|Calling all Mariners: AUSMARINE opens Thursday|
|Thursday, 18 November 2010 10:04|
A gentle reminder from Baird Events, the organisers of AUSMARINE 2010, that the Exhibition opens at the Perth Convention Exhibition Centre at 9:45am next Thursday, November 23.
While the exhibition, which runs for three days, until Saturday, November 25, has a large range of exhibits to interest commercial and government mariners of all kinds, there are two important and thought provoking seminars. Both invite serious industry participants without charge.
Anyone participating in either or both seminars is almost certain to learn much of interest and value and to make some useful contacts.
The programme for the seminars follows below.
â€śAustralia and the Indian Ocean: Great Opportunities, Big Challengesâ€ť
Tuesday, November 23, from 0845 to 1300hrs. Venue: PCEC Meeting Room 7, Level 2.
The seminar is hosted by the Australian National Centre for Ocean Resources and Security (ANCORS) at the University of Wollongong. It is convened by Professor Sam Bateman, Professorial Research Fellow at ANCORS and co-author of the recent report â€śOur western front â€“ Australia and the Indian Oceanâ€ť for the Australian Strategic Policy Institute (ASPI).
Australia should be giving greater attention to the Indian Ocean. Australia is a major stakeholder in this ocean, including its security and stability. The country has a larger area of maritime jurisdiction in the ocean than any other Indian Ocean country. Australiaâ€™s greatest challenges, and perhaps also opportunities, concerning border security, offshore sovereignty and sovereign rights are in the Indian Ocean.
Session 1 â€“ The Geo-Political Setting
Session 2 â€“ Key Maritime Issues
â€śMarine Challenges 2010â€ť
Wednesday, November 24, from 0830 to 1630hrs. Venue: PCEC Meeting Room 7, Level 2.
This high-quality, highly-informative seminar will be hosted by Baird Publications in association with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science & Technology (IMarEST), with the following programme:
