Shipping 4.0: Sailing the Digital Wave

Marseille

27 - 29 September 2018


The fall seminar of the AIJA Transport Law Comission (TLC) is to take place in the beautiful city of Marseille. This year we will be “Sailing the digital Wave”. With the chosen subject we want to explore the (legal) impact of digitalization in the transport and trade sector. Autonomous vessels, autonomous trucks, loading and unloading of cargo without the involvement of men, release of cargo via pin code - for some the distant future, for others a present fact. Does anyone really know what blockchain and its implications are? Or how to insure a vessel of which the captain is a computer? Who is liable in case of an accident? We will be speaking about these and other key topics during the seminar.

As usually, our members will be on the panel to discuss the legal impact of the matter. However, considering the technicality of the matter this year, we have also invited people from the business world to address our participants: parties working in the blockchain industry, a master of vessels and a ship owner. We truly believe that this will be a unique event in the history of the AIJA Transport Law Commission.

And, not to forget the venue:

Marseille is the second largest city in France. It has its own culture and is proud of it. It is the most important trading center in the south of France, especially with regards to shipping activities as it is, among others, the city where CMA CGM has its headquarters. Marseille is continuously changing. Besides, it offers a wide range of leisure activities (bars, restaurants, clubs, museums, theatres, hiking in the Calanques or sailing on the Mediterranean Sea). Marseille is a city always in movement. Dynamic as it is, it's a perfect host to a seminar with an equally dynamic topic.
