With events occurring from May 21- 22, 1999, this year's American Society of Naval Engineers annual exhibition will commence in Washington, D.C. at the Hyatt Regency with a keynote session on Friday — the conference's premiere day.
V.Adm. Arthur K. Cebrowski, USN, president, Naval War College, will speak on behalf of future challenges that await naval warfare systems development for the year 2000 — and how to explore them. Attendees will also view the latest new industry products, as well as attending the Society's Awards Luncheon at which U.S. Atlantic Fleet Commander in Chief, Adm. J. Paul Reason, USN will be the featured speaker. Following, that same afternoon, and on Saturday, will be the technical paper sessions.
