Perspectives on safety presented at ISSAV and ESWC 2019
Experts and researchers from around the world assembled at Hanaholmen Cultural Centre to present and discuss their views and findings during two safety-themed events held over three days in September, as Aalto University hosted ISSAV and ESWC 2019.
The International Seminar on Safety and Security of Autonomous Vessels (ISSAV) focused on on exchanging knowledge about key safety and security challenges and opportunities in the context of autonomous vessels and the autonomous maritime ecosystem. Keynote speakers for the event were Pierre C Sames from DNV GL, Richard Balzano from the United States Maritime Administration and Wärtsilä's Vesa Marttinen.
The European STAMP Workshop and Conference (ESWC) focused on applications and studies related to the Systems-Theoretic Accident Model and Processes (STAMP), a systems-thinking approach to engineering safer systems. ESWC keynote speeches were given by John Thomas from MIT and Sanna Sonninen from Finnpilot Pilotage.
