Maritime Risk Symposium 2023
Student Poster Competition

CALL FOR PAPERS

The State University of New York Maritime College will host the 2023 Maritime Risk Symposium, November 14-16, 2023.  This is an annual event where professionals from industry, government, and academia discuss risks to the Maritime Transportation System. 

This year’s event will focus on offshore energy risks, including supply chain disruptors, renewable energy, and emerging technology in the Maritime Transportation System.

 

The Maritime Risk Symposium Directors invite graduate and undergraduate students to participate in this year's Maritime Risk Symposium Student Research Poster Competition. Posters will depict research done by the student or students with the guidance of a faculty advisor.  The research could include field work, interviews, literature reviews, emerging technology, or other methods of examining risk factors in the maritime domain.  Poster Research will, in general, identify a gap or problem area, evaluate possible solutions or way ahead, and outline future actions, policy steps, or research needed for continued advancement.  The major panels for this year’s Maritime Risk Symposium are:

                                         

  • Calculating Offshore Energy Risks 

  • Offshore Energy and Cybersecurity 

  • Offshore Energy Port Infrastructure Risks

  • Subsea and Surface Infrastructure Standards

  • Maritime Autonomy and Technology 

  • Wind farm Impacts on the Marine Environment

 

While we invite applicants to submit research presentations specific to these tracks, we encourage creativity and will consider all applications that address maritime risk topics.  Poster authors may attend in person or submit their posters virtually. 

Important Dates:

  1. October 23rd, 2023:  Submit an abstract or Poster Title to indicate intent to participate

  2. November 3rd, 2023:  Final posters emailed to Andrew.E.Tucci42@gmail.com

  3. November 14th, 2023:  MRS begins.  Poster presentations are tentatively scheduled for 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. on the 14th.

 

To submit an abstract, draft poster title, or for specific questions, please contact Andrew Tucci at Andrew.E.Tucci42@gmail.com.

Research Expectations 

Posters will depict research done by the student or students, generally with the guidance of a faculty advisor.  The research could include interviews, literature reviews, an explanation of emerging technology, policy analysis, or other methods of examining risk factors in the maritime domain.

Poster Research will, in general, identify a gap or problem area, evaluate possible solutions or way ahead, and outline future actions, policy steps, or research needed for continued advancement.

Evaluation Criteria

The contest judges will evaluate the posters for their scholarship, innovation, visual display, and verbal presentation, among other criteria. 

Poster presentations typically include a mix of text graphics, data, images, and other material to illustrate the area of interest. Visual appeal and creativity in format are important in helping others understand your research.

Presentation of Posters 

  • Student authors will display their posters, either live or virtually, on the evening of Tuesday, November 14, 2023.  Instructions for the presentation format will be provided prior to that date. 

  • Students will provide a ~ 10 minute presentation of their work and address follow-on questions.

Awards

  • Authors of all accepted poster contests submissions will receive a Certificate of Participation.

  • The authors of the top submissions will receive a Certificate of Award and a MRS 2023 Challenge Coin.
