The 1st International Conference on Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship (ICMASS 2018) is the first international conference which presents cutting edge works on autonomous ships to both academic and industry researchers. ICMASS addresses current research and academic activities focused on the development of Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (MASS) technology and knowledge from all around the world. This conference is arranged as a part of the International Network for Autonomous Ship (INAS – http://www.autonomous-ship.org) co-operation. This will be a yearly conference, where the second is planned for Trondheim, Norway, November 2019.
The conference will facilitate high-level interaction and information exchange among MASS researchers and industrial developers. It will provide an interactive forum for discussion on recent and ongoing developments, key issues and challenges, and practices related to innovative applications in MASS systems. Researchers and practitioners from all over the world, from academia, industry, and authorities are invited to present their perspectives. In addition to regular scientific and technical papers, industrial practice reports are welcome from practitioners.
