13 June 2023 Journal of Marine Science and Engineering Webinar | Marine Renewable Energy and the Transition to a Low Carbon Future, 13 June 2023


In this webinar, our focus will be on advances and challenges in the extraction of offshore renewable energy. Offshore renewable energy sources are abundant, and the amount of energy that can be generated using existing technologies varies from site to site and day to day, depending on the location and weather conditions.

As we are all aware, a drastic reduction in CO2 emissions and transition to a low-carbon future represents an issue of increasing importance. From this perspective, the extraction of clean offshore renewable energy is a very important issue. On the other hand, the technologies associated with offshore renewable energy are significant for achieving the expected energy efficiency and environmental protection targets. Although significant advances have been made in extracting various forms of offshore renewable energy, there are still important challenges related to the implementation of cost-effective technologies that could survive in harsh marine environments.

Such aspects will be discussed in this webinar, which seeks to contribute to the renewable energy agenda and to improve knowledge and performance in harvesting offshore renewable energy.

12–16 June 2023 30th CIMAC WORLD CONGRESS | Combustion Engine Technology for Ship Propulsion | Power Generation | Rail Traction

Busan, Republic of Korea

The Congress is a unique opportunity to keep up to date with what is happening in the internal combustion engine industry and along the value chain, to talk to other professionals from all over the world, to stay in dialogue, and to discuss the topics that interest us most or that are particularly pressing for us and for the industry.

South Korea will host the 30th edition of the Congress since the founding of the association back in 1951. This proud tradition proves how important and how indispensable this global meeting is. South Korea is hosting the CIMAC Congress for the first time—a suitable choice considering how the country and its important shipbuilding industry have asserted themselves on the world market and have continuously occupied a leading position for a long time.

We are pleased to be hosted in Busan with its outstanding port. Its depth and low tidal differences have helped Busan become the largest container-handling port in the country and the fifth largest in the world.

28 August–1 September 2023 The 12th International Workshop on Ship and Marine Hydrodynamics

Espoo, Finland

The 12th International Workshop on Ship and Marine Hydrodynamics (IWSH 2023) will take place at Aalto University, Espoo, Finland, from the 28th of August to the 1st of September 2023. The workshop is normally a biannual event with a focus on marine engineering, ship hydrodynamics, and floating renewable energy that provides researchers and engineers from around the world with the opportunity to present and discuss recent developments in the field. The scope of the workshop topics will be on theoretical, experimental, and numerical research, as well as a combination of these. The event will offer a pleasant environment in which to establish new avenues of cooperation and work. As an incentive, the best student submissions will be acknowledged with a Best Student Paper Award.


The scope of the conference will be broad, covering all issues related to the hydrodynamics of ships and ocean engineering, including offshore renewable energy. Specific themes include, but are not limited to, the following:

  • Linear and nonlinear waves and currents;
  • Ship dynamics and hydrodynamics for design (resistance, propulsion, seakeeping, maneuvering, hull form, and propulsion optimization);
  • Sea loads and responses, such as slamming, sloshing, green water, run-up, ice, impact on ships, and floating offshore installations (e.g., breakwaters, FLNG, FSRU, semisubmersibles, etc.);
  • Propeller cavitation, erosion, and cavitating flows;
  • Computational fluid dynamics, digital twins, numerical wave tank, and virtual displaying systems;
  • Coupled problems, including fluid–structure interactions, ship hydroelasticity and hydroelastoplasticity, underwater noise, ice–wave–structure interactions, and the aerohydrodynamic loading of floating wind turbines;
  • Emerging numerical methods and bioinspired hydrodynamics;
  • The hydrodynamic performance of high-speed vessels and floating offshore installations;
