Decarbonization and Digitalization in Maritime Sector

Dear Colleagues,

The shipping industry has encountered the challenge of making the right regulatory and investment decisions to comply with not only the short-term emission regulations (such as IMO 2020 sulphur cap) but also the IMO long-term plans. In order to achieve zero emission in marine transport activities, the transition of energy sources from traditional fossil fuels to clean fuels may be inevitable.

In parallel, just as artificial intelligence and autonomy promise in other applications, it is expected that autonomous ships can improve safety, increase efficiency, and relieve humans from unsafe and repetitive tasks.

In this context, this Special Issue is motivated to introduce and exchange ideas and information in seeking cleaner shipping and production as well as autonomous technologies in response to the current marine safety and environmental issues. To achieve this goal, we wish to invite novel research which can offer meaningful insights into successful technologies for making shipping greener and safer.
The scope of this issue can be more extensive than what is stated in the title, ranging from addressing the global challenges toward zero-emission and autonomy to demonstrating the effectiveness of different state-of-the-art technologies.
It is highly believed that your participation and contribution to this Issue will provide a rare opportunity to reach our goal of zero emissions and zero accidents through the improved strategies, plans and technologies.
