Special Issue "Maritime Traffic Engineering and International Symposium Information on Ships Conference MTE-ISIS 2019"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (29 February 2020).
There are several research studies dealing with ship-to-ship collision investigations. Most of these are focused on costal and open seawaters where AIS empirical data are utilized and collision risk models are created. This Special Issue of JMSE will focus on ship-to-ship collision problems, related to accidents on complicated waterways like port approaches or congested coastal areas where the influence of ship traffic plays major role. The Special Issue will focus on:
- Modelling the risk of collisions in port approach areas,
- Causation accident analysis,
- The human factor in ship-to-ship collisions.
The issue will not be restricted, but will also focus on:
- New methods of modelling the consequences of collisions
- Collisions with offshore and fixed structures

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Marine Science and Engineering is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
