The International Naval Engineering Conference and Exhibition is the foremost professional event in the naval engineer's calendar and in 2020 seeks to build on previous successes and expand its international credentials.
In light of the ongoing uncertainty surrounding organised events and international travel in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, the IMarEST and the INEC/iSCSS Technical Advisory Committee have taken the decision to continue with the INEC / iSCSS 2020 conference in a virtual online format.
INEC 2020 at a glance:
The virtual INEC / iSCSS 2020 conference will take place between 5 – 9 October and consist of a series of mixed-format livestreamed sessions (panel discussions, presentations) led by authors and leading figures from the naval engineering and ship control systems communities, and will be facilitated by the use of an event app which will provide participants with the opportunity to access all content, including the full conference proceedings and exhibitor information, as well as network with other virtual delegates.
The INEC/iSCSS 2020 programme will comprise a series of live panel discussions with the authors whose papers are on the same topic of the Conference. The panel session will consist of short interviews led by the Chair(s) with each of the authors in turn, followed by a broader discussion between the authors. Virtual delegates may submit questions using Slido for the panel Chair to put to the authors. Most of the sessions are in two 45 minutes segments on similar topics.
Since the programme does not allow for authors to give their presentations in a live format, there is an opportunity for authors to submit pre-recorded presentations on their paper. These will be available to watch on-demand by all registered delegates.

Over 100 peer-reviewed technical papers
International participation from over 20 countries
Sir Donald Gosling Award

All technical papers published Open Access and assigned a DOI (Digital Object Identifier) reference
A new event app where delegates can access the programme content, virtually network with other delegates, and interact with sponsors and exhibitors
