This paper proposes an integrated solution for port M&S involving distributed interoperable simulators of port cranes; the authors propose the architecture, the description of the model, The containerisation of these simulators for guaranteeing maximum mobility as well as their integration with biomedical devices. The proposed system is designed to be used in operation training of Gantry Crane Operators as well as Research and Development (R&D) support in Container Terminal, Port Plants and Facilities.

The present research proposes a Virtual Port Simulator based on an HLA technology, devoted to cooperative training in Harbor Security Procedures to support Maritime Security Transportation Act and International Ship and Port Facility Security Code (SOLAS). Within these frameworks a clear requirement for port security assessment & training is addressed, therefore the complexity of Harbors as well as the wide type of possible crisis create complex conditions to properly face this challenges. This paper presents a Virtual Port solution developed by the authors in term of architecture, model description, and configuration for training and security assessment. In fact, the creation of a common Virtual Port as synthetic environment with stochastic constructive and virtual simulation, where each federate represents an actor interoperating with other ones. By this approach the simulation supports both training and security assessment in term of procedures and considering the necessity to coordinate the different actors and to consider all the different issues. The final result is the definition of a new approach to face security by a joint simulation that involves concurrently all active actors for port protection.

The paper proposes a simulation model to support decision in marine logistics; the application field is related to petrochemical industry where different production sites need exchange intermediate products by marine lines; the MARLON model and the use of this simulation approach is described and new applications based on distributed use of these innovative decision support system are proposed and demonstrated; in fact an experimental analysis on a case study is proposed as example of the potential provided by MARLON in improving logistics marine solutions within this field.

The museums of our continent are a result from a combination of factors, such as cultural trends, rivalry between cities, countries, and research teams, and the affinities or exchanges with metropolitan centers. Alliances and scientific wars determined the course of these institutions. As we show in this paper, in the 1880s and 1890s, competition between individuals, the Museo General de La Plata of the Province of Buenos Aires and the Museo Nacional of Buenos Aires would define the paths they would follow and a race for the possession of a large fossiliferous collection.
