MECSS 2017 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 2017
aims to further explore ‘effective system integration’ and will take
place in Glasgow from 22 – 23 November 2017.

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); the learned society events are organised by FIGS Events Limited on behalf of IMarEST.
