About ISSXIV - Intelligent Ships Symposium 2021

Coming April 28-29, 2021, ASNE's biennial conference Intelligent Ships Symposium (ISS)! The Intelligent Ships Symposium brings the professional naval engineering community together to present the latest technological advancements from keynote speakers, technical presentations and expert panels comprised of subject matter experts and leaders from academia, industry, and government. ISS is generally held in Philadelphia, PA. Due to our current state, we are evaluating if we will have to go virtual. Either way in-person or virtual, the ISS Planning Committee is busy creating an engaging 2 day agenda. The emphasis of this year's symposium will be on recent advances in Intelligent Systems and the challenges that lie ahead for the next generation of Intelligent ships.

Be on the lookout for more ISS details to come!

For assistance or event questions, please email: virtualevents@navalengineers.org or call ASNE HQ at 703-836-6727.
