Extending this informative symposium to a second day after overwhelming interest from presenters at the first symposium (Nov. 2012), ISSSAMOR II will return to the Holiday Inn Capitol, Washington, DC on December 3-4, 2013.|
The primary objective of the symposium is to provide a forum to discuss and exchange information for the enhancement of the safety and security of the Arctic environment and global maritime assets, including the protection of the maritime environment and its resources, as well as the people and vessels who traverse the waters of the world.
The secondary objective is to promote collaboration on science and technology to further Arctic and maritime awareness through increases in the capability of systems, both terrestrial and space based, as well as the shared use of the output of existing systems for the good of all.
Throughout the course of this one-day symposium, panel discussion, presentations, and Q & A sessions will examine the complete cycle of knowledge from requirements generation to tasking, seeking, collection, fusion and analysis, and decision-making, using automated aids to decision-making and dissemination.
The tertiary objective is to develop short- and long-term recommendations for future action items, and to produce an edited volume of symposium proceedings.
While our program agenda is currently under development, we anticipate a full two-day slate of presentations on the enhancement of the safety and security of the Arctic environment and global maritime assets. The technical and policy topics to be addressed will include the protection of the maritime environment and its resources, as well as the people and vessels who traverse the waters of the world.
Currently, confirmed speakers include:
Dr. John T. Oliver - USCG HQ
CDR Jeremy Wright - NOAA Arctic Ops
Bill Jefferies - Northern Watch
Dr. Irene Farquhar - Robotic Architect. for Comms & Sensors
Prof. Guy Thomas - C-SIGMA for Arctic Ops
