IMarEST calls for papers for third INEC @ IMDEX Asia 2017

Singapore, 22 September 2016 – The International Maritime Defence Exhibition and Conference (IMDEX Asia), Asia Pacific’s premier international maritime defence show, will be hosting the third Asian edition of the International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition (INEC@IMDEX Asia) in 2017. The theme for the conference will be “Robust Designs, Flexible Capabilities”.

Co-organisers of the event, Experia Events and the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST) today called for papers on naval topics relevant to the Asia Pacific region.

Supported by the Republic of Singapore Navy and Defence Science & Technology Agency (DSTA), INEC@IMDEX Asia 2017 will address the multiplying effect, flexible platforms, underwater technology and effective support solutions all supporting strategic security and safety issues, and present the latest technologies on naval platform design and developments through industry technical workshops.

Held from 17 to 18 May 2017 at IMDEX Asia in Singapore, representatives from navies, commercial and military ship operators, designers and shipbuilders, manufacturers, defence-related organisations and academia, will gather for this exceptional opportunity to gain insight into future technologies and developments shaping the naval engineering landscape. The programme will also be accredited for Continuing Professional Development (CPD). IMarEST members are eligible to get 10% off conference fees.

Prospective authors have until Friday 4th November to submit a paper title and an abstract of between 250 and 500 words in text only. Abstracts will be reviewed by the Technical Programme Advisory Committee and selected on the basis of technical quality, relevance and their potential for generating discussion. Successful authors will be asked to produce and submit an extended abstract for the conference, and develop their abstract into a full technical paper of up to 4,000 words, with relevant illustrations. Full technical papers will be published online through IMarEST’s archive service or in one of the Institute’s journals.

Established in the UK in the early 1990’s, this is the third time the prestigious INEC conference will be held during IMDEX Asia. This year’s INEC@IMDEX Asia is expected to attract up to 350 delegates.

IMarEST’s Chief Executive David Loosley said: “We are delighted to be running INEC in Singapore as part of IMDEX Asia. With this being the third edition in Asia, INEC has been growing impressively and has won recognition as the leading platform for naval design and technology discussions.”

Mr Leck Chet Lam, Managing Director of Experia Events, said: “Since its inaugural edition in 2013, the biennial INEC@IMDEX Asia has established itself as a key global forum, which keeps academia and marine professionals abreast of the latest naval technological innovations and advancements in the military and commercial sectors. The insightful exchange and discussions for workable solutions in the field of naval technology at INEC also complements the strategic conferences and technological showcase at IMDEX Asia.”
