Trondheim, Norway
The International Maritime and Port Technology and Development Conference (MTEC) is arranged every second year and alternating between Singapore and Trondheim.

The international Conference on Maritime Autonomous Surface Ships (ICMASS) has been held once before, in 2018 in Busan, Korea. In 2019 it will be held together with MTEC and will host a special track on autonomous ships and vessels systems and technology.

The conference is organized by SINTEF Ocean and NTNU in Norway, co-organized by MPA, SMI, and parts of Maritime Singapore in Singapore. Partners from the International Network for Autonomous Ships co-arrange the track on autonomous transport systems. The Research Council of Norway is supporting the conference.

The main tracks will be:

  • Maritime Digitalisation

  • Autonomous Systems and Vessels

  • Green Shipping
