ICERS12
THE 12th INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON ENGINE ROOM SIMULATORS
November 19-20, 2015 @Tuzla, Istanbul
Istanbul Technical University, Maritime Faculty

The International Conference on Engine Room Simulators (ICERS) aim to support
the activities of the International Maritime Lecturers Association (IMLA) by
providing an interactive forum for the international maritime engine room simulator
community. ICERS seeks to achieve this aim by promoting international contact
and co-operation between engine room simulator operators, researchers,
commercial simulator manufacturers and courseware developers, software
publishers, relevant government administrations, international and national
maritime organisations, marine engineers and shipping companies. At the heart
of ICERS are the academic staff and trainers world-wide who seek to support
STCW Convention, and to further develop the competencies and professionalism
of marine engineers, through the use of simulator technology.

The local organizing committee invites you to the 12th International Conference
on Engine Room Simulators (ICERS 12). ICERS 12 will be held from November
19th, 2015 to November 20th, 2015 at the Istanbul Technical University Maritime
Faculty (ITUMF), Istanbul, Turkey. The conference will be organized in partnership
with the Turkish Chamber of Marine Engineers.

ICERS12 intends to be a global forum for researchers and engineers to present
and discuss recent ideas about engine room simulators as well as solutions to
problems that showcases new development on ERS in all forms whether it be full
mission, full task, part-task or desk-top PC based. The aim of ICERS 12 is to
provide a venue and opportunity for the Engine Room Simulator (ERS) community
including developers, manufacturers, providers, educators, trainers, publishers
and everybody with keen interest on ERS to present their knowledge,
experiences, views, research results, and products in a global forum with crossdisciplinary
interests to bridge the knowledge gap and promote research esteem.
The ICERS12 will provide an international forum to address all major topics of
current and prospective interest in Engine Room Simulator Research and
Development. In addition to scientific seminars, a wide range of social programs
including city tours and visits to historical places will be available.

The Local Organizing Committee also encourages companies and institutions to
showcase their modern products and equipment in the conference area.
