Southern California Sections Of American Society Of Naval Engineers To Hold Centennial Symposium
February 18-19, San Diego, California The purpose of the symposium is to provide government and industry personnel with a forum to ponder the challenges that will confront the naval engineering profession in the future. The aim is to stimulate serious thought on how to improve the naval engineer's ability to apply engineering and technology to the design, construction and ownership of naval ships, aircraft and combat systems. The symposium will concentrate on the role of the engineer and what will be required of him.
Leaders from government, industry and academia will present a technical program on the practice of naval engineering and the human element in modern seagoing technology.
Among the notable speakers will be Vice Adm. William H.
Rowden, USN, Commander, Naval Sea Systems Command, who will present the keynote address on Thursday, February 18, and Vice Adm. Benedict L. Stabile, USCG (Ret.), president of Webb Institute of Naval Architecture, who will present "Naval Engineering—Is the Past Prologue?" at lunch on February 18. Thursday evening's banquet speaker is scheduled to be Adm.
Kinnaird R. McKee, USN, Director, Navy Nuclear Power.
On Friday morning, February 19, a panel of experts, moderated by Capt. Clark C. Graham, USN, Commander, David Taylor Naval Ships Research & Developmental Center, will discuss the technological and human challenges facing naval engineers. The panel will include: Lester Rosenblatt, M. Rosenblatt & Son and former president of the Society of Naval Archit e c t s and Marine Engineers (SNAME); Vice Adm. George Davis, USN, Commander, Naval Surface Forces-Pacific; Ronald K.
Kiss, Director of Shipbuilding, Office of Assistant Secretary of the Navy; Arnold P. Moore, director of design engineering, Ingalls Shipbuilding; and Capt. H.V. Habermeyer, USN, commandant of midshipmen, U.S. Naval Academy.
There will also be technical sessions on "Personal Perspectives" and "Man's Relationship to Combat System Technology." A special exhibit at the symposium will display the America's Cup, regained last year by Dennis Connor, after he had lost it to the Alan Bond Syndicate of Australia in 1983.
The Southern California Sections of the American Society of Naval Engineers (ASNE) will hold a symposium entitled "Naval Engineering— The Challenge of the Next 100 Years" in honor of the society's centennial on February 18-19 in San Diego, Calif. The symposium, which is also being sponsored by the Su- pervisors of Shipbuilding, Conversion and Repair of San Diego and Long Beach and the Naval Weapons Engineering Station, Port Hueneme, will be held at the Hotel Del Coronado, Coronado, Calif.
