The Japan Society of Naval Architects and Ocean Engineers and The Royal Institution of Naval Architects are for the first time organising the International Symposium on Shipbuilding Technology (ISST2007). The theme of ISST2007 will be fabrications and coatings.
There is a demand for thicker and more durable primer coatings to be applied to steel plates prior to initial fabrication of ships to reduce the cost of coating larger ships. Anti-corrosive technology in ballast tanks must respond to environmental demands to prohibit the use of tar and reduce the use of volatile organic compounds (VOC). Fabrication must utilize more efficient methods and the use of new materials. ISST2007 will provide an opportunity for all those concerned with this important and key area of shipbuilding to present and discuss the latest developments in these and other aspects of fabrication and coatings.
Papers are invited on the following topics:
- Protective Coatings in Water Ballast Tanks and Void Spaces
- Coating and VOC emission
- Anti-Fouling Systems of outer-shell of ships
- Metal fabrication
- Composite material, nano-technology
Authors should submit a single page (300 to 500 words) abstract of their proposed paper. The abstract must include the paper title, author(s)'s name(s), organisation, address and e-mail address. Abstracts should be forwarded by e-mail, with no attachments, to the address shown below.
