    The Sea is a challenging world where often we have to operate at the limit of human capability. The complexity of this environment is balanced by the richness of its opportunities and we have to address a broad area of expertise as well as multiple sectors and topics to succeed over there; so, in this context, the modern methods of Modelling & Simulation (M&S) represent a strategic science; therefore simulation is the essential investigation tool able to extend our capabilities to study and analyze multidisciplinary problems within virtual interoperable worlds and to experiment new concepts and new strategies. Hence, the Workshop "Simulation and the Sea" focuses on specific issues related to Sea as a resource where to operate effectively and efficiently in the context of port & logistics, maritime navigation & shipping, oil & gas activities, defense and homeland security. From this point of view, Italy and Liguria in particular offer good examples of maritime M&S excellence within Academia and Industry, so Genoa is the ideal framework for this workshop. Indeed Liguria has always been particularly active at "sea side" in terms of simulation according to its peculiarities and to the presence of Excellence Centers in Marine Sector, Ship Yard Industry, Naval Defense, Port Terminals for cargo and passengers as well as Training Service and R&D.


    The "Sim & Sea, the Simulation and the Sea" Workshop Call for Proposals solicits contributions on various applications of marine M&S, which include, but are not limited, to the following topics:
  • Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Simulation
