Each table can host up to 10 participants, and delegates will be invited to sign up on the morning of the conference (1 March) to the roundtable they wish to attend, via our interactive WebApp.

The content in these interactive Round Table sessions will be focused on solutions and business strategy and they will last for 1h 45min total, with the discussion itself lasting one hour, followed by a summary from each table to the whole room.

Confirmed tables:

Table 1:
Practical insights into managing risk and ensuring higher resilience against cyber security risks.

Shipping company representatives are invited to join with respected subject matter experts in an open assessment of the current trends in maritime cyber security threats, and how they impact the maritime industry.
Co-hosted by: Michael Owen, VP Business Capture & Development – Maritime, Marlink and Svend Lykke Larsen, Sales & Business Development Director, Europe, Palantir, with contribution from Phil Tinsley, Maritime Security Manager, BIMCO

Table 2:
HTS satellites and growing data communications will change the game

2016 marked the entry into service of HTS satellites with a major maritime focus. Ever-increasing data communications needs and the massive launch of new generation High Throughput Satellite (HTS) systems are expected to drive the growth in the market.
Hosted by: Capucine Fargier, Senior Consultant, Euroconsult

Table 3:
In-Orbit Demonstration Programme

Low-cost, fast-track access to space to drive product and service innovation - Testing in space can help de-risk your business service and technology.  In this session, we will explore how satellite operators, service providers and customers in the maritime domain could take advantage of In-Orbit Demonstration opportunities to accelerate to ‘proof of concept’ stage and develop new technologies and services for the digital maritime revolution.
Hosted by: Nick Lambert, Maritime Domain Expert, Satellite Applications Catapult & Florian Deconinck, Advanced Concept Lead, Satellite Applications Catapult

Table 4:
Enterprise social media

Enterprise social media are distinct from traditional communication technologies often used in today’s organizations because those who use them can see conversations occurring between others in the organization who are not their communication partners and can distinguish social and work related connections among them.” (Paul M. Leonardi, Marleen Huysman and Charles Steinfield, published on Journal of Computer-Mediated Communication, 2013).

The definition is still current, even considering how fast technology advances. The very successful Slack, the new contender Workplace (by Facebook), well established HipChat and many others are joining older players like Yammer (even Microsoft now has Microsoft Teams), setting a new trend in organisations of all sizes and in all industries. And likely moving into a shipping company near you, perhaps even involving seafarers.
Hosted by: Walter Hannemann, Product Manager, Dualog

Table 5:
Access to and ownership of data

Today's ships have a number of data system on board, e.g. for navigation, engine control and cargo. New equipment, e.g. auxiliaries or compressors also have their own built-in data systems that may not be easily available. In addition, there are a number of off-ship data sources, e.g. from AIS networks, bunkering, ship inspections and so on. For analysis of ship operations and performance it is necessary to have access to good quality data from several sources. The question about access rights and data ownership then arises: Who has the right to acquire and store data from the ship and who has the rights to analysis results? As digitalization increases, these data will represent huge value for owners and for others that have the possibility to do benchmarks or statistical analysis. Who shall reap these benefits?
Hosted by: Ørnulf Jan Rødseth, Senior Scientist, SINTEF Ocean

Table 6:
How do we improve seafarers’ safety and well-being onboard?

At the roundtable, we will try to highlight important elements that define the seafarers’ safety and well-being and we will discuss a prioritization and ranking of such elements.
Hosted by: Lars Knudsen, Partner, Brandemann

Table 7:
Digital transformation in practice

This round table will discuss practical aspects of digitalization of the maritime industry; going from a more traditional industry to a digitized one. What does it take to implement digitalization? What are the different strategies taken by industries to move into the digital space?
Hosted by: Line Clemmensen, Senior Data Scientist, Maersk Line
