ITS Campus, ITS News – After successfully holding the Maritime Safety International Conference (MASTIC) in 2018 and 2020, the Center for Excellence in Science and Technology for Ship Safety and Marine Installation (PUI KEKAL) together with the Department of Marine Engineering, Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS) again held MASTIC to the third time, Saturday (16/7).

The MASTIC 2022 activity, which was held online, was opened directly by the Vice Chancellor IV for Research, Innovation, Cooperation, and ITS Alumni, Dr Bambang Pramujati ST MSc. In his speech, Bambang said, ITS has long been focusing on maritime research.

According to Bambang, the maritime potential in Indonesia is very large, especially since two-thirds of Indonesia’s territory is the ocean. “So the topic of safety in the maritime world is crucial to understand,” he added.

On the same occasion, the Chief Executive of MASTIC 2022 Dr Eng Dhimas Widhi Handani ST MSc said, MASTIC is an international conference held every two years as a forum for educational institutions, researchers, and industry to exchange information and share research results about the latest developments and innovations in Indonesia maritime sector. “Especially in the field of ship operational safety and the maritime industry,” he continued.

In this third event, MASTIC carries the theme Future Challenges for the improvement of Maritime Safety Systems, Marine Operations, and Environment. The online event was attended by more than 500 participants and 60 presenters. “Most of them are students, academics, practitioners, industry, and government agencies,” said the alumnus of Kobe University, Japan.

The International Conference also invited three keynote speakers from Indonesia, Japan, and Singapore. The first speaker was the Director of Navigation of the Directorate General of Sea Transportation, Ir Hengky Angkasawan. He delivered material on E-Navigation and E-pilotage, which is the concept of communication interconnection between ships and land to ensure the safety of ship navigation.

Aside from the material presentation from experts, MASTIC 2022 also invites academics and practitioners to present their innovations in the form of scientific papers in the maritime safety field. “A total of 80 scientific papers have passed a series of rigorous technical selections since last February,” said Dhimas.

The selected presenters came from six countries. Namely Indonesia, Japan, Germany, South Korea, United Arab Emirates, and Timor Leste. “All scientific papers will later be published through the IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science indexed by SCOPUS,” explained Dhimas.

With this international conference, Dhimas hopes that the number of international publications in the maritime safety field from the ITS academic community can increase. “In addition, hopefully, this MASTIC event can contribute more in responding to challenges and opportunities regarding technology in the maritime field,” he concluded.
