FULL PROGRAMME LAUNCHED FOR 14TH INTERNATIONAL NAVAL ENGINEERING CONFERENCE AND EXHIBITION / INTERNATIONAL SHIP CONTROL SYSTEMS SYMPOSIUM

The full programme for the 14th International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC 2018); incorporating the long-established International Ship Control Systems Symposium (iSCSS), has been launched and is online at http://www.inec.org.uk/programme. The duo of events is being held in Glasgow from Tuesday 2 – Thursday 4 October 2018. The programme features over a hundred technical papers with 19 countries represented by authors speaking to the events’ themes – ‘Inspiring Naval Engineering’ for INEC and ‘Revolutionary Technology Inspiring Ship Control’ for iSCSS.

• Outstanding international breadth and depth - authors from 19 countries
• Topics are highly contemporary, forward thinking and diverse

As INEC’s Conference Chairman Capt Matt Bolton RN, Ministry of Defence, UK explains: “The international breadth and depth of the conference is outstanding. What is more, the range of topics being discussed is highly contemporary, forward thinking and diverse, making it hugely relevant to anyone involved in naval engineering, at any part of the lifecycle and from anywhere on the globe.”

iSCSS is being relaunched after a nine-year gap. It was an initiative started by the government defence departments in Canada, The Netherlands, UK and USA with the objective to promote knowledge sharing and collaboration between member nations in ship control systems concepts, design, operation and support, as well as to provide a professional and public forum for commercial marine, industry, government, academia and naval engineering communities. The symposia series was organised 14 times rotating between the four nations from 1966 until 2009.

Online registration for INEC and iSCSS is coming soon, visit the INEC website to keep up-to-date and follow updates on Twitter, Naval Engineering @Naval_IMarEST.

HIGHLY TOPICAL CYBER SECURITY PANEL DEBATE TO FEATURE AT MECSS 2017

“A new strain of ransomware nicknamed ‘Bad Rabbit’ has been found spreading in Russia, Ukraine and elsewhere” reported the media as recently as 24 October. Hardly a day goes by without news of a fresh cyber-attack. Organisations as diverse as Maersk and the UK’s National Health Service have suffered attacks and increasingly the message from cyber security specialists is “think not ‘if we get attacked’ but ‘when’, and be prepared”.

The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology’s (IMarEST) Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS 2017), being held in Glasgow on 22 and 23 November, will feature a highly topical Cyber Security Panel Debate entitled ‘Maturity, commonalities and differences in approaches to cyber security across transport’, organised by The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in collaboration with IMarEST, and designed to help delegates prepare for the attack that will be coming their way. http://www.mecss.org.uk/programme

“The IET Code of Practice: Cyber Security for Ships published in September lies at the heart of the debate, which will take place at the end of the first day of MECSS 2017," explains MECSS 2017 Conference Chairman, Kevin Daffey, Director Engineering & Technology, Marine at Rolls-Royce. “The debate will build on previous successful collaborations between IMarEST and IET, as well as providing additional focus from two major Professional Engineering Institutions (PEIs) for this rapidly emerging and complex area for the maritime sector and wider industry.

KEYNOTE SPEAKER ANNOUNCED FOR IMarEST’s MECSS 2017

The theme of the third Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS 2017) ‘delivering integrated, dependable, safe and reliable systems’ will provide the newly announced Keynote Speaker - Peter Deverill, Principal Engineer Marine Systems, Ships Operating Centre, at the UK’s Ministry of Defence - with an ideal topic which relates both to technologies and the human/system aspect of those technologies.
Peter Deverill joined Ministry of Defence in 1991 after gaining a BEng (Hons) at UMIST. Initially working in the Defence Evaluation and Research Agency conducting equipment type testing and fault-finding investigations on board HM Ships and Submarines, he moved to Defence Equipment and Support (DE&S) (Defence Logistics Organisation and Procurement Executive as was) in 1999 where he became responsible for the in-service support of Electric Power and Propulsion Systems.

INTERNATIONAL SHIP CONTROL SYSTEMS SYMPOSIUM TO BE HELD ALONGSIDE IMarEST’s INEC 2018

The International Ship Control Systems Symposium (iSCSS) is being relaunched after a nine-year gap and will be held alongside INEC 2018 (the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition) from Tuesday 2 – Thursday 4 October 2018 at the Technology & Innovation Centre at the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow, UK.

Both Learned Society events are being organised by FIGS Events on behalf of the IMarEST (Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology). The iSCSS Call for Papers, with its theme ‘Revolutionary Technology Inspiring Ship Control’, is now available at http://www.inec.org.uk.

As Lt Cdr Rinze Geertsma RNLN (Royal Netherlands Navy), Chairman of the iSCSS Technical Advisory Sub-Committee explains: “iSCSS, which was last held in 2009, has a distinguished history of technical symposia spanning over 40 years. Working with our sub-committee of international control experts, we want to bridge the gap between the shipbuilding industry, academia and research institutes, not only for the naval sector, but for the maritime sector as a whole. The Symposium represents an opportunity to influence future control strategies.

“Outside the maritime domain, new technologies are developing at revolutionary speeds, such as autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, robotics, hybrid propulsion and power generation, and intelligent power and energy management. If the marine sector is to benefit from these technologies, we urgently need to rethink our control strategies for all types of marine vehicles.”
