The Sea is a challenging world where often we have to operate at the limit of human
capability. The complexity of this environment is balanced by the richness of its opportunities
and we have to address a broad area of expertise as well as multiple sectors and topics to
succeed over there; so, in this context, the modern methods of Modelling & Simulation (M&S)
represent a strategic science; therefore simulation is the essential investigation tool able to
extend our capabilities to study and analyze multidisciplinary problems within virtual
interoperable worlds and to experiment new concepts and new strategies. Hence, the
Workshop "Simulation and the Sea" focuses on specific issues related to Sea as a resource
where to operate effectively and efficiently in the context of port & logistics, maritime
navigation & shipping, oil & gas activities, defense and homeland security. From this point of
view, Italy and Liguria in particular offer good examples of maritime M&S excellence within
Academia and Industry, so Genoa is the ideal framework for this workshop. Indeed Liguria has
always been particularly active at "sea side" in terms of simulation according to its peculiarities
and to the presence of Excellence Centers in Marine Sector, Ship Yard Industry, Naval Defense,
Port Terminals for cargo and passengers as well as Training Service and R&D.
The "Sim & Sea, the Simulation and the Sea" proposes contributions and live
demonstration on various applications of marine M&S, which include, but are not limited, to
the following topics:
Autonomous Underwater Vehicle Simulation
Training & Simulation in Marine Environment
Live, Virtual & Constructive Marine Simulators
M&S in Naval Defense
Marine Virtual Prototyping
Interoperable Naval Simulation
Simulation Based Naval Design
Homeland Security within Marine Domain
Oil and Gas Simulation
Sea and Serious Games
Ship Simulation
Underwater and Surface M&S
Simulation and Sea Keeping
Unmanned Surface Vehicles Simulation
Port and Logistics Simulation
ROV Simulation
Workshop registration is Free and should to be completed before June 1 2014, on Sim & Sea
