The venue for the 18th International Conference on Computer Applications in Shipbuilding (ICCAS), to be held in 2017, has been announced as Singapore. Singapore ICCAS 2017

This follows the noteworthy success of the 17th ICCAS in 2015 at Bremen, Germany, in which a programme of 81 high quality papers from 19 countries, selected from submitted abstracts, was presented to delegates.

ICCAS offers unequalled opportunity for international delegates from the global shipbuilding and marine industry to see practical application of computing technologies across all aspects of design, production, and in-service operation of ships and marine structures.

ICCAS includes papers on all aspects of shipbuilding.

With the increasing demand for floating platforms and specialist support and supply ships for offshore operations, ICCAS recognises that shipbuilding and offshore industry requirements involve increasingly common design and manufacturing processes, practices and computer applications.

ICCAS 2017 will welcome the submission of papers from the offshore industry.
