International Conference on Engine Room Simulators (ICERS) aims to support the activities of IMLA by providing an interactive forum for the international maritime engine room simulator community. ICERS seeks to achieve this aim by promoting international contact and co-operation between engine room simulator operators, researchers, commercial simulator manufacturers and courseware developers, software publishers, relevant government administrations, international and national maritime organisations, marine engineers and shipping companies. At the heart of ICERS are the academic staff and trainers world-wide who seek to support STCW Convention, and to further develop the competencies and professionalism of marine engineers, through the use of simulator technology.

The 12th International Conference on Engine Room Simulators (ICERS 12) is organized in cooperation with the Marine Engineering Department of Istanbul Technical University Maritime Faculty, and supported by the Turkish Chamber of Marine Engineers and Maritime Federation. ICERS 12 will be held from November 19th, 2015 to November 20th, 2015 at the Istanbul Technical University Maritime Faculty (ITUMF), Istanbul, Turkey.

ICERS 12 provides a venue and opportunity for the Engine Room Simulator (ERS) community including developers, manufacturers, providers, educators, trainers, publishers and everybody with keen interest on ERS to present their knowledge, experiences, views, research results, and products in a global forum. It would be a fruitful congregation and assembly for exchanging and sharing ideas about engine room simulators as well as solutions to problems that showcases new development on ERS in all forms whether it be full mission, full task, part-task or desk-top PC based.

We, then, at the local organizing committee, on behalf of the International Maritime Lecturers Association, encourage you to present papers and/or display products.
