The Revolution is changing.The 2014 conference, being the 4th in the series of this ECDIS Revolution, continued to demonstrate there is still much to be done and learnt as the maritime industry manoeuvres through this transition from paper to electronic charts. Feedback from earlier conferences while tied into a strong agenda and experienced speakers led to a full two day programme which regularly fell behind time due to the extended debates which transpired after speaker sessions. From lessons learnt in respect to the limited time dedicated to the afternoon workshops where discussion had both positive and negative comments, we will look into the means by which to give more time to delegates to debate the specifics related to ECDIS and HELM in the forthcoming conference. To that end, we are now working on the outline agenda for the 2014 conference which is anticipated to run in London on Tuesday 19 and Wednesday 20 November. Opportunities exists for volunteer speakers although the conference organisers are targetting some key individuals and organisations as part of the continual effort to remain the leaders in this effort of promoting the views and comments of the maritime industry to the regulators. If however you believe you have something beneficial and could contribute to the conference then please don't hesitate to get in touch with us explaining what you could bring forth and discuss. At the same time, sponsors and manufacturers are more than welcome to apply to assist in the promotion of this conference as well as bring equipment to demonstrate to the delegates. As always, our LinkedIn discussion group remains active with debates generated there on matters relating to the use and operation of ECDIS. Visitors may access the group through this link to leave comment and advise their fellow mariners on their views and other areas of thought as the world moves into the next era of electronic navigation. This website is available to the manufacturers and training colleges to promote their latest products while also seeing the comments of the users to obtain a better appreciation of the thoughts of their systems from an operators point of view.
