The international problem of a decreasing world's fuel supply, as both demand and cost are increasing, will be addressed by the maritime community in a symposium, to be presented by the New York Metropolitan Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers on September 22 and 23, 1980, at the Waldorf- Astoria Hotel in New York City.
On Monday morning, September 22, the symposium will open with a paper summarizing a study conducted by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences Maritime Transportation R e s e a r c h Board, which will be concluded with panel discussion. The morning session will be completed with dual presentation of papers on lowspeed geared diesel engines and steam turbine technical modifications in the hotel's Jade Room and Astor Salon.
Dual sessions will be held for the remainder of the symposium, with themes as follows: Monday, p.m. — Jade Room, "Fuel Economy"; Astor Salon, "Hull Form Forum." Tuesday, a.m. — Jade Room, "Hull Roughness"; Astor Salon, "Steam Power Plants." Tuesday, p.m. — Jade Room, "Propellers and Propulsion De- vices"; Astor Salon, "Alternate Fuels and Propulsion Plant Economy." A panel of experts from maritime research and production will comment on hull form during the Hull Form Forum on Monday afternoon and respond to participation by the audience. Members of the panel are Mel Colen of Avondale Shipyards, Peter Fitzgerald of Exxon, Karl Kirkman of Hydromatics, Jacques Hadler of Webb Institute of Naval Architecture, James Robinson of the Naval Ship Research and Development Center, and Aake Williams of The Swedish Maritime Research Council.
As part of the symposium, a luncheon will be held each day at the Waldorf-Astoria. The luncheons will feature talks by Samuel Nemirow, U.S. Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Maritime Affairs, on Monday; and by Colin P. Carter, vice president of energy economics, Chase Manhattan Bank, on Tuesday.
Forms for symposium registration and for hotel reservations have been mailed to SNAME members. Nonmembers who desire registration material should write to Joseph Cotter, P.O. Box 294, Rye, N.Y. 10580.
