(LONDON) - Following on the successful event that took place in March 2009, organizers will again host the conference, Tackling Piracy at Sea, in London.

The group Ecoterra says that since international naval forces have been patrolling the Gulf of Aden, it has been hoped that piracy in the region will be curbed or cease altogether.

"However, the problem has not gone away and indeed there is evidence that piracy attacks are increasing in other global regions," Ecoterra said in a statement. Bringing together senior representatives from government, navies, the shipping industry, unions, insurance companies, private security companies and regulatory bodies, Tackling Piracy at Sea will examine the impact of piracy on the shipping industry as well as reviewing the success of naval intervention to date. Delegates with a vested interest in finding a long-term solutions will debate the trend towards arming vessels, tackling piracy via land-based solutions, using technology to combat piracy and discussing whether pirates should be viewed as criminals or terrorists.

Speakers Include:
* Stephen Askins, Ince & Co
* Claus Brandt, Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers
* Nigel Carden, Chairman, The International Group Security sub-committee, Deputy Chairman UK P&I
* James Christodoulou, Chief Executive, Industrial Shipping Enterprises
