8:00 – 10:00 AM

Small data round table

Small data is a development of big data analytics that is well suited for the maritime world. Rather than gathering and transmitting several megabytes of data from ship to control centre every day, the small data idea is to select only those critical data elements that can help to optimise fuel consumption, port charges, personnel welfare and training expenses, vessel repair, insurance, and other costs. That increases speed and value of the data analysis. It also cuts the need for ever-larger satellite and comms bandwidth. IHS Maritime and Trade is hosting a closed session round table discussion at SMM that will focus on the capabilities of small data from the point of view of users who will benefit. Maritime experts will bring their own sector’s perspective to the table to inform, challenge, and progress this thought-leadership opportunity.

 


12:00 – 2:00 PM

Fuel compliance to 2020 closed round table

Sponsored by ExxonMobil

What options will be open to ship owners if IMO’s MEPC agrees in October to push for a global sulphur cap of 0.5%? Barely any scrubbers have yet been installed on ships, engine builders are waiting, some will consider continuing with 3.5% sulphur fuels regardless. Shipping is an industry in paralysis. IHS Maritime & Trade, with our partners ExxonMobil, will host a round table discussion at SMM in Hamburg in September at which we provide an overview of the existing position, identify the options available if the date chosen is 2020 or 2022, and offer takeaways to enable robust decision-making when MEPC makes its own position clear.

 


4:00 – 6:00 PM

Cyber security round table

Give that some 90% of large UK organisations have been hacked and 74% of smaller organisations have come under attack, in the age of the connected ship, cyber security is more important than ever. The IHS Fairplay maritime security survey will seek to establish the nature of cyber-attacks within shipping. It will assess how widespread the problem is, which vessel and ship systems are more vulnerable to attack and which maritime stakeholders are most at risk. This round table will enable ship owners and operators, ship managers, ship builders, port authorities and other maritime stakeholders to safely share this information about this key issue affecting the industry. The results of the survey and the suggested solutions that emerge will be published on Fairplay.ihs.com and within Safety at Sea magazine.

9:45 – 11:15 AM

Cyber security clinic

Attend our cyber security clinic to learn from our partners, what solutions are available and how you can protect your business and vessels from attack. We will invite our partners to join us for our clinic where the ship owner/manager/operator can approach you directly to discuss their challenges and any questions they have around this complicated topic and area of uncertainty.

 


12:15 – 1:30 PM

Maritime Briefing – Will technology make the seafarer redundant?

The downturn in the dry bulk, offshore, and container shipping sectors has deflected concern about a shortage of seafarers. However, an even more significant issue is the requirement to re-train and re-equip seafarers with the skills needed to work with rapidly evolving maritime technology. The much-heralded automated ships will take several years to bring into operation. In the meantime, remote measuring, monitoring, and analysing capabilities will be introduced through a series of small steps. Seafaring is likely remain a critical part of this process. How can maritime academies prepare for the introduction of new technologies that are still at the development stage? How might ship operators find seafarers with the right skills unless they have been trained? How will crew managers supply the right mix of capabilities unless they have experience in the latest equipment? IHS Maritime and Trade will use the opportunity of this year’s SMM, the home of maritime technology, to discuss the interaction between technology and the seafarer. Shipping is fully committed to evolving technology, however the industry recognises the needs of the human element. Will technology sweep seafarers into the pages of maritime history or will re-skilled seafarers be a part of the evolution? Join IHS Maritime and Trade to seek a solution.

 


2:00 – 3:30 PM

Fuel compliance to 2020 clinic

Following on from the closed round table the IHS Maritime & Trade team will look at what options will be open to ship owners if IMO’s MEPC agrees in October to push for a global sulphur cap of 0.5%? Barely any scrubbers have yet been installed on ships, engine builders are waiting, some will consider continuing with 3.5% sulphur fuels regardless. Shipping is an industry in paralysis. IHS Maritime & Trade will host a clinic at which we provide an overview of the existing position, identify the options available if the date chosen is 2020 or 2022, and offer takeaways to enable robust decision-making when MEPC makes its own position clear.

 


4:15 – 5:30 PM

Small data clinic

Attend our small data clinic to learn from our partners, what solutions are available and resource that will allow you to focus on data sets that matter and how you equate these too cost savings. We will invite all our experts/Partners to join us for our clinic where the ship owner/manager/operator can approach you directly to discuss their challenges and any questions they have around this complicated topic and area of uncertainty.
