The AVAL consortium had an oportunity to present the project during cycling workshops dedicated to ship maneuvering. The tradition of workshops dates back to the early nineties. In subsequent years maneuvering workshops transferred into a cyclical international conference organized under the name HYDMAN. The project presentation aroused considerable interest among participants representing universities and marine companies and institutions.
