MASRWG Conference Nov 2017
UK International Marine Autonomous Systems Regulatory Conference 2017
16 - 17 November 2017
National Oceanography Centre, European Way, Southampton, SO14 3ZH
2017 has seen significant developments in the regulatory backdrop for Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) as the Maritime Safety Committee at IMO have now accepted a scoping exercise into their work programme. Meanwhile the UK MAS Regulatory Working Group have been preparing a voluntary Code of Practice which is expected to be launched at the 3rd Annual Conference. This will take place at the National Oceanography Centre in Southampton on the 16th and 17th November.
The programme includes key note speakers on both days. Speakers and panels will address issues relating to Regulation, the Human Element and Cyber Security on the first day. On the second day, there will be perspectives from several international speakers and a final session highlighting some of the challenges that lie ahead, notably with Multi-modal autonomy infrastructure and insurance.
The full programme is below and tickets are available from https://conference.noc.ac.uk/maswrg2017 . Tickets cost £50 per head and will include all refreshments and lunch on both days. There will also be a reception at the Sea City Museum (http://seacitymuseum.co.uk/) on the evening of the 16th November within the ticket price for those attending the conference.
These are exciting times for autonomy at sea and this conference will address some of the key issues.
Space will be limited so early booking is strongly recommended.
