Sname Preview: 2004 SNAME Set for Washington, D.C.

Thursday, August 05, 2004

One of the maritime industry's premiere annual events, the 2004 SNAME Maritime Technology Conference & Exposition, is scheduled to grace scenic Washington, D.C., scheduled from September 29 to October 1, 2004. Washington, D.C., the center of U.S. political power, is an appropriate host for the event, as the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) annual meeting and exhibition are well-renowned for bringing together an enviable gathering of the maritime industry's elite minds. This year's edition promises not to disappoint, as the conference once again is filled with a wide diversity of papers on topics geared to spark discussion and debate on some of the industry's more timely and challenging topics

The technical program consists of two SNAME tracks and two Ship Production Symposium tracks, with a first time ever one-hour time slot on Thursday dedicating all four tracks to student presentations. Presentations on advances in ship production, design, operations, and innovations in product and system technologies will provide opportunities for professional development. This program promises to be one of the most timely, content-rich programs available within the maritime industry. See page 51 for Paper Topic Listings

Ship Production Symposium

This symposium is a well-known annual event where results of research supported by sources including the National Shipbuilding Research Program Advanced Shipbuilding Enterprise (NSRP ASE) are presented. This symposium is dedicated to the support and progress of U.S. shipyards, both commercial and naval, in keeping with NSRP's mission to assist the U.S. shipbuilding and repair industry in reducing the cost of Navy ships while achieving and maintaining global competitiveness with respect to quality, time, cost and customer satisfaction. Authors will be presenting papers that reflect the interests of the SNAME Ship Production Committee and the NSRP Strategic Investment Plan.
