DigiMariner IIFebruary 26, 2021 10:00 AM – 3:45 PM ET on Maritime TV
A dedicated team of alumni, led by the USMMA Class Of ’69 and known as the "Group of 69”, has initiated an opportunity for all alumni and industry thought leaders to positively impact the Academy and the entire US Merchant Marine community by proactively developing maritime digital technology education for dissemination within the Kings Point curriculum in preparation for the 4th Industrial Revolution. This is a call-to-action for every Kings Point alumnus and maritime professional who plays a role in the evolving digitalization of shipping or is involved within an operating maritime organization which has digital competencies, to participate in this initiative. The group has enlisted and are working with the USMMA Academic Dean and faculty to implement this program. To launch this effort, the group is working with Maritime TV to produce a series of virtual ‘mini-conferences’, the first one dedicated to Maritime Transportation which took place on November 18, 2020 and the second one dedicated to Marine Engineering which took place February 26, 2021. Both were well-attended and the decision has been made to proceed with the third conference in the series, DigiMariner III, currently slated for April 21, 2021. Click here to see first DigiMariner Conferene on Marine Transportation- November 18, 2020. The initial goal is to create an accessible video repository database of educational knowledge regarding the many facets of the digitalization of the shipping for USMMA midshipmen, and eventually all maritime educational institutions and industry professionals. Please note that sponsorship and presenter positions are still available for the April 20, 2021 DigiMariner III Conference.Sponsors will be pre-recorded in a video interview for later playback during the event and provided a copy of the video interview for their own unlimited use.
