INEC/ISCSS 2020 – Call for papers

Event Date:
Start at 8:00 AM
October 6, 2020 - October 8, 2020

INEC 2020 lays down the challenge to Naval Engineers to look forward 10 years and devise how we can more rapidly integrate the best of the technical and intellectual leading edge into our Navies while sustaining our safety, reliability and cost-effectiveness.

As we enter a new decade the pace of change and extent of innovation will be both a challenge and opportunity which may fundamentally alter our current assumptions about Naval Engineering. Disruptive technologies have the potential to create a step change in the way we design, build, operate and fight our ships and submarines.

Given our theme, it is highly beneficial that INEC will continue to incorporate the International Ship Control Systems Symposium (iSCSS). The partnership was very successful in 2018 in Glasgow and our links provide a breadth of technical view that remains unique in the Naval sector.

The aim of INEC2020 is to provide those who design, build, operate and maintain ships and submarines including students and researchers, with a platform to share ideas, create networks, promote good practise and demonstrate excellence in our global and diverse domain. Delft University of Technology will provide an excellent venue for us to come together to develop our common enterprise.

Key dates

Close of Call for Papers Monday 16 December 2019

Notification to successful authors Friday 7 February 2020

Submission process

The Technical Advisory Committee encourages synopses from all areas of industry, academia and government.

Prospective authors are invited to submit titles, keywords and synopses of between 250 and 500 words (text only) through EasyChair by Monday 16 December 2019.

Synopses must be original and not simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference, and only one synopsis may be associated with each lead author.

If all named authors are 35 years of age or under at the time of the conference, they may enter their paper for the Sir Donald Gosling Award.

Submissions will be reviewed based on technical quality, relevance to the conference themes and their potential for generating interest and discussion. Successful authors will then be asked to develop and submit a full technical paper of up to 4000 words by Mon 18 May 2020.

All papers will be peer reviewed, and authors of accepted papers will then be invited to present these at the conference in October 2020. All presentations will be in English.

Accepted papers will be published in accordance with the IMarEST’s Open Access Policy and issued a DOI.
