Programme

The conference will see industry professionals share their thoughts and views on current navigational practices and its evolution to adapt to the increasing digitalisation in shipping.

Join us in our lively discussion and debate to be the industry’s voice to promote safe navigation amid the rapidly changing landscape of our industry.

Session 1: Navigation on the Modern Bridge 

This will review current navigation practices used on board merchant ships today and will discuss how developing technology, high speed digital communication systems, positioning systems and autonomous bridge systems will change the way the ships are navigated in the future. The session will also include passage planning and bridge team management.

Session 2: The Mariner and the Law

This session will look at the current collision regulations and ask if the regulations are still adequate for merchant vessels navigating in the digital age with autonomous ships now becoming a reality. The session will also look at some of the legal aspects related to incidents that occur on ships, such as criminalisation of seafarers, collision liability and issues arising from poor shipboard procedures such as inadequate passage planning.

Lunch & Networking

Time for lunch and networking.

Session 3:  Green Shipping (How Green is my Shipping)

This session will consider the current requirements that are driving shipping towards decarbonisation and a greener operating environment. It will also consider topics such as alternative fuels, ballast water management and the recycling of ships.

Session 4: Shaping the Future Navigator (Gen Alpha) 

This session will look specifically at issues that revolve around the modern-day navigator on a digital ship. Topics to be discussed will include relevant training and certification, MLC changes (acceptance in June by ILO, in-force by Dec 2024), manning and the retention of experienced navigators at sea as well as dealing with and understanding and operating modern bridge systems.
