ICCAS 2019 - International Conference on Computer Applications in Shipbuilding - Call for Papers
24 - 26 September 2019, Rotterdam
The venue for the 19th International Conference on Computer Applications in Shipbuilding (ICCAS), to be held in 2019, has been announced as Rotterdam.
Continuing the noteworthy success of previous conferences, 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 will include papers on all aspects of shipbuilding. Delegates can understand the implementation, success and benefits of applying computing technologies in the industry to improve methodologies, processes and productivity.
A popular delegate event is a conference visit a local shipyard.
ICCAS encourages papers on all applications of computing and information technologies for use within the Shipbuilding, Marine, and Ship Operation related industries.
The primary topics for ICCAS conferences are typically:
- Evaluation, selection and implementation of a new system.
- Enhancement and/or improved use of existing computing and IT systems.
- Efficient use of data and information captured in Computing Systems.
- Research and development of a future applications of Computing Technologies the industry.
- Vendor development of system capabilities and/or functionality.
- A vision of the future potential use of Computing Technologies within the industry.
- Using Computing Technologies in a collaborative or multi-site environment.
- Procedures and practices implemented to maximise use and benefits of Computing Technologies.
- Improvements in productivity and/or performance due to the use of Computing Technologies.
- Success in applying advanced technologies (such as simulation, AR/VR, Engineering Analysis, Digital Manufacturing, Big Data, Digital Twin, Knowledge Systems, etc).
- Improvements in manufacturing quality/accuracy/productivity due to computing methodologies.
- Topics not listed above that are relevant to the industry, which are also acceptable.
ICCAS attracts topics from any stage of a ship lifecycle, from concept and early design, through detail design, planning and project management, manufacturing, production and assembly, build, and in-service operation.
Topics such as a supplier using computing technology to enhance equipment performance, a classification society that uses computing technologies to improve the quality and format of data for approval assessment, or a ship operator using computing technologies to optimise performance, are very welcome.
ICCAS particularly welcomes papers discussing the practical application of the topic in production, or proven during field trials.
