The second International Conference on Ships and Offshore Structures (ICSOS) will be hosted at the South University of Science and Technology of China in Shenzhen from 11.09.2017 to 13.09.2017 in agreement and cooperation with Professor Jeom Kee Paik and his Journal of Ships and Offshore Structures. 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 Ships and Offshore Structures journal (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 at the conference,

Yong Bai & Sören Ehlers & Jeom Kee Paik
