RINA invites papers from designers, class societies, operators, researchers and builders on all related topics, including:

  • Vessel design: hull forms, general arrangements, interior designs, etc, especially those with innovative features
  • Class society and national/international statutory requirements, including the impact of new rules and regulations on this sector
  • Powering and propulsion: including the ever-increasing take-up of hybrid-electric (and, in some cases, pure-electric) propulsive systems
  • Seakeeping and manoeuvrability
  • Provisions for the carriage of increasing numbers of turbine technicians, plus larger cargo volumes
  • Crew safety and comfort
  • Crucial lessons learned from ‘Phase 1’ of dedicated WFSV design

Authors of selected papers will be invited to submit their paper for publication in the International Journal of Maritime Engineering.
