Navigating our Digital Waterways – 2022 Digital@Sea North America Conference


Digital@Sea North America 2022 will be held on two days, May 11-12, 2022, in the heart of the vibrant port of Tampa. The conference will focus upon the broadening application of the maritime information environment that digitalization is creating and the many initiatives that have advanced since the last North American conference in November of 2019. There is much news to share.

Presentations will address digitalization and implementation plans by key stakeholders including key Canadian and U.S. government agency representatives, technology experts, mariners, international coastal administrators, and creators of maritime safety information. The transition from paper to electronic charts, the introduction of S-100, and the opportunities presented by technology, such as the VHF Data Exchange System (VDES), are few examples of the topics to be presented and discussed.

The conference is hosted by RTCM and organized under the IALA Digital@Sea series. The IALA format guidelines encourage interaction between speakers and attendees, giving all attendees the opportunity to contribute to the dialogue.

You should attend this conference if you are interested in knowing how digitalization will impact you and your way of operating–and if you want to have a say!
