In 2008, SNAME will celebrate its 115th anniversary. The theme of the SNAME 2008 Annual Meeting is ”Celebrating our Past, Engineering our Future”. A part of the conference programming will take a retrospective look at the range of changes and innovations that have taken place in the profession and industry over these past 115 years. The SNAME 2008 Annual Meeting educational programming will build on the strengths of SNAME’s technical integrity.
In addition to these formal educational sessions the new 2008 Annual Meeting format will also include opportunities for peer-to-peer networking. The SNAME Annual Meeting is the only professional meeting that includes all of the diverse technical interests and professional specialties in naval architecture, marine engineering and marine sciences.
Networking at the SNAME 2008 Annual Meeting is a great way to keep up with new developments taking place across the entire profession. It’s also a great way to extend your personal contacts and professional resource base.
The EXPO will feature new products and services from some of the leading companies in our industry. Meeting and networking with exhibitors in the EXPO hall and in the networking sessions is a great way to stay current with new technologies and improved methods.
The SNAME 2008 Annual Meeting will once again feature Exhibitor Innovation Sessions in the EXPO hall. Past attendees have found these sessions very helpful in building a more in-depth understanding of new technologies and innovations in our industry. They found the question and answer features of these sessions to be particularly helpful.

The Arctic Challenge - A Panel Discussion on Current and Future Arctic Marine Developments
Thursday, October 16th, 8:30am-10am
In recent years there has been increase interest in arctic resource development and shipping. In a new project is using the world’s first purpose built independent icebreaking tankers to export oil from the , while planning and front end engineering is underway for development of the giant Shtockman gas field.
In development of mineral resources is moving apace in the eastern arctic, while exploration and development activities are being initiated. Offshore oil and gas exploration is being planned in the .
All of these projects require a range of marine systems fit for arctic service including drillships, ice-management vessels, tankers and bulk carriers, and many other specialized vessels. The protection of the Arctic environment is critical and the interaction between all stakeholders is challenging.
The Arctic Section of SNAME has just concluded another successful IceTech Conference, in and now professionals attending the SNAME Annual Meeting can get themselves up to speed on what’s happening in the .
SNAME has assembled a panel of experts to discuss current and future arctic developments.
The panel will consist of:

The panelists will each have an opportunity to discuss their views on:
The present state and future state of shipbuilding,
Their means and strategies to cope with the current business environment,
The future opportunities and obstacles as you see them
The floor will then be opened up for questions from the audience.

In addition, SNAME 2008 will feature two Special Technical Sessions, in which presentations will be focused on a common theme.
On Thursday afternoon the Special Technical Session, Practical
Application of Rules and Regulations will feature presentations by representatives of three of the leading classification societies
Evaluation of the Environmental Risk of Aframax Tankers
Presented by Jonathan McGregor of Bureau Veritas: a discussion of the possible changes to Aframax tanker designs which would improve their performance in grounding incidents.
Safety Assessment of the Aged Ship
Presented by Lin Li of The American Bureau of Shipping: a presentation of the procedure necessary to conduct a safety
assessment of a 20 to 25 year old vessel such as might be necessary for a conversion or service life extension.
Can Small Tankers Afford Not To Be Double ?
Presented by Jonathon Morley of Lloyd's Register: The challenges facing the naval architect when designing a tanker of less than 5000 dwt in compliance with the regulations requiring double hulls.
These presentations address topics of interest to naval architects who interact with the classification societies on a regular basis. The presentations focus on the practical application of different aspect of the rules. Examples of the applied rules are given as guidance.
