AISE '96 PREVIEW CONFERENCE SCHEDULE

The American International Shipbuilding Exposition (AISE) is scheduled to take place on April 11- 13 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, La.

AISE organizers expect attendance at the show to reach 6,000 persons, in addition to the representatives from approximately 250 leading world suppliers that have registered to exhibit. The latest in ship designs will be available, and the shipyards in attendance will undoubtedly be offering evidence of their commercial vessel production capability by exposing show delegates to new yard building techniques, productivity enhancement programs, facility upgrades and new equipment.

Sponsoring agencies for AISE include the U.S. Department of Commerce, the Maritime Administration, the American Shipbuilding Association, the Shipbuilders Council of America, the American Waterways Shipyard Conference, the Marine Machinery Association, the Maritech Program, Intertanko, Intercargo and the International Association of Classification Societies.

In conjunction with the products and services exhibition, a conference program, titled the "American International Maritime Forum," is scheduled to take place in order to encourage constructive discussion among maritime professionals and U.S. legislators and regulators concerning the future of U.S. legislation and regulations affecting vessel operators based in the U.S. and abroad. A keynote address and five seminar sessions will take place during the three-day conference period, covering topics such as ship construction, U.S. regulations and legislation, the revolution in communications technology, and international regulations.

Notable speakers will include: John Graykowski, Maritime Administration; Gregory B. Hadjieleftheriadis, Eletson Corp.; A.L. Bossier, Jr., Avondale Industries, Inc.; Pete Bontadelli, California Office of Oil Spill Prevention and Response; Rear Admiral James C.
