ASNE Day 2001 To Feature Timely Technical Papers, Informative Exhibits
The American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) annual exhibition, conference, and annual meeting, ASNE Day 2001, is set for April 30 - May 1, 2001 at the Hyatt Regency Crystal City Hotel in Arlington, Va.
Attendees and exhibitors will have the opportunity to see the latest products on display and to listen to military leaders and industry executives discuss issues critical to naval engineering as we enter the next millennium.
ASNE Day events begin Monday, April 30 with a plenary session. The conference's keynote speaker is RADM Jay M. Cohen, USN. Chief of Naval Research. Admiral Cohen's address will focus on the ASNE Day 2001 theme, "Technology Insertion in the 21st Century Fleet." and will discuss the important role the Office of Naval Research plays in meeting the future needs of the Fleet. His address will be followed by a panel discussion on Technology Insertion with senior representatives from Naval Sea Systems Command. Program Executive Offices, and the Navy Laboratories.
After the plenary session, ASNE will recognize the technical program's authors and moderators, and present the ASNE's prestigious Sol- berg, Jimmy Hamilton, and Claud A.
Jones Awards at the Awards Luncheon.
This year's luncheon speaker is ADM William J. Fallon, USN, Vice Chief of Naval Operations. The admiral is expected to provide a firsthand perspective on the readiness and modernization challenges facing the Navy today and in the future.
After the luncheon, the technical paper program commences with two concurrent technical session tracks.
The technical program will include six sessions of technical papers presentations with topics including Technology Insertion in Today's Fleet; Ship Design and Modeling; Shipboard Equipment; Shipboard Diagnostics; Naval Logistics; and Maritime Environmental/Logistics.
