The 3rd IEEE Intl. Maritime Big Data Workshop (MBDW 2022)
The growth of the maritime sector has produced an increase of the global maritime traffic and of the activities exploiting the ocean environment and its resources. Safety and security of maritime navigation remain a concern, like the global societal objective of reducing the environmental impact of maritime activities to pursue a sustainable and inclusive “blue growth”. Technological innovations led to the development of automated monitoring systems and maritime sensors networks, producing a tremendous increase of the maritime data available and opening new avenues to interdisciplinary science-driven maritime operations and policy making. Institutional and industrial initiatives are developing infrastructures for maritime data sharing and offering advanced processing, fusion, and analysis, developing added values products in support of the maritime operational and industrial communities, policy making and informed citizenship.The Maritime Big Data Workshop 2022 is organized under the umbrella of the 23rd IEEE International Conference on Mobile Data Management (MDM 2022). It will be an opportunity for researchers, technology providers, institutions participating in interdisciplinary big data initiatives, and representatives of the operational community, to meet and exchange on research results and innovations in the maritime context. The workshop will welcome the presentation of novel big data computational solutions with application in the maritime context.
