The fourth International Conference on Ships and Offshore Structures (ICSOS) will be hosted by Professor Prasanta K Sahoo from the Florida Institute of Technology. The conference will be held on board the Carnival Cruise Ship Liberty from November 4 to November 8 2019. The cruise will take us from Port Canaveral to the Bahamas and back with 3 full days on board for the conference.

If you want to take part as a presenter or listener, then you must follow our strict registration and reservation payment schedule to reserve a cabin – the first reservation payment of USD 50/person must be made by November 15 2018. This payment is fully refundable by July 1st 2019, should you decide otherwise. Without this reservation payment we can not offer a cabin for you.

The conference seeks to provide a platform for selected high quality papers, from where the majority will be promoted to a special issue of the Journal of Ships and Offshore Structures (SAOS). The promotion process will be an essential part of ICSOS and allows for a time efficient inclusion of Your contribution into SAOS.

To ensure that only high quality papers will be presented at the conference, ICSOS is very pleased to be backed-up by an outstanding international scientific committee. The committee members will support abstract selection and the thorough review of the submitted papers, both for the conference and for the special issue of the journal.

We are looking forward to your submissions and to seeing you on board,

Prasanta Sahoo, Sören Ehlers & Jeom Kee Paik
