The Bulgarian maritime volunteers’ organization to the public benefit BULSAR, with the assistance of IMRF (International Maritime Rescue Federation), has the pleasure to invite You to participate the conference, titled „Automated systems for maritime search and rescue”, which is to be held on June 16 & 17, 2016 in Varna, Bulgaria.
The Conference will be held simultaneously with another one - “Integrated informational system in support of coastal zone management”, organized at the Higher Marine Naval School - Varna.
Having in mind the serious interest of Black sea countries in the problems of protection of human life at sea and preservation of the Black sea waters cleanliness, demonstrated in a number of documents, among which „Doc.GA41/EC40/REC131/13 (“Development of cooperation in Salvage and Rescue (SAR) among the BSEC Member States”), we consider that Your participation will demonstrate a confirmation of the humanitarian goals.
An important moment of the forum, organized by BULSAR, is the presentation of a specialized software for maritime and aeronautical SAR, developed by NIKOOSAR, complete with training on its usage.
Parallel to that, a specialized center for maritime crises management will be opened, to which the training center of BULSAR will be annexed.
We are expecting interest in our conference on the part of the interested organizations, responsible for the protection of human life at sea and preservation of the Black sea waters cleanliness, as well as the volunteers’ European maritime structures, IMRF members and other European structures.
I shall be very grateful, if You could spread the within information to the PABSEC member countries.
We are ready to submit any additional information.
We are looking forward to meet You here!
