Dynamic Positioning Committee Publishes Advanced Program

Monday, August 25, 2003
The Dynamic Positioning Committee of the Marine Technology Society will hold its Annual Conference on September 16-17. The Conference will be held at the Westchase Hilton in West Houston, September 16-17, 2003. Based on the number and very high quality of abstracts submitted this year, the Conference Committee expects this to be an extremely technically strong conference. Topics include papers on environmental issues related to DP operations, new technology especially in sensors, DP applied to FPSO and shuttle tankers, workboats, thrusters, power and controls. The original material covered at the Conference will be of interest to both past conference attendees and newcomers, and particularly DP vessel operators, including supply, dive, drilling, shuttle tanker, FPSO and pipelay vessels. Luncheon presentations, an evening reception and exhibits by leading suppliers of DP and related equipment will create a stimulating forum for discussion, exchange of information and the sharing of knowledge on Dynamic Positioning technology. The cost of attending the event is $475.00 ($400.00 for MTS, IADC. OSMA and SNAME members) for registrations received on or before September 1 2003, or $525 and $450 respectively after September 1.
