Digital Ship is excited to be returning to Athens – for the 12th year in a row. We have once again developed the programme to reflect important evolutions in the global shipping market, and again we expect over 250 of the region’s leading maritime experts to be joining us. I hope you will be able to join us.

The last few years have seen significant advancements in maritime technology. Maritime communications is changing - with the advent, for example, of new satellite designs and capacity leading to HTS. Recent technology developments in IT have opened new horizons for the maritime industry. The industrial Internet concept, connecting machines and using automated data analytics along with domain expertise to optimise operations and maintenance, has already created significant value in many industries, like power generation and commercial aviation, and is now becoming a reality for the maritime industry.

How is the industry adapting to these new technologies and making the most of them? How can shipping companies utilise these developments best to increase operational efficiency and – perhaps most importantly - what do they mean to the crew? Terms like “Big Data” and “Intelligent Operations” make lots of promises in terms of the benefits the industry can expect to derive, but what do they really mean?

Digital Ship Athens 2014will evaluate recent developments and trends and hope to trigger discussion and debate on how these can make our industry smarter, safer and more sustainable.
