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.

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.
