Convened by Transportation Research Board in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard, the 18th Biennial National Harbor Safety Committee Conference will be held from June 13-15, 2022 in Boston, MA. Titled “Maritime Strong: Navigating Diverse Growth and Change,” the event focuses on promising practices, innovation, and technology to address critical safety and security issues related to waterways management. The Massachusetts Bay Harbor Safety Committee is the lead host for the conference.
The conference will include panel sessions, keynote addresses from high-level officials, and networking opportunities for waterways stakeholders and service providers from across our nation. The panel sessions are designed to be highly interactive, allowing an ongoing conversation between the presenters and the attendees. Topics to be covered within the conference include: federal waterways policy and regulatory issues, competing usage of harbors and waterways, automation and autonomous technologies, cyber and security issues, coastal resilience and port infrastructure, maritime training and workforce development, harbor safety committee best practices, lessons learned from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, and more.
