Special Issue "Maritime Safety"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 April 2020.

Interests: navigational safety; maritime traffic management; e-nav; MASS; maritime safety
After the disastrous event of M/V Titanic, many concerns regarding maritime safety have arisen, and the discussion continuous on to this day. The reason why safety of maritime is so important today, is because most trade is done through shipping of materials by ships, and the safety of it cannot be ignored. Thus, safety on water has been a big issue for decades.
Due to advances in technology today, new developments such as Smart ship, Vessel Traffic Service technology, e-navigation technology, and MASS(Maritime Autonomous Surface Ship) have been achieved. But regardless of how innovative these developments are, they should also be considered for safety on water. In case of MASS, the level of safety around ships was previously determined by humans, but the actor for determination would be change to computers now. Therefore, basic data accumulation and research on maritime safety are essential factors to take into account.
We have chosen “Maritime Safety” as the special issue. This issue invites researchers and scientist involved in related studies to step forward with their research and share their findings and opinions with the vast audience.
