The IMSF is an organization for professionals involved in the advancement of maritime education, training and research through the use of simulation. Objectives are to provide an effective medium for the interchange of ideas, develop performance criteria for the use of simulators and to collaborate with all other organizations involved in maritime simulation.

In order to achieve these objectives it is customary that at least once a year a general meeting with seminar is held at one of the members premises. Technical tours and visits to simulator facilities are then included. Once every three years a formal conference, the so called International MARSIM Conference, is organized at which official presentations are given and proceedings published. These proceedings form a source of information for anyone searching for knowledge on the topic of maritime simulation.
