Over 500 papers have been presented and published in both Chinese and English at the annual China International Conference on High Performance Marine Vessels, which is now in its 19th year and which has become an important forum for the discussion of technical and scientific matters relating to high performance marine vessels both in China and overseas.

High performance marine vessels for both commercial and recreational use continue to be developed to meet a wider range of roles and more demanding operating conditions. The high speed maritime industry is seeking to extend its operating envelopes, reduce downtime and increase reliability, safety and comfort. The use of new materials and more efficient production methods are being explored to reduce costs.

HPMV China 2014 will again bring together representatives of international maritime industry and academia to present and discuss developments relating to a wide range of high performance marine vessels, including small planning craft, paramilitary vessels, passenger ferries, freight carriers and recreational craft. Monohull, multihull, ACV/SES/WIG/HYF, and novel hull designs will all be covered.



The Conference will be co-located with the China International Boat Show.

This very successful Show, now in its 19th year, will provide speakers and delegates with the opportunity to meet representatives of the Chinese and International boat industry, and discuss new developments in boat and equipment manufacture.



Green or Energy Saving Marine vessels will become a hot topic for 2014 version of HPMV Conference. The Conference welcomes any subjects of the following aspects:

  • Hydrodynamics
  • Structures
  • Propulsion
  • Design and production technologies
  • Materials
  • Safety, Regulation and Classification
  • Motion control
  • Shore facilities
  • Operations
  • Maritime Environment

The language of the Conference is English.



The Conference will be held at Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Centre, which is also the venue of the 19th China (Shanghai) International Boat Show during 10-13 April, 2014.



A programme of technical and social events and field trip to some famous special companies or factories in the ship industry will be arranged during and after the Conference. There are also many attractive activities hold on this Boat Show.
