MECSS 2019 At A Glance
Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS) has rapidly
become a recognised forum within the marine industry. At the heart of
the technical debate is how safety is instilled throughout the
interaction between people, processes, commercial standard equipment and
plant – all of which are becoming ever more sophisticated. MECSS 2019 aims to further explore ‘effective system integration’ and will take
place in London on Tuesday 2 – Wednesday 3 July 2019.
Over 100 expert participants
Over 20 peer reviewed technical papers
Panel Debate on Artificial Intelligence
Continuing Professional Development (CPD) approved by IMarEST
Speakers' Corner for further debate and discussion
Excellent networking opportunities including organised reception
NEW for 2019 - MECSS 2019 will be held in parallel to IMarEST's EAAW VIII and will hold joint sessions on Day One
Who attends MECSS?
At MECSS 2019, you will meet and network with senior international electrical power and technical engineers from the marine electrical control supply chain, design and technical authorities, merchant, commercial and navy industry personnel, ship owners and operators, class societies, safety assurance providers, automation systems manufacturers plus consultants and academia.

An unrivalled opportunity to discuss multidisciplinary projects and technologies EAAW VII Delegate
A shared vision: MECSS 2019 and EAAW VIII
New platforms in both the commercial and naval arenas need sensors, internal systems and personnel to work in unison to deliver the capability expected. We can no longer look at boundaries between allies, platforms and departments as an excuse for not maximising the delivery of maritime capability. The ship systems need to be safe, efficient, reliable, protected from cyber-attack and work as a single overall system. The blurring of system boundaries will require revised departmental boundaries, new manning and training philosophies and new operating procedures.
The clear synergies between MECSS 2019 and the Engine As A Weapon International Symposia, two of IMarEST’s seminal Learned Society events, will be explored during Day One, with Day Two splitting into two parallel sessions focussing on topics specific to each event. At the end of Day One, a Plenary Debate involving all participants will discuss today’s challenges. In addition, the timings for the refreshments and the networking programme will be synchronised for both events throughout the two days ensuring maximum interaction between all participants.
What is IMarEST?
IMarEST is the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology; the international professional body and learned society for all marine professionals. With over 20,000 members in 128 countries, the IMarEST is the first Institute to bring together marine engineers, marine scientists and marine technologists into one international multi-disciplinary professional body. The Institute offers a wide range of services, including publishing The Marine Professional magazine and three technical journals including the Journal of Marine Engineering and Technology (JMET), which disseminates and reports scientific, operational and applied research issues and research advances relating to all aspects of marine engineering and technology. All papers are peer-reviewed and included in the Thomson Reuters JCR®; Taylor & Francis publish the Institute’s journals and further details can be found here.
The Institute is also a Non-Governmental Organisation with consultative status at the International Maritime Organization (IMO) and has observer/consultative status at other non-governmental organisations worldwide; it is a nominated and licensed body of the Engineering Council (UK), a member of the Science Council and has significant links with many other maritime organisations.
The Institute organises learned society events for its members and the wider industry, these include: the Engine As A Weapon International Symposium (EAAW); Marine Electrical and Control Systems Safety Conference (MECSS) and the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) incorporating the International Ship Controls Systems Symposium (iSCSS).
MECSS 2019 Technical Advisory Committee:
The Technical Advisory Committee are a group of experts formed from
industry, academia and the military with the aim to develop and steer
the technical programme for the event.
