MARTECH 2018 - 4th International Conference on Maritime Technology and Engineering
The National Conferences in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering began in 1987 with the joint organization of Instituto Superior Técnico and the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Section of the Portuguese Association of Engineers (Colégio de Engenharia Naval da Ordem dos Engenheiros).
The 11 editions of the event were initially organized annually, becoming later a bi-annual event including one edition in 1997 organized together with the Association of Naval Architects of Spain.
Previous editions have constituted a regular forum for the presentation of ongoing work in the sector, creating the opportunity for technical and scientific debate of matters related with the various fields linked to the Portuguese maritime sector, with the aim of contributing to its progress. In 2011 it was decided to extend the conference beyond national borders, giving the event an international dimension, and by doing so, reflecting the really international nature of present day business and academic activities.
At the same time and at the same location the traditional national Conference will be held in Portuguese in parallel sessions. The scope of the Conference is broad, covering all aspects of the maritime activity including:
• Ship Design (structures, hydrodynamics, machinery)
• Ship Building and Repair
• Maritime Transportation and Ports
• Fishing and Aquaculture
• Energy Resources
• Military and Surveillance Vessels
• Recreational Craft and Maritime Tourism
The official language of the event will be English.
