ICSOT Korea 2015
15-16 September 2015, Busan, South Korea
In deep-water operations, offshore installations may face extreme or accidental events in association with general, or site-specific, conditions. Such hazards include: leaks of gas and/ or oil, collisions, human error, structural failure, and blowouts. These emergency events sometimes result in catastrophic consequences that can lead to casualties, property damage and pollution. It is the responsibility of the designer, builder and operator to develop, and integrate, safety measures developed to mitigate the consequences from such hazards.
While systems and instillations are designed to operate to a degree of safety, successful engineering and design should meet not only functional requirements but also HSE & E (health, safety, environment & ergonomics) requirements. HSE & E requirements address safe performance and integrity in extreme and accidental conditions, while functional requirements represent operability in normal conditions. In the process of engineering and design, safety studies are required to assure the integrity of offshore installations in the case of extreme or accidental events.
RINA invites papers from naval architects, class societies, operators, researchers, and builders on all related topics, including:
- Health, Safety, Environment & Ergonomics (HSE & E)
- Hazard identification and risk assessment and management
- Damage assessment
- Advanced numerical modelling methods
- Load analysis and the associated structural analysis
- Rules, guidance and recommended practices

Registration and Payment methods
Payments must be made in sterling by Eurocheque, cheque drawn on a bank with a UK branch address or sterling bank transfer. Please note that RINA requires payment before the conference date.
Cancellations received in writing two weeks before the event takes place will be subject to an administration charge of £200. Cancellations received after this time cannot be accepted and are subject to the full event fee. Delegates may be substituted; however this must be sent in writing and confirmed with the Conference Co-ordinator. In the event of cancellation of the programme for any reason, our liability is limited to the return of the registration fee.
The conference will be held in the Crystall Hall, Hotel Nongshim, 23, Geumganggongwon-ro 20beon-gil,Dongnae-gu, Busan, South Korea.
Located in Busan (Dongnae District), Hotel Nongshim is minutes from Busan Marine Natural History Museum and Geumgang Park. This 4-star hotel is within close proximity of Bokcheon Museum and Pusan National University. It is 10 kilometers (6.5 miles) north of central Busan and is approximately 13.3 km / 8.3 miles away from Busan (PUS-Gimhae) airport.
Busan, a large port city situated on the most south-eastern portion of the Korean peninsula, is Korea’s number one trading port and the world’s fifth largest container port. It is considered Korea's first truly international city connecting Asia, Europe, and North America.
Busan is known for its beaches, hot springs, nature reserves and events such as the city's renowned international film festival held each fall. It is truly a city in which one can experience and enjoy an authentic taste of Korea’s unique oriental heritage.
