IMDEX Asia to Host Inaugural Asian Edition of International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition in 2013

First ever [email protected] Asia to feature greater focus on Asia, bringing together navy leaders and industry players to discuss naval technology challenges and innovations in the region

Singapore, Dec 20, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - The International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (IMDEX Asia), Asia Pacific's largest dedicated international maritime defence show, will play host to the first ever Asian edition of the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC) in 2013. The event is organised by Experia Events in association with the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), supported by the Republic of Singapore Navy (RSN).

Held since the early 1990s, INEC, organised by IMarEST, is one of the world's foremost forums to discuss naval technology and engineering issues that are of strategic relevance to navies around the world. INEC 2012, held in Edinburgh, Scotland, was attended by delegates from 17 countries representing ten navies and civilian supporting organisations of all sizes.

[email protected] Asia, held from 14 - 16 May 2013 at Changi Exhibition Centre, Singapore, will gather representatives from navies, commercial and military ship operators, designers and shipbuilders, manufacturers, defence-related organisations and academia, to discuss new developments and challenges faced by the naval engineering industry. The inaugural [email protected] Asia will carry the theme of 'Transforming Naval Capabilities - Riding the Next Technology Wave'. It aims to complement the biennial INEC in Europe with a greater emphasis on naval engineering issues in the Asia Pacific region, using the opportunity provided by IMDEX Asia, with its attendant naval delegations, industrial participation and trade visitors, to generate high level exchanges and discussion.

Singapore has been chosen to host INEC in Asia in view of its strategic location at the heart of Asia's flourishing naval and maritime industry. According to market analysis firm AMI International, the Asia Pacific region recently surpassed Europe as the world's second largest naval market after the United States, with projected spending of over US$201 billion in the next two decades on around 1,055 ships. INEC will henceforth be alternately held in Europe and Singapore, at IMDEX Asia.

Mr Jimmy Lau, Managing Director of Experia Events, said: "Over the years, we have seen naval technology advance by leaps and bounds worldwide, making it important for stakeholders to remain at the forefront of the latest technological innovations. I am therefore very excited for Experia Events to partner IMarEST in bringing INEC to Asia for the first time. Riding on the established track record of INEC as a leading naval engineering conference in Europe, [email protected] Asia will not only add significant value to and enhance the experience of all our delegates at IMDEX Asia, it will also play an important role in providing professional development opportunities for the naval engineering industry in Singapore and the Asia Pacific region. IMDEX Asia is proud to be the host of the inaugural Asian edition of INEC and we look forward to many more years of collaboration."

"As the emphasis of naval power and investment shifts towards the Asia Pacific region, it is timely to ensure that the right forums exist for Asian powers and their partners to discuss how technology and innovation can support the future capabilities that they need," said David Loosley, Chief Executive of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST). "It is most appropriate that we should base the first Asian edition of INEC in Singapore, one of the world's major maritime capitals, at Asia Pacific's largest dedicated international maritime defence show, IMDEX Asia. With the combined expertise of Experia Events, organiser of IMDEX Asia, together with IMarEST's more than twenty years' experience of running this conference in Europe and the support of the Republic of Singapore Navy, we are confident that this inaugural conference in Asia will deliver tremendous opportunities for discussion, collaboration and development of affordable solutions to meet the challenges of a fast changing maritime landscape."

ME7 Keith Lim, co-chairman of the Technical Programme Advisory Committee, Republic of Singapore Navy added, "We are very pleased with the developments leading to [email protected] Asia. The natural confluence of naval partners, defence engineers and technologists here makes this event a rich offering for everyone. The exchange of global perspectives, operational experiences and technology developments will indeed sharpen the solution space for tomorrow's Navy."

IMDEX Asia 2013, organised by Experia Events with the support of the Republic of Singapore Navy, will be held from 14 to 16 May 2013 at the Changi Exhibition Centre in Singapore. As a testament to the strategic importance of the event, over 80% of exhibition space for IMDEX Asia 2013 has already been booked. This includes new exhibitors such as Fincantieri, Luerssen, Scania and Schiebel, alongside industry leaders such as DCNS, Lockheed Martin and ST Engineering.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
