The International Conference on Maritime IT Convergence (ICMIC) aims to promote convergence activities of maritime, terrestrial and aerial communications as well as related advanced wireless communications. Recognizing that maritime communications will usually involve ship-to-ship and ship-to-shore communication, maritime ICT technologies will bring some mature but still evolving terrestrial wired/wireless communication technologies to its own use for future smart maritime communications. More specifically, the conference will focus on addressing challenges of maritime communications with ICT convergence or advanced future communications over various industrial sectors, academia and practice engineers. The conference will include keynote sessions, invited special sessions and technical paper sessions. You are invited to submit papers in all areas of maritime communications, applications for ICT convergence, technologies, or advanced future communications.
