the conference is to bring together this maritime hub’s transportation chain stakeholders to discuss the benefits of enhanced integration and data sharing among those working in the maritime and transport logistics sectors; informing and educating on technological developments and innovations, while providing wider opportunities for relationship building, business development and knowledge sharing.
The Maritime Cyprus Conference is an established biennial event organised by the Shipping Deputy Ministry in cooperation with the Cyprus Shipping Chamber and the Cyprus Union of Shipowners. In 2019, Maritime Cyprus will proudly celebrate 30 years since it was first held in 1989. Maritime Cyprus 2019 will take place between 6 and9 October 2019 and will focus on the theme of “Sea Change”.
The Conference brings together more than 1000 participants, including shipowners, shipping executives, regulators and state officials from all over the world, including over 40 high-profile, high-calibre speakers. This year’s exciting line-up will include discussions on all important topics relevant to the shipping industry, including shifts in established business models, regulatory challenges, environmental protection and the impact of technological transformation.
Singapore has some of the world’s most connected, mobile and social digital users – it has one of the most digital governments – it has perhaps the most structured approach to education – and of course a large maritime industry. All of these factors come together in the 2019 CIO Singapore forum on October 10.
The maritime sector is going through big digital change but finding the right pathway through it is far from easy. Where does the industry really need to go with its digital transformation? What role will the IT leadership play? And how do we make cyber resilience easier to achieve?
The answers to these questions is far from clear, but we’ll be looking at them at our Singapore forum this October. Speakers and panellists confirmed from Lilly Shipping, Singapore Maritime and Port Authority, Executive Ship Management, Wilhelmsen Group, Iino Kaiun Kaisha, Zeaborn Ship Management (Singapore). No attendance fee for employees of ship operators and shipbuilders
The core aim of the Smart Maritime Network is to change the narrative around interoperability, standardisation and harmonisation in the maritime and the wider transport infrastructure.
