The Australian Maritime College and AMC Search are excited to announce the 2023 International Conference on Maritime Autonomy and Remote Navigation as a new addition to AMC Search’s Winterfest Autonomous Maritime Systems’ activity.


Addressing the theme ‘Driving Forward Autonomy in the Maritime Industry’ the Conference program will be designed to promote discussion about breakthroughs, challenges, and progression of autonomous systems in the maritime industry.


The autonomous and remotely navigated shipping industry is fast growing. Numerous trials have already been conducted on commercial ships. There are many different concepts and applications for maritime autonomy, which could greatly benefit industry, ranging from smart bridges to unmanned bridges operated from remote operation centres.


Located at the Australian Maritime College in Launceston, Tasmania, attendees can see autonomous navigation software in action in our full mission bridge simulators and a technical visit to our Beauty Point campus to see and operate our fleet of uncrewed surface and sub-surface vessels.


There will be two social networking functions at prominent local venues. You will mingle with leaders in maritime autonomy and other stakeholders in a relaxed atmosphere.


Leading maritime industry manufacturers and suppliers will be invited to showcase their latest products and services in the onsite conference tradeshow.




The conference will be held over three (potentially four) days.
