World NAOE Forum 2014 - The Use of Big Data in Marine & Ocean Engineering 

28 November 2014, I-site Namba, Osaka Prefecture University, Osaka, Japan    


Organized by the Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers (JASNAOE)

Jointly hosted by the Royal Institution of Naval Architects (RINA)

Supported by the Pan Asian Association of Maritime Engineering Societies (PAAMES)

Sponsored by ClassNK (Nippon Kaiji Kyokai)


Big data is the term used to describe large and complex amounts of data that cannot easily be handled by traditional or conventional data processing applications. Big data will be increasingly featured in maritime research. The World NAOE Forum 2014 will focus on the challenges in marine and ocean engineering towards the use of big data. The Forum will provide presentations of practical examples of the use of big data and discussions on the current and future use of big data in marine and ocean engineering fields.
