ASNE DAY 91 'Naval Engineering In The Changing Defense Structure'

The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) will celebrate 103 years as an individual member professional society this year with a technical program and exhibit show that emphasizes the role of the naval engineering community in the rapidly advancing and changing world of defense technology. The ASNE Day event, which actually consists of a two-day program, is appropriately titled, "Naval Engineering in the Changing Defense Structure." Last year the program focused on "The Increasing Dimensions of Naval Engineering." According to an ASNE spokesman, ASNE Day '90 drew more than 2,500 attendees and 120 exhibits were on display featuring some of the latest equipment products and services supplied to the naval sector. Twenty-four technical presentations were also given focusing on such topics as naval warfare, logistics, engineering education, the future of the Navy, and naval engineering research and experimentation.

This year's show is expected to be equally as successful. Held May 2-3, 1991 at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C., ASNE Day 1991 will again feature 24 technical presentations on the full range of naval engineering related subjects, delivered by highly regarded members of the naval engineering community.

In addition, over 120 companies that manufacture materials for the defense industry are expected to exhibit the most recent and sophisticated state-of-the-art equipment and systems currently available.

"A solid technical program has been assembled," said ASNE president Rear Adm. Lowell J. Hollo way, USN, "with subjects ranging from naval contingency to materials, from rapid prototyping to maintenance, as ASNE continues to be a true full spectrum society." Speakers for the annual meeting include Adm. David E. Jeremiah, USN, Vice Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff; Gerald Cann, Assistant Secretary of the Navy for Research, Development and Acquisitions; and Dr. Robert M. White, president of the National Academy of Engineering, will deliver the Fourth Annual Isherwood Lecture. Secretary of Energy, Adm. James D. Watkins, USN (Ret.), has been invited to address the ASNE Presidents Club Luncheon.

The society will continue its tradition of presenting its prestigious awards in recognition for superior achievements in the naval engineering discipline; special volunteerrelated service to the society; the best original technical paper published in the Naval Engineers Journal, and its Gold Medal Award for accomplishments made over the past five years.

Registration materials were sent to ASNE's 8,000 members in mid- March, and all attendees, and especially government personnel, are encouraged to send in registrations as soon as possible. Purchase order numbers for government registrants are usually forwarded directly to ASNE the week prior to the meeting.

The exhibit hall will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days of the annual meeting, at no charge, but visitors who are not registered will be required to obtain a name badge at the ASNE registration office at the Omni Shoreham Hotel prior to touring the displays. For additional information, contact the ASNE offices at 1452 Duke Street, Alexandria, Va. 22314-3458, or call (703) 836-6727.
