September 30 - October 1, — New York, NY The New York Metropolitan Section of SNAME, in conjunction with T&R Panel 0-36 (Economic Analysis of Marine Transportation Systems), The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, will present from September 30th to October 1st a "Symposium on Ship Costs and Energy." This symposium is a follow-up on the most successful "Shipboard Energy Conservation Symposium" held in 1980 and is being held due to the many requests for an updating on this vital subject. The symposium sessions will be held at the Waldorf Astoria Hotel.

During the Technical Sessions, 26 papers will be presented along with one panel discussion. The keynote paper, "Ship Costs and Energy Conservation from an Owner's Point of View," will be given by Eugene K. Pentimonti, vice president, engineering, American President Lines, at 8:30 a.m.

on Thursday, September 30, and will set the tone of the symposium.

Following the keynote paper, the symposium will split into two concurrent sessions. The "Ship Costs" portion will address shipbuilding and ship operating costs.

The recent economic environment of double-digit inflation, high interest and exchange rates, has been complicated by changing vessel designs, new pollution and safety regulations, and energy shortages. This highly dynamic situation did not exist 10 years ago. The sessions will focus on analyses and reduction of costs.

At the end of the first day's session a panel discussion of "Shipbuilding and Ship Operating Costs" will be held.

"Energy" as a separate but related topic will concentrate on the technical aspect of design and operation. Many innovative changes in traditional approaches have taken place. New energyefficient designs, practical operational alternatives and conversions for increased fuel efficiency will be addressed.

Luncheons have been scheduled for both Thursday and Friday in the Empire Room of the hotel. Prof. Harry Benford, University of Michigan, will speak at the Thursday luncheon, and the Hon. Harold E. Shear, Maritime Administrator, Department of Transportation, will speak at the Friday luncheon.

A no-host general reception will take place on Thursday evening at 6:00 p.m. in the Hilton Room.
