ShipTech 2003, a Shipbuilding Technologies Information Exchange, will be held at the Beau Rivage Resort & Casino in Biloxi, Mississippi on January 16-17, 2003. The two-day event is intended as a forum for the domestic shipbuilding industry, its supplier base, the U.S. Navy Program Offices and the U.S. Navy-sponsored shipbuilding research programs to exchange information on shipbuilding technical developments.
Keynote presentations will provide a high level overview of naval shipbuilding programs, as seen by the Naval Sea Systems Command, the Office of Naval Research and the National Shipbuilding Research Program Executive Control Board. A plenary session will examine future trends in shipbuilding technology, both in the US and abroad. Technical sessions will then focus on completed and ongoing projects aimed at providing innovative materials, process technologies, and business processes to the shipbuilding community. This event will conclude with a plenary panel discussion focussed on identifying the near term shipyard needs for technology development, and likely sources of funding.
Anyone interested in making a presentation or attending ShipTech 2003 should contact Tricia Wright.
