SNAME 2006 Special Events Wednesday, October 11, 2006 Course 1 - A Review of Basic Naval Architecture Wednesday, October 11, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm - Room 223 Fee: Member $175; Non-member $300 Course Description: This course will feature a review of naval architecture that will cover the principles and development of lines drawings, ship hydrostatics, the use of Simpson's Rule, intact and damage stability, tonnage admeasurement, weight estimating, longitudinal strength, principles of structure, resistance, and basic principles of arrangements. Sample problems illustrating naval architecture theory will also be discussed. Attendees will be asked to work one problem in naval architecture at the end of the seven-hour session. The attendees' solutions will be discussed. The course lecturer is William H. Garzke, Jr., a naval architect for CSC, Advanced Marine. The course is equivalent to 0.7 Continuing Education units. Course 2 - Introduction to the Design of Floating Offshore Oil and Gas Facilities Wednesday, October 11, 9:00 am - 5:00 pm - Room 222 Fee: Member $175; Non-member $300 Course Description: Floating offshore oil and gas production, storage, and offloading facilities continue to serve the offshore industry and provide energy around the world. The purpose of this continuing education short course is provide naval architects, marine and ocean engineers, and other interested conference participants an introduction to the design practices for the development of floating offshore oil and gas production facilities. The topics covered include a brief history of offshore production facilities, general design process, regulatory and class societies, environmental data and extreme meteorological events (hurricane, cyclone) that control the design, evaluation of environmental loads, hull types (semi submersibles, tension leg platforms, spars, and ship shapes) and arrangements, weight distribution and stability, and mooring systems. Example calculations for the design of a selected floating offshore production facility will be conducted to demonstrate the design concepts presented. All participants will be provided instructors presentation slides and receive a certificate of completion. The course lecturer is Dr. Robert E. Randall, Professor of Ocean 38 Engineering at Texas A&M University in College Station, Texas The course is equivalent to 0.7 Continuing Education units. Student Social Palm B - 2:00pm - 3:30pm The kick off event for the Student Program. Start the conference off by meeting your fellow students from throughout North America and the world. This will be a great time to break the ice and make new friends. This event leads directly into the Student Congress. Conference registration badge required. Ticket: None Required Conference registration badge required. Student Congress (Design & Build) Palm B - 3:30pm - 6:00pm The Student Congress is the highlight event of the Student Program. It offers students an opportunity to work with fellow students and gives them the chance to show off their skills of engineering and ingenuity. Teams of students are formed and a naval architecture/marine engineering related design problem is given. A limited amount of time and materials are given to each group, which is tasked with designing and building a vessel to best solve the posed problem. This is very much like "Junkyard Wars" only on an even more compressed time schedule. Each team's design will be water tested on the following day (see Thursday's schedule below). Conference registration badge required. President's Reception Ft. Lauderdale Grande Hotel & Yacht Club- Atlantic Terrace & Ballroom 6:00pm-9:30pm Take advantage of the first networking opportunity of the SMTC, and attend the prestigious President's Reception.

Expo Grand Opening and Morning Refreshments Expo Hall D - 9:45am - 11:00am Don't miss the grand opening of the SNAME Maritime Technology Expo, held in partnership with Maritime Reporter/Marine News. Be among the first to experience the Expo while you enjoy coffee and refreshments. Visit the booths to learn about the maritime industry's newest technologies and products. Ticket: None required. Complimentary with Conference or Exposition registration badge. Student Steering Committee Meeting & Student Congress Palm A - 12:00n - 1:00pm Just like the "Junkyard Wars" TV show, students will be allowed approximately 10 minutes to "tweak" their designs prior to testing. However, before the "tweaking", the Student Steering Committee will hold a brief student meeting to discuss student related progress within SNAME and to have it's elections for officers. The entire Student Program of the SMTC&E is organized and run by the SSC and its officers. However, the SSC does much more than that. The SSC is tasked with the job of promoting student participation and recognition with SNAME. As such, its officers are taking proactive steps to enhance SNAME student membership. Conference registration badge required. Student Congress (Test Phase), Awards Lunch Expo Hall D 1:00pm - 2:30pm Following the SSC meeting, officer elections, and the "tweaking" of the students' designs, we will move to the Expo Hall where a testing pool awaits the all important testing phase of the competition. Each team will present their design and test it for its capabilities in front of a standing room only crowd. The student teams often have many nail biting moments as they hope their design not only floats, but that it can do the task at hand. A panel of five judges, made up of industry professionals, score the teams based on performance, design, and teamwork. While these scores are tallied, student winners of the SNAME Student Paper Awards and several design competitions will be awarded, followed by the winner of the Student Congress. Conference registration badge required. Lunch Expo Hall D - 1:00pm - 2:30pm Have lunch in the Expo Hall, as you continue your time visiting exhibitors and learning about new products and technologies. Stroll through the Expo, or take advantage of the special seating café' in the back of the hall to catch up with friends over lunch. Exhibitors are ready and waiting to answer your questions on their products and organizations. Ticket: Required. Complimentary with All Conference Registration Fees, except Spouse/Companion or Course Registration All Other Attendees: $25 per person Student Job Fair Palm A - 3:00pm - 5:30pm Looking for a job or just curious about what the industry has to offer? The Student Job Fair is open to all students attending the SMTC&E. In previous years, a wide range of companies have attended, looking for young and capable engineers. Be sure to bring plenty of copies of your resumé. Check back often for a listing of companies registered to attend. If you are a company interested in participating in the Student Job Fair please contact Matthew Unger firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
