    ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

    The 2016 MTS Dynamic Positioning Conference is the best way for

    DP stakeholders to keep abreast of the latest technology,

    applications and changes affecting Dynamic Positioning. Now in its

    21st. year, this is a must-attend event for all professionals actively

    involved in DP or interested in gaining a better understanding of this

    continually evolving technology.

    The Conference starts with a one-day workshop followed by a

    two-day technical conference. This provides three days of

    informative cutt ing-edge presentations, exhibits, and

    opportunities, through social gatherings, for informal discussions

    and exchange of knowledge, experience, and lessons learned.

    Comprehensive Conference Proceedings are published on the

    Internet. This focused conference provides access to key decision-

    makers and technology leadership in the Dynamic Positioning

    industry, making the MTS DP Conference the world's leading

    symposium on Dynamic Positioning.

    This year the Technical Committee has put together a diverse and

    well-balanced program that focuses on new technology, while

    addressing topical issues such as cybersecurity, green initiatives and

    asset redeployment. The conference should be of value to all DP

    professionals, including designers, engineers, DP operators,

    support staff, consultants, class societies, government

    organizations and regulatory agencies, and DP vessel managers and

    owners.

    WORKSHOP

    A one-day workshop (see next page) will be held on Monday,

    October 10, the day prior to the official start of the Conference.

    First held in 2010, these workshops have proved to be both highly

    informative and extremely popular.

    This years workshop will focus on the latest MTS DP Guidance

    Documents and will follow a similar format to previous years. Note

    that there is limited space available for the workshop, and all

    previous workshops sold out. DP Professionals planning to attend

    are encouraged to register now. It is anticipated that the workshop

    will reach capacity before October.

    The cost of attending the Workshop is $150 per person.
