Panama Canal Int’l Conference

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

The Panama Canal Authority (ACP) Center for Maritime Training, Research and Development will host the 2009 International Conference on Marine Simulation and Ship Maneuverability (MARSIM) August 17-20. For the first time, MARSIM will be held in Panama City, Panama, where maritime industry leaders, academics and researchers will come together from across the globe to share the latest developments in marine simulation, safety and ship maneuverability, and discuss the progress and anticipated benefits of the Panama Canal Expansion Program.

“The ACP uses simulation technology to enhance the safety of vessel navigation through the Canal and streamline transits for our customers,” said ACP Captain Rogelio Altafulla.

MARSIM will include a number of presentations on marine simulation and ship maneuverability, featuring cutting-edge research simulation studies being conducted by academic institutions in Asia, Europe, North America and Panama. The conference will also showcase simulators used to improve ship maneuvering techniques and highlight the development of procedures to evaluate and improve safe and efficient ship handling. By exposing attendees to the latest in marine simulation technology and research, the ACP aims to advance the shipping industry’s navigational training and educational methods.
