From 1987 to 1992 eight countries (Finland, France, Greece, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, Portugal and Spain) and the European Community were cooperating in a project to promote research into maritime traffic simulation. The main objective was to develop cost effective simulation techniques to improve safety and efficiency of maritime traffic, with particular regard to collision and grounding avoidance. Four topics have defined guidelines for the work: (i) creation of a library database for simulation studies; (ii) development of a common method for traffic data analysis; (iii) definition of a common programme for the development of simulation in Europe; (iv) implementation of cooperative activities of research. The results of the project were discussed in a seminar in Brussels on 3 and 4 December 1992. The proceedings of this seminar are joined to the final report of the project.
