Maritime Innovation — Practical Approaches '84 International Symposium
New York — September 27-28 The New York Metropolitan Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, in conjunction with the SNAME T & R Ship Production Committee, will present its Third International Symposium, "Maritime Innovation— Practical Approaches '84," at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel in New York on September 27-28. Innovative and practical approaches are essential in today's ever-changing and demanding maritime industry. This symposium will address many new and innovative methods of ship design, construction, and operation. In addition, the Ship Production Committee will highlight new ideas and methods in shipbuilding by presenting papers that detail the activities of its panels.
This committee's participation in the symposium continues its mission of publicizing the work done in this country to improve production methods. This symposium is this year's replacement for the annual symposia formerly sponsored by IREAPS and the Ship Production Committee.
The symposium will begin with three keynote presentations that will address "innovation" in terms of naval procurement, ship production, and ship operation. The keynote speakers will be Comm.
Stuart Piatt, Completion Advocate General, U.S. Navy; William Haggett, president and CEO of Bath Iron Works; and W.B. Hubbard, senior vice president, American President Lines. The program will then split into three concurrent technical sessions that will present a total of 37 papers. Luncheons have been scheduled for both the 27th and 28th of September in the Hilton Room on the main floor at the Park Avenue side of the Waldorf. Luncheon speakers had not been announced as we went to press with this issue. A no-host general reception will be held from 6:00-7:30 pm on September 27 in the Basildon Room on the third floor.
The registration desk will be located on the third floor of the hotel in the Jade and Astor Foyer. It will be open from 7:30 am to 4:00 pm on September 27, and from 8:00 am to 11:30 am on September 28. Registration at the symposium is $225 for members and $250 for non-members.
