International Harbour Masters’ Association invites presentations for 2018 congress

The International Harbour Masters’ Association (IHMA) is pleased to invite interested participants to submit a 400-600 word abstract of a proposed paper for the 11th IHMA Congress, to be held in London on 25 to 28 June 2018.

Addressing the theme ‘Ports – Essential for Safe, Efficient and Secure Global Trade’ the Congress program will be designed to appeal to all those responsible for the safe, secure and efficient conduct of maritime operations in ports and industry organisations working with, or within ports across all levels of the industry spectrum.

This is a good opportunity to put forward ideas, case studies and technical research on the innovations that will promote safe, efficient and secure maritime logistics, improve cooperation between ports and ships, develop best practice, and raise global standards for the safety, security and efficiency of ports.

A detailed list of potential topics can be found on the IHMA website. Deadline for submissions is 19 May 2017, authors will be notified on 7 August 2017.
