International Conference on Piracy at Sea

Date(s) of Conference:

October 17-19, 2011


Malmö, Sweden


The grave threat of piracy to the security and efficiency of marine transportation, particularly to the men and women carrying out this important function, has led the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to adopt the theme “Piracy: orchestrating the response” for World Maritime Day in 2011. The International Conference on Piracy at Sea (ICOPAS 2011), organized by the World Maritime University (WMU) in cooperation with the IMO, commemorates this theme and contributes to the efforts of maritime industry stakeholders and the international community at large to identify, monitor, study, research, and implement preventive measures to combat violent crime against merchant shipping.
