The 19th International Conference on Ships and Maritime Research
The NAV conference, organized by “Associazione Italiana di Tecnica Navale”, is the major Italian scientific event on marine technology issues. The conference will take place in three days, covering the whole spectrum of maritime technology themes, with particular attention to new methods for the use of the sea as a source of energy and resources. About 200 papers are expected which will be shown in parallel sessions and in conjunction with specific workshops. The NAV 2018 conference will take place in Trieste, with the aim of highlighting the scientific, technological and industrial world. For this purpose, a Committee of Honor with the personalities of excellence of the Italian maritime world has been set up, giving them the role of “ambassadors” of the conference. Since next October, before the NAV conference, a series of monthly events on maritime themes, open to all the citizens, will be organized.
