Deadline nears for naval conference submissions

“Engineering the Triple A Navy: Active, Adaptive, Affordable” is the theme of the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition.

“Engineering the Triple A Navy: Active, Adaptive, Affordable” is the theme at the heart of the 13th International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition, which will be held next spring in the historic Passenger Shed at Brunel’s Old Station in Bristol, England.

Cmdr. Matt Bolton of Britain’s Royal Navy, who is chairing his first INEC, said in a statement that the conference “provides a unique and uncompromising forum for professional engineers and technologists from across the world’s navies, defense industries and academic establishments to share the very latest thinking and developments in warship and submarine design and operation.”

INEC attracts conferees from navies, commercial and military ship operators, designers and shipbuilders, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, universities and other defense-related organizations.

INEC is scheduled for April 26-28. A call for papers was launched and the deadline for synopses is Oct. 23. Full details and an online submission form are at
