2018 Spring Summit - Autonomous Vessels: The Human-Machine Team

STAR Center | April  3-5, 2018

As a continuance of our efforts started in 2017 to facilitate robust discussion within the maritime industry, the focus of this year’s Spring Summit has been dedicated solely to “Autonomous Vessels.”  With evolving technology of autonomous vessels and autonomous maritime operations in Europe, Asia, and around the world, the need to facilitate dialog and sharing information is paramount to ensure we are informed and active “in the interest of maritime safety, security, and environmental stewardship.” As a recognized leader in this area, we feel your contribution to this event would help considerably to further these discussions and decision making moving forward.
