Venue: St. John's, Newfoundland
Ocean Innovation 2006 is proud to present Managing Maritime Emergencies, the fourth installation of Canada's foremost oceans conference and exhibition. The OI series has developed a reputation for introducing provocative topics and world-class presentations on the latest innovations for ocean exploitation and management while maintaining a focus on uniting suppliers and buyers in a networking environment. The 2006 event will include a highly focused three-day schedule, incorporating a day of scheduled tours, followed by a two-day conference and exhibition in historic St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada. With a large international contingent, this event is proving its worth to the global oceans community and placing increasing focus on the innovation provided by Canadian suppliers, both commercial and academic.
Managing Maritime Emergencies will feature four plenary sessions in single-stream format covering the following topics: (1) Understanding Maritime Emergencies, (2) Technologies for Collecting and Presenting Decision-Critical Information, (3) Evacuation, Rescue and Recovery, and (4) Emergency Management Systems and Support Tools.
Ocean Innovation 2006 will be of interest to owners and operators of marine passenger vessels, offshore oil production facilities and support vessels, supporting equipment and service suppliers, as well as regulatory and government departments with responsibility for maritime emergency management. This event will also be of interest to naval architects, ocean engineers and others involved in offshore design, emergency management training and the study of human performance in the maritime setting. OI-06 will look at some of the most common maritime emergencies, how they develop, best practices for mitigation, and examine some of the latest innovations for effectively managing them.
