The conference provides a forum for transportation researchers, scientiscts, engineers, navigators, ergonomists, and policy-makers with an interest in maritime researches.

The Conference will be held in Gdynia, the one of the youngest Polish cities, which is reflected in its appearance and atmosphere. Its bustling centre and harbour are visited mainly in the summer, due to its maritime location and the long sandy beaches. Throughout the entire year, it plays the role of one of Poland’s major seaports and a major shipbuilding area. Apart from the shipyard, Gdynia is a thriving centre of business, boasting the status of the most prosperous Polish city. Its close vicinity to two other towns, Gdansk and Sopot, which together form an urban agglomeration, helps to develop commercial activity.

We are waiting for the paper abstracts and your registration between 1th of September and 1st of November 2020.
