ACCSEAS Final Conference 2015

‘Navigating the North Sea Region into the Future’ is announced as the theme of the FINAL CONFERENCE to be held in Rotterdam, 17th – 19th February, 2015.

The Final ACCSEAS Conference will present and demonstrate the e-Navigation test-bed solutions developed by ACCSEAS to improve accessibility and to help mariners take safe and effective decisions when navigating the North Sea Region.

It aims to build upon the success of the second ACCSEAS Annual Conference held in Edinburgh, earlier this year and will bring together a global audience to explore the implementation of the ACCSEAS
e-Navigation test-bed services and present the concluding results of this engaging North Sea Region project.

Chaired by international maritime expert Kees Polderman former chair of the IMO navigation committee, whose involvement with the IMO spans over 25 years.

The conference will present and demonstrate the solutions, followed by lively and interactive panel discussions that will:

- Address navigation challenges in the North Sea Region
- Demonstrate practical e-Navigation solutions
- Identify WHO takes the solutions forward and HOW!
- Encourage delegates to take part in the e-Navigation Users Forum.

ACCSEAS and its 11 partners welcome all stakeholders to the conference and looks forward to sharing the outputs from this three year Interreg IVB North Sea region Project.

The ACCSEAS Project, which seeks to improve maritime access to the North Sea Region of Europe, is run by a partnership of navigation and maritime authorities, academic institutions and industry from Denmark, Germany, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom.

Commenting on the ACCSEAS Project, Mick Kinley, Deputy Chief Executive, Australian Maritime Safety Authority stated “The excellent speakers and the presentations that were made at this year’s conference not only gave me an understanding for the first time of what e-navigation actually is, but also showed that projects such as ACCSEAS are going to make e-navigation a reality, that the shipping industry needs to start preparing for today.”
