Safety of maritime transportation in the new era

In the past decades, insightful findings have been discovered by introducing advanced techniques for the safety analysis of maritime transportation. Moreover, in the new era, there has been an enormous increase in the complexity of the transportation systems. For example, with the development of autonomous ships and new energy ships, new challenging issue occurs such as lack of statistical data, unknow unknows.

Therefore, there is a need to carry out more research to improve the safety of maritime transportation systems in the new era. This special issue focuses on the new and challenging problems in safety of maritime transportation systems. For this special issue, high-quality papers presented at the 7th International Conference on Transportation Information and Safety (ICTIS 2023, will be invited to submit an extension of their paper, and free submissions are also welcome. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Safety of autonomous ships/underwater vehicles
  • Safety of new energy ship
  • Resilience of maritime transportation system
  • Risk assessment of maritime accidents
  • Causation factors analysis of maritime accidents
  • Human reliability analysis of maritime transportation
  • Decision-making of risk control options
  • Emergency response and preparedness of maritime accidents
