Newport News Shipbuilding And SNAME Sponsor Ship Production Symposium
August 27 To 29, 1986 Design and production concepts to reduce shipbuilding schedules and costs is the theme for the 1986 Ship Production Symposium to be held at the Williamsburg Lodge, August 27-29, 1986, in Williamsburg, Va. The symposium is under the auspices of the National Shipbuilding Research Program and is being sponsored by Newport News Shipbuilding, and hosted by the Hampton Roads Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers.
The reduction of shipbuilding schedules and costs is a vital necessity recognized by all in the maritime industry. New design and production concepts play a major role in the achievement of this goal. The National Shipbuilding Research Program 1986 Ship Production Symposium includes technical presentations that cover a diversity of topics. This three-day program, developed by the 1986 Ship Production Symposium Steering Committee headed by W. R. (Pat) Phillips Jr., provides a forum for the presentation of the latest developments in design and production concepts, which will affect schedules and costs dramatically over the next decade.
The Technical Program Committee, chaired by R. L. Harrington, has selected 23 stimulating and thought-provoking papers by authors both nationally and internationally that cover the range of subjects being addressed by the Ship Production working groups. The program outline with authors and papers are listed in the Technical Program for the 1986 Ship Production Symposium that follows.
The program has been arranged to take advantage not only of stateof- the-art technical subjects but also the Virginia Peninsula and its wealth of history. Special activities and social events planned include a keynote luncheon address by Vice Adm. J. H. Webber; the presentation of the Kennedy Award by Perry W. Nelson, president of the Society; a bus tour of the construction facilities at Newport News Shipbuilding, followed by a reception on Wednesday. On Thursday, there will be a tour of Carter's Grove Plantation, and high tea at the Williamsburg Lodge. The world-famous Groaning Board Banquet, complete with Colonial entertainment, is scheduled for the afternoon and evening respectively; and on Friday a presentation on the reconstructed Godspeed is planned, with a tour of the ship on Friday afternoon.
