SNAME/SSC To Hold Ninth Symposium

On November 18-20, 1996, the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) and interagency Ship Structure Committee (SSC) will co-sponsor a joint symposium called Human and Organizational Error in Marine Structures: A Quest for Quality in Design, Construction and Maintenance. The symposium is scheduled to be held at the Sheraton National Hotel in Arlington,Va.

As in the past, the symposium is intended to provide a wide sampling of recent research in the field of ship structures, much of which has been sponsored by SSC and SNAME. Topics of the papers to be presented include safety and risk management, inspection and operations, quality and reliability, and case studies on errors in marine structures. These papers will reportedly provide the field with readily usable tools for improving productivity and safety.

This is the ninth such symposium cooperatively sponsored by the Hull Structure Committee of SNAME and SSC. The SSC member agencies include the American Bureau of Shipping, Defence Research Establishment Atlantic (Canadian National Defence), the Maritime Administration, the Military Sealift Command, Naval Sea Systems Command, Transport Canada and the U.S. Coast Guard.
