Maritime technology conference set for Rhode Island

For the first time in more than a decade, the World Maritime Technology Conference will be held in the United States and it will run from Nov. 3-7, 2015, at the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence.

The triennial event will be incorporated with the 2015 Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers Maritime Convention.
