The Marine Environment Congress planned for 26 – 28 September 2001 in Rotterdam is organised by The Institute of Marine Engineers in association with the Royal Netherlands Society of Maritime Technologists. The need to improve or preserve the marine environment is now widely accepted, and affects every aspect of the global maritime industry. This major international congress will explore the industry's interaction with the marine environment, and propose advanced ways to preserve its future.
The technical programme will examine the present health of the marine environment, and will focus on the engineering, scientific and technological means to build a cost-effective and workable 'green ship'. Discussions will concentrate on advanced technologies, operational procedures, production technologies, waste management systems, etc.The conclusions of this congress will be communicated to the global maritime industry, and will raise awareness within the maritime sector of preserving the marine environment for the future.Over 300 delegates are expected to attend this congress including professionals from national and international governing organisations, marine science, academia, research, marine technology, engineering, manufacturing, operators in the merchant and military navies, and in the field of offshore research and development.
The call for papers is aimed at the entire maritime industry and in particular those organisations that can prove that latest research and development into environmental concepts, are not only technically innovative but keep within the constraints of economic pressures.
