Mini symposium “MS57 Ship Collision Risk” at the ICOSSAR2021

Mini symposium “MS57 Ship Collision Risk”  at the ICOSSAR2021

As a follow up of the JCSS-Workshop Ship Collision Risk Assessment at COWI early this year,  a Mini Symposium on the same topic will be organized during the ICOSSAR 2021 in Shanghai. Typical key words are collision scenarios, consequence modelling and mitigating measures.  The emphasis will be on statistical and probabilistic models, computer simulation techniques for collision initiation scenarios, models for ship structure interaction during the impact, risk acceptance criteria, practical applications and codification. The intention is to reach an even wider group of people as in Lyngby and to find ways to for further integration of available techniques and approaches.  

For a short period it is still possible to express your interest for a contribution to the symposium.

In that case, please contact one of the organizers.
