The Zosen Kyokai, a predecessor of the Society of Naval Architects of Japan, was founded in 1897, and the Kansai Society of Naval Architects and the Kyushu Zosenkai were established in 1912 and 1924 successively. In 2005, The Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers (JASNAOE) launched as a unified society of these societies and succeeded the history, knowledge and members of three societies to support industries, universities and maritime organisations more widely and deeply.
The JASNAOE has organized conferences, symposia, workshops and training programs, and has published technical journals (Japanese and English), bulletins and technical/ educational books. JASNAOE also provides opportunities for technical information exchange for members and promotes up-to-date research projects to advance the science and technology.
Membership of JASNAOE is widely recognized as a professional qualification in industries and universities. As a member you can access to all qualified articles and activities of the society, and enjoy substantial discounts to all publications, conferences and symposia.
