Montreal, Canada, February 20-21

The Canadian Maritime Indus- tries Association's (CMIA) 41st An- nual Technical Conference will be held at Montreal's Queen Elizabeth

Hotel on February 20-21, 1989. "As a result of the resounding success of the Canadian Shipbuild- ing & Offshore Exhibition, we have decided to include CSOE '89 on the program for our 1989 conference," said CMIA president J.Y. Clarke. "This added feature has resulted in a tremendous interest in the confer- ence, the largest technical marine conference held in Canada.

CSOE'89 will be a major component of the conference."

Mr. Clarke pointed out that the technical conference's open ses- sions, which begin at 9 a.m. on Feb- ruary 21, will be presented in two adjacent rooms, the Jolliet Room and Marquette Room.

Some of the papers listed in the preliminary program include: "De- sign Development and First Experi- ence with the Bergen Diesel Type B

Medium Speed Engine," by L.M.

Nerheim, Bergen Diesel A.S.; "Diesel Engines in Naval Applica- tions," by H. Pleimling, Deutz

MWM; "Trump Noise Control," by

K. McKeever, Pratt & Whitney

Canada Inc.; and "Construction and

Project Management of Icebreaker

Oden," by B-G Renbourg, GVA

Canada, and J. Falkman and G.

Lilijestrom, GVA Sweden.

CSOE '89 will be located on the convention floor opposite the tech- nical conference rooms. CSOE'89 will help bring together many sec- tors of the marine industry, includ- ing electronics, communications, navigation and electric equipment suppliers, shipbuilders and ship re- pairers, diesel engine and propul- sion equipment manufacturers, and other marine systems, services and parts companies. Exhibition hours will be 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Monday,

February 20, and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., on Tuesday, February 21.

Mr. Clarke noted that the 1988 technical conference and exhibition attracted well over 900 persons from across Canada and around the world, including international me- dia and government officials.

Call For Papers For

Symposium On National

Shipbuilding Research

The National Shipbuilding Re- search Program Ship Production

Symposium, which will be held Sep- tember 13-15, 1989, at the Sheraton

National Hotel in Crystal City,

Washington, D.C., is soliciting un- classified abstracts and papers on a wide range of topics related to ad- vanced shipbuilding procedures.

The symposium provides a forum for technologists, potential users (commercial, industrial and mili- tary), and concerned others to ex- change and discuss new ideas in the field of advanced shipbuilding pro- cedures. The theme of this sympo- sium is "Advancing the Integration of Ship Design, Production and Re- pair."

Papers are being solicited which present the results of research or practices that advance the art/ science of ship design, production and repair processes. Topical areas may include: New Build Strategies for Ship Production, Innovative De- sign Methodologies, Ship Produc- tion Operations and Economics, Ap- plication of Emerging Technologies,

Shipyard Management Innovations, and any other areas that result in increased quality,improved produc- tivity or reduced cost.

Twenty-four papers are planned to be presented during the three- day symposium, which is being sponsored by the Ship Production

Committee and hosted by the Ches- apeake Section of The Society of

Naval Architects and Marine Engi- neers (SNAME).

The deadline for submitting ab- stracts, which should be no more than 500 words, is February 28, 1989. Abstracts should include pa- per title, principal author, organiza- tion, address and telephone num- ber. Notice of acceptance will be issued on March 31, 1989, with final manuscript due June 15, 1989.

Abstracts should be sent to Rob- ert W. Schaffran, Head, Manu- facturing Systems Division (Code 185), David Taylor Research Cen- ter, Bethesda, Md. 20084-5000.

Shieldings To Buy

Versatile Pacific

B.C. Pacific Capital Corporation recently signed an agreement to sell its wholly owned subsidiary Versa- tile Pacific Shipyards Inc. to Shield- ings Incorporated, a private, Cana- dian-owned company headquar- tered in Toronto and Vancouver which has a number of major invest- ments in manufacturing and other business sectors throughout Cana- da.

Versatile Pacific, which is one of the largest shipbuilders and ship repairers in western Canada, oper- ates two yards, one in Vancouver and one in Victoria. The shipbuilder has an order backlog of about C$50 million, including a C$16.4-million contract to build a hydrographic survey vessel and a C$35.1-million order for the construction of two

Type 500 search and rescue vessels, and is expected to shortly sign a contract with the Canadian Govern- ment worth C$347 million to build a

Polar Class 8 icebreaker.

Shieldings is purchasing the ship- builder with the intention of arrang- ing significant industrial diversifica- tion to enhance and strengthen the future operations of Versatile Pa- cific Shipyards.

The closing of the sale and trans- fer of ownership is expected in early 1989.
