Call for papers

The International Symposium on Marine Engineering and Technology (ISMT2017) provides a regular symposium for the presentation of cutting edge research in marine engineering to both academic and industry researchers. Continuing with a series of successful previous meetings, this symposium has been extending the interest are as of marine engineering.  We aim at not only advancing the development of marine engineering technology and its applications, but also discussing the future of marine engineering, focusing on the theme: “Autonomous ship and eco-ship in Marine Engineering”.  ISMT2017 will be held at Busan Exhibition and Convention Center (BEXCO), Busan, Republic of Korea on October 26-27, 2017. ISMT2017 will be co-located with International Marine, Shipbuilding, Offshore, Oil and Gas Exhibition (KORMARINE2017) on October 24-27, 2017. ISMT and KORMARINE will run concurrently on October 26-27 and share a joint special session.
