EAAW VIII at a glance
The Engine As A Weapon
(EAAW) series of international symposia is the leading forum which aims
to unite the marine and combat systems communities to resolve the
integration challenges of current and future naval design. EAAW VIII aims
to further explore the vision of fully integrated engineering systems
and will take place in London on Tuesday 2 - Wednesday 3 July 2019.
Over 100 expert participants
Over 20 peer reviewed technical papers
Panel Debate on Artificial Intelligence
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) approved by IMarEST
Speakers' Corner for further debate and discussion
Excellent networking opportunities including organised reception
NEW for 2019 - EAAW VIII will be held in parallel to IMarEST's MECSS 2019 and will hold joint sessions on Day One
Who Attends EAAW?
Navies, commercial and military ship operators, designers and shipbuilders, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, universities and other defence related organisations. Click here to view attendee analysis from EAAW VII International Symposium.
MECSS is a highly relevant and informed conference that directs improvement to ship electrical and control system safety MECSS 2017 Delegate
A shared vision: EAAW VIII and MECSS 2019
New platforms in both the naval and commercial arenas need sensors, internal systems and personnel to work in unison to deliver the capability expected. We can no longer look at boundaries between allies, platforms and departments as an excuse for not maximising the delivery of maritime capability. The ship systems need to be safe, efficient, reliable, protected from cyber-attack and work as a single overall system. The blurring of system boundaries will require revised departmental boundaries, new manning and training philosophies and new operating procedures.
The clear synergies between EAAW VIII and the Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference, two of IMarEST’s seminal Learned Society events, will be explored during Day One, with Day Two splitting into two parallel sessions focussing on topics specific to each event. At the end of Day One, a Plenary Debate involving all participants will discuss today’s challenges. In addition, the timings for the refreshments and the networking programme will be synchronised for both events throughout the two days ensuring maximum interaction between all participants.
What is IMarEST?
IMarEST is the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology; the international professional body and learned society for all marine professionals. With over 20,000 members in 128 countries, the IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, marine scientists and marine technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body. The Institute offers a wide range of services, including publishing The Marine Professional magazine and three technical journals including the Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology (JMET), which disseminates and reports scientific, operational and applied research issues and research advances relating to all aspects of marine engineering and technology. All papers are peer-reviewed and included in the Thomson Reuters JCR®; Taylor & Francis publish the Institute’s journals and further details can be found here.
The Institute is also a Non-Governmental Organisation with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and has observer/consultative status at other non-governmental organisations worldwide; it is a nominated and licensed body of the Engineering Council (UK), a member of the Science Council and has significant links with many other maritime organisations.
The Institute organises learned society events for its members and the wider industry, these include: the Engine As A Weapon International Symposium (EAAW); Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS) and the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) incorporating the International Ship Controls Systems Symposium (iSCSS).
