MARSIM 2015 Conference

Training and Quality Manager Aleksejs Bogdanecs and Head of Study Department Anton Voytkevich attended the MARSIM 2015 conference, from 8-11 September 2015 at Newcastle University, UK. The conference theme was “Ship Manoeuvrability and Maritime Simulation”.

The 65 papers were presented in categories: Hydrodynamic Modeling, Marine Simulation, Maritime Training, and Operational Practice. Aleksejs Bogdanecs and Anton Voytkevich presented paper “Key Performance Indicators for Assessing Simulator Task Scenarios”. The work involve more than 400 surveys from students participated in courses related to four departments – navigational, engineering, safety and tanker. The results of this still ongoing research will clarify the connection between simulator task and the quality of mastering the subject.

The aim of the MARSIM 2015 conference is to bring together industry wide expertise from all sectors related to the manoeuvering and simulation of ships and floating structures. The objective is to provide a platform for the dissemination of state-of-the-art research and current practice while at the same time nurturing a network for collaboration and commerce.

The MARSIM conference series brings together subject experts and distinguished speakers to discuss and disseminate technical and topical issues, while exhibitors showcase the latest in maritime simulator technologies and training products.
