Almost 200 delegates from across the world are gathered at the
Grand Hotel Amrâth Kurhaus in Den Haag, The Netherlands this week
to hear about the latest developments in maritime training based
on state-of-the-art simulation technology.
Kongsberg Group, the Norway-headquartered international
knowledge-based company serving businesses in the maritime,
defense, remote weapons and digitalization sectors, is hosting
the three-day Kongsberg UC2017 International Maritime Simulation
User Conference designed to bring attendees up to date on recent
and planned developments in digitalization, maritime training,
navigation technology, simulation systems for engine operation
and cargo handling, and the use of virtual reality in maritime
training, as well as to look at how human factors impact
simulation training and assess how automated systems stack up
against their manual counterparts.
Expert conference speakers from Kongsberg Group include
Tone-Merete Hansen, SVP Maritime Simulation at Kongsberg Digital;
Joern Seglem, SVP Digital Platform, Kongsberg Digital; and
Christian Moller, SVP Maritime Simulation, Kongsberg Digital. The
guest speaker list includes Catina Geselschap, Project Manager,
Heerema Maritime Contractors Academy and Henrik Pahlm, MSc,
Technical Lecturer at Chalmers University of Technology, as well
as a broad spectrum of other presenters from across the globe
from institutions and organizations such as the Royal Norwegian
Naval Academy; the US Army Corps of Engineers; the Maritime
Academy Holland; the Canadian Maritime Simulation and Resource
Centre; and the Royal Australian Navy.
With a full plenary program matched with a range of parallel
sessions and a digitalization workshop, the Kongsberg UC2017
Maritime Simulation User Conference promises to be the major
simulation-based training event of the year.
