The modern transportation of cargo by sea is one of the most important aspects of the international trade. The maritime transportation is very cost-efficient and is deservedly treated as a preferred choice when compared to the land and/or air transportation. In fact, it only adds a few percent to the overall cost of the products.
However, it normally takes much longer and there are also certain issued with the efficient integration of this transportation option with the others. In addition to that, due attention shall be paid to the safety of the transportation as well as the environment protection. The latest technological achievements and advances in the field of maritime transportation are posing the serious demands on the science requiring proper synergy of the maritime and IT fields.
It affects such important areas as the risk assessment, computational intelligence, knowledge representation and so many others, considered critical for the safe and efficient transportation. The present volume is focusing on the most interesting researches on the IT methodologies as applied to the marine transportation. There are seven chapters covering the necessary areas and giving readers a clear picture.
