Conference goals

The maritime information environment that e-Navigation will develop is not widely understood.  To encourage greater understanding, stimulate thought about e-Navigation’s application to North American needs and promote the identification of specific actions to implement e-Navigation the Conference will:

  • Provide a summary of international and national governmental developments and plans.
  • Provide information about ongoing e-Navigation initiatives and test bed activities, to stimulate thought about their applicability to North American issues.
  • Explore specific areas affecting e-Navigation to identify steps which should be taken to insure the system can function effectively.
  • Formulate specific recommendations regarding the implementation and development of e-Navigation
