S P C / I R E A P S Seeks Papers For D e l i v e r y At Tenth Technical S y m p o s i um

A "Call for Papers" was issued recently by SPC/IREAPS for delivery at the 10th annual technical symposium to be held August 23-25, 1983, at The Western Hotel-Copley Place, Boston, Mass.

A topic form supplied by the organization should be submitted by April 15, and a 100-word abstract of the technical paper is due by May 6.

The symposium is sponsored by the Ship Production Committee (SPC) of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers and the Institute for Research and Engineering for Automation and Productivity in Shipbuilding (IREAPS). The two organizations formed a coalition in November 1982 dedicated to promoting the interests of the shipbuilding industry and increasing productivity.

Papers should be concerned with topics such as computer applications in ship design, production, and repair; shipbuilding methods and ship productibility; enhancing worker productivity; planning and production control; and development of shipbuilding standards.

Also, U.S. implementation of foreign shipbuilding technology; materials handling and other industrial engineering concerns; productivity issues in Navy building, repair, and overhaul; and productivity considerations for the small yard.

The 1982 symposium was attended by nearly 400 persons representing more than 50 shipyards, 12 U.S. Government agencies, and 75 other organizations from the international shipbuilding sector.

For more information, contact Linda Bender or Pamela Slechta, SPC/IREAPS Technical Symposium, 10 West 35 Street, Chicago, 111. 60616. Tel. (312) 567-4618.
