An International Symposium To Assist Ship Operators To Improve Operations "International Symposium on Ship Operations (ISOSO '81) is a 'Catch 22' title, deliberately.
There are so many factors that go into the safe, profitable and efficient operations of a ship on the high seas that every aspect must be scrutinized before every conference program is put together," stated Capt. J.C. Musser, Ship Analytics, Inc., New York, N.Y., and general chairman for ISOSO '81.
The International Symposium on Ship Operations is an annual conference sponsored by The Maritime Association of the Port of New York, American Institute of Merchant Shipping, Council of American Flag Ship Operators, The Hydrographic Society and The Council of American Master Mariners. It is being held at the New York City Passenger Terminal on the Hudson River from November 16 to November 19.
The 1981 conference marks a significant expansion from previous Symposiums in two directions.
First, an entire maritime discipline has been added to the affair when the Hydrographic Society became an official ISOSO sponsor. This group, while small in numbers, is large in influence in almost every other phase of maritime life.
The second significant expansion was the decision to move the Symposium to the New York City Passenger Terminal. With the additional space available there will be many more exhibits than were possible in previous years. Over 110 firms have reserved booth spaces to exhibit their marineoriented equipment. There also is room to run concurrent conference sessions which translate into more papers. The other advantages of this location are that there are conference dining areas, cocktail bars, conferees' lounge and reserved parking on the upper level.
A further enhancement of the conference due to location is the addition of in-water exhibits and demonstrations.
Monday, November 16, has been d e s i g n a t e d International Shipping Issues Policy Day with Phillip Loree, president, Federation of American Controlled Shipping, serving as chairman. The ISOSO International Day will address questions such as: What should U.S. maritime policy be regarding the U.S.-flag liner fleet; regarding the U.S.-flag bulk fleet, and regarding the U.S. effective control fleet. The second set of issues to be discussed are based on the questions: Is it viable in the real world to have bulk cargo sharing and is it viable in the real world to have the UNCTAD liner code. The morning session will get underway at 8:45 a.m.
The afternoon session will adjourn at 4:50 p.m.
The next three days, November 17 through 19 will be given over to the presentation of papers and panel discussions. The subject matter for these three days of the Symposium was generated by requests from people within the maritime industry.
For example, purchasing agents and others requested papers dealing with shipboard inventory systems, jointly supported sparepart warehousing, computerized spare-part inventory and preventive maintenance scheduling.
The papers to be presented will cover a wide variety of subjects, including navigation, communications, hydrography, training and certification, economics, fuel consumption and computers.
Panels on broad subjects will give more viewpoints a chance to be heard. One such panel will deal with ship board computers, another will examine the changing role of both officers and men on board seagoing vessels, and yet another will deal with new safety requirements.
There will be 19 separate conference sessions. The final sessions of each of the three days will be used for a significant inwater demonstration that relates to a final paper presented for that day.
