A Future with ECDIS seminar
4 - 6 September 2018, SMM Hamburg
Achieve the full benefits of ECDIS with our free technical seminar
To fully realise the potential of ECDIS a ship manager has to be constantly aware of advances in technology that will enhance safety and bring performance benefits. This will involve:
- carrying out detailed risk assessments, surveying equipment, protecting IT and operational equipment and responding to incidents
- developments in auxiliary ECDIS hardware that drive performance improvements
- how developments in satellite communications are enabling the transfer of Big Data
Software and hardware maintenance
- predictive equipment maintenance, IHO updates and regulatory compliance
If you need guidance on any of the above topics and more, join your peers at a free technical seminar to share knowledge, concerns and industry insight with experts from the UK Hydrographic Office.
Designed to help mariners and shipping companies to achieve the full benefits of ECDIS whilst remaining compliant, this seminar will cover a range of subjects with your own questions and comments encouraged throughout the session.
Each seminar starts at 11:00 and ends at 13:00, followed by light refreshments.

The seminars will take in the first floor meeting rooms in Hall 6, the entrance to which can be found adjacent to the Information Point. They will be led by experts from the UK Hydrographic Office, the power behind the ADMIRALTY Maritime Data Solutions, relied upon by mariners for over 200 years.
Presented by Tom Mellor, Head of OEM Technical Support & Digital Standards at UKHO and Chairman of the IHO ENC working group, the seminar provides impartial guidance and covers a range of topics including emerging cyber threats to ECDIS.
Tom will share UKHO knowledge and insight to help inform your decisions regarding digital navigation, specifically the use of ECDIS. This interactive seminar allows you to share your own views and concerns, offering practical advice, supported by case studies.
The seminar is the same each day, please register for one only. After the two hour seminar, you are welcome to join your industry colleagues and UKHO experts for light refreshments.
Who should attend?
This seminar is for anyone involved in the safe and compliant navigation in the shipping industry, including fleet managers and superintendents, ship owners, regulators and auditors, particularly those from shipping companies who have already implemented ECDIS.
I was reluctant to leave the office and come to the seminar but now I am so pleased I did. The practical advice and technical information Tom shared at the seminar will save me some real complications.
Having attended today’s seminar, I will be updating my ISM/SMS immediately with the correct ECDIS data check procedures and audible alarms.
The seminar was innovative in terms of the detailed information regarding ECDIS implementation, I look forward to the next seminar for a vital update.
