Europort 2013 issues a call for papers for its Advanced Technology Conferences, November 5-8, 2013 in Rotterdam.
Organisers have invited leading national and international players to showcase the global industry’s cutting edge ideas, which will sustain growth in the diverse special-purpose ships sector, as mainstream markets continue to stagnate.
The ‘Advanced Technology Conferences’, whose overarching theme is ‘Pioneers in maritime technology’, are being organised in cooperation with Holland Marine Equipment (HME), and consist of a series of short, dynamic workshops, updating visitors on the latest innovations in maritime technology. Each workshop will focus on a specific sector of the maritime industry, with dedicated sessions on Mega Yachts, Naval Specials, Workboats, Offshore, Inland Navigation and Construction Vessels.
In addition to the Advanced Technology Conferences, Europort 2013’s four-day exhibition will provide plenty of scope to access latest technological thinking. More than 1,000 exhibitors will gather, including pavilions from countries such as China, Finland, France, South Korea, USA, Poland, Romania, Spain, the Netherlands and United Kingdom.
Each presentation is limited to 20 minutes and must focus on both innovation and application. Submissions should be received by June 1st 2013 and will be assessed by an independent panel of judges for relevance to the workshop theme, technological innovation, market potential and originality.
Entry forms for submissions are available here.
