JAKOM-99 (Fourth Japan-Korea Joint Workshop on Ship and Marine Hydrodynamics )

2. Prof. Yasushi Higo, Hiroshima University
FAX: +81-824-22-7194
57 participants from Korea, 69 from Japan and 4 from Australia, Italy and
China (60 students and 70 others). One of the events of 50th anniversary of
West-Japan Society of Naval Architects.

Comment of Dr. F. ZHAO, China:
It was great honored for my attending JAKOM-99. By your meticulous preparing, JAKOM-99 was held successfully and fruitfully. During the Workshop I have made a lot of new friends, especially young men from both Japan and Korea. I shared the Proceedings of the Workshop with my colleagues when I came back. Further, may I suggest that the Workshop would expand to all the Asian Pacific, including Japan, Korea, China, Australia and other countries. I wish I would have chance to take part in the next Workshop.
Comment of Dr. DOCTORS, Australia:
This two-day workshop was attended by 74 delegates, mainly from Korea and Japan. There were also researchers who had travelled from Italy, China, and Australia. The approximately 70 papers were of an exceptionally high standard and covered all areas of maritime hydrodynamics, particularly ship motions and free-surface effects on ships. A very friendly atmosphere existed at the workshop and this was no doubt due in large part to the excellent planning by the organizing committee.
