The Ship Control Systems Symposium 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.
In 2018, it is relaunched as the International Ship Control Systems Symposium (iSCSS) and was held alongside INEC 2018 focussing on the rapid development of new revolutionary technologies and the impact on future control system strategies for both naval vessels and commercial ships. Proceedings from 2018 are available open access here on Zenodo.
iSCSS 2020 - Surfing the digital transformation
6-8 October 2020 AULA Congress Centre, TU Delft, The Netherlands
Call for papers
After the successful iSCSS 2018, we are very proud to launch the call for papers for iSCSS 2020. This time, we aim to surf the digital transformation and continue the collaboration between shipbuilding industry, the wider commercial sector, academia and research institutes. Moreover, we strive to progress the crossover between the naval sector and the whole maritime sector.
The development of disruptive technologies in society continues to accelerate. This provides opportunities for the maritime sector to address its three main challenges: the energy transition, the transition to autonomy for systems and ships, and maintaining safety and security during these transitions. Only if we address all three aspects, we can make the most out of the opportunities from disruptive technologies such as artificial intelligence, robotics, big data analysis, novel materials and alternative energy sources.
We believe the continued collaboration with INEC provides a unique forum for decision makers, seafarers, engineers, researchers and anyone involved in ship control. We will debate how we can better design and integrate on-board-systems and optimally control these systems to achieve a sustainable maritime future. Therefore, we are very excited to work with Delft University of Technology to inspire the new generation for a maritime career and to continue the Sir Donald Gosling awards for young professionals!
