World ECDIS Day 2019, a one-day conference in Hamburg, will take place on 25th September and will look at insights and debate on ‘Digital Culture Beyond ECDIS’. The challenges, solutions, and advantages of digitization will be addressed with representatives of different stakeholder groups.

World ECDIS Day brings together key stakeholders who are playing an important role in developing the future of marine electronic navigation. As a not-for-profit initiative, WED’s goal is to provide a forum for individuals engaged in the e-Navigation industry to openly and candidly discuss the challenges and opportunities in the sector.

WED’s 2019 programme, now available at www.world-ecdis-day.com, will cover key developments in e-Navigation, including the digitization of navigation, compliance, voyage optimization, and risk assessment. ECDIS-related discussions, seminars, and workshops will also be open to attendees. Panel discussion will be moderated by Capt. Paul Hailwood

The first World ECDIS Day took place in Hamburg, Germany in 2015; aiming to be the only dedicated conference dealing with ECDIS, Electronic Navigational Charts and Digitalisation. The event is an industry initiative which brought together stakeholders involved in ENC production and its use.
