Stability and Safety of Ships and Ocean Conference was organised in an online format from 7th to 11th June 2021.
The event focused on established disciplines and main topics in maritime safety, so as to maximize the immediate benefits and encourage broader participation and cooperation from industries, governments, and academia.
Over 100 papers on topics of ship safety and stability were presented during the conference, demonstrating the innovative approach to safe design of ships.
University of Strathclyde, organizer of the event, and SINTEF Ocean had an opportunity to present novel developments related to safety analysis and assurance of autonomous ships with their latest research works “Ships traffic encounter scenarios generation using sampling and clustering techniques“ and “Improving safety of interactions between conventional and autonomous ships“.
Both papers showed results from the AUTOSHIP project.
Moreover, Prof. Gerasimos Theotokatos (from USTRAT) and Mr. Ørnulf Jan Rødseth (from SINTEF) coordinated the conference theme on Cyber-physical systems and autonomous vessels.
