MARSIM 2000 INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE ON MARINE SIMULATION AND SHIP MANEUVERABILITY (Orlando, Florida, U.S.A. May 8-12, 2000) will be of interest to all who are involved in the design and operation of water craft, harbor and port facilities --- hydrodynamicists, naval architects, vessel operators, mariners, classification societies, marine engineers, maritime educators, marine insurers, port authorities, civil engineers and others with a common interest in this field. MARSIM 2000 will address both the broad and specific interests involved in the science and practice of maritime training and education, emphasizing advanced instructional technologies (AIT) and focusing on the use of simulation, multimedia, virtual reality, educational theory and behavioral science.
MARSIM Conferences have met every three years since 1978 under the auspices of the International Marine Simulator Forum (IMSF). Plans are now being prepared for a joint conference in Orlando, Florida. MARSIM 2000 will be joined by Panel H-10 (Ship Controllability) of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and will provide a
forum for the presentation and discussion of papers that describe the latest achievements and trends from both the theoretical and application points of view. The overall Conference objective is to advance the knowledge and science of maneuverability and improve our ability to simulate and design vessels, marine waterways systems as well as apply that body of knowledge to effectively train operators to ensure safe and efficient marine transportation systems.
CALL FOR PAPERS - Authors are invited to present papers concerning marine simulation and simulator topics.
