Reported by JBLCF-Bacolod










Three papers authored by seven faculty and staff researchers from JBLCF-Bacolod had been accepted for oral presentation by the Organizing Committee of the 9th International Maritime Science Conference (IMSC) held on September 9-10, 2021, in Varna, Bulgaria. The Nikola Vaptsarov Naval Academy hosted this international conference. The IMSC 2021 provides an ideal academic platform for researchers to present the latest research findings and describe emerging technologies and directions in Maritime Science and Maritime Education issues. The conference seeks to contribute to presenting novel research results in all aspects of Maritime Science. The annual IMSC conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers, and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results in the area of their topics of interest. It also provides the premier interdisciplinary forum for scientists, engineers, practitioners, and maritime companies to present their ideas, developments, and applications in all areas of Maritime Sciences. For the 2021 conference, the committee had extended their invitation to Maritime Educational Institutions for topics on Education and training, Marine Engineering, Navigation, Marine Ecology, Maritime Health, Up-To-Date Technologies, Safety and security, and Human resources in transport, among other topics.

The travel restrictions brought by the pandemic prevented the researchers from attending the event physically. However, the conference committee has provided opportunities to include the papers in the program proceedings and for the papers to be published in Pedagogika-Pedagogy, a journal indexed in the Web of Science. Pedagogika is a scientific theoretical and methodological journal that combines knowledge areas in a broader range of information, such as pre-school education, primary education, education for adults, comparative education, special education, history of pedagogy, social education pedagogy. The journal’s focus is all educational levels – from pre-school, primary, secondary, and higher education to learning through life.
