New Chairman for EUGIN

The European Group of Institutes of Navigation appointed a new Chairman on 26 April.

The Netherlands' Capt Rein van Gooswilligen handed over EUGIN chairmanship to Prof Krzysztof Czaplewski of the Naval Academy of Poland at the final reception of the European Navigation Conference 2012.

Prof Czaplewski, whose chairmanship will cover the period to 2015, paid a warm tribute to the leadership of Capt van Gooswilligen at a spectacular dinner in the Polish Maritime Museum, Gdansk.

Around 200 speakers and delegates attended ENC 2012, held from 25 to 27 April in the wonderful Baltic Philharmonic in the Old Town of Gdansk. The host Polish Navigation Forum had arranged a programme of around 140 papers on all aspects of land, sea, air and space navigation.

ENC 2013 will be hosted by Österreichischer Verein für Navigation (OVN) in the Austria Center, Vienna on 23-25 April.

ENC 2014 will be hosted by Nederlands Instituut voor Navigatie (NIN) at the World Trade Centre, Rotterdam on 14-18 April.
