Future Maritime Technologies Success

Emerging Digital Maritime Cities

Ensuring Maritime Security in the Mediterranean and Atlantic regions

  • Mr Bhavesh Kansal

My abstract discusses the maritime security in Mediterranean and Atlantic regions with surface domain and platform based on Naval architecture or ship design. So, firstly workmanship should be of commercial marine quality. Any defect arising during the construction process must be rectified to the satisfaction of the surveyor before covering it with paint, cement or any other composition. This is done to prevent any catastrophic failure in later stages. Secondly, the standard used for fabrication/construction should be intimated to the attending representative of the approving classification society beforehand. Thirdly,the free edges of cut-outs, hatch corners etc. should be free from notches and must be properly prepared. Fourthly,Curve forming or fairing (by linear or spot heating) has to be carried out using approved procedures and at last excessive force shouldn’t be used during the assembly of individual structural components or during the erection of sections. Any major distortions of individual structural components have to be corrected before proceeding for further assembly.

Emerging New Digital “Smart Maritime Cities”: Cultural Encounters and Novel Technological Issues

  • Prof.ssa Agata Lo Tauro

Author Agata Lo Tauro

Hybridization, transculturation, assimilation and cultural change and heritage preservation are crucial concepts in our society. In broad terms, they show how cultural international networks between different social groups are powerful indicators of the emergence of new societies and novel humanitarian and “harmonic” strategies. They rise spontaneously or triggered by external events, but the picture is not so simplistic: it is worth to address shades and variables in order to characterize certain contexts, in which these processes took place by questioning the nature of Novel Innovative Networks and Novel “Smart Maritime Cities”. Recognizing their presence/absence in foreign objects, skills, ideas as well as in the continuity of certain past features, styles and functions will allow a wide analysis of the novel technological encounters, going beyond mere chronological schemes and innovative issues. To do so, it is fundamental that different disciplines, such as science and novel technologies for novel geospatial analysis and geomatics contribute to the debate, discussing their own subjects and their methodologies, providing their own insight.

This is a work-in-progress.
