The 19th International Ship Stability Workshop (ISSW2023) will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, between September 11-13, 2023Download the flyer!

The International Ship Stability Workshop (ISSW) and the International Conference on Stability of Ships and Ocean Vehicles (STAB) are the most prestigious professional meetings in the field of ship stability and safety. The workshops attract many distinguished international researchers, representatives of shipowners, shipyards, classification societies, shipping authorities and other stakeholders. The main topics of the ISSW focus primarily on new developments in the field. The format of the workshop enables the participants interested in current research and development to in-depth discussions in an informal manner.

About the workshop

The 19th International Ship Stability Workshop follows the long-standing series of international technical meetings in the field of ship and marine vessel stability. This series consists of STAB conferences, held every three years (since 1975), and the International Ship Stability Workshops (ISSW), held in the years between the conferences.

For years, the STAB conferences and the associated International Ship Stability Workshops have been the definitive meeting events for maritime researchers and professionals in ship stability and safety. While the STAB conferences cover a wide range of topics related to ship and marine vessel stability, the workshops usually focus on specific topics that are particularly important and reflect the latest developments in the field. The workshop format allows the leading scientists and practitioners for in-depth discussions. This creates a very conducive environment for the participants and clearly contributes to the development of new breakthrough solutions in the field.

ISSW addresses current problems in theoretical, numerical and physical modelling and understanding of ship stability, advances in ship dynamics and the development of new stability regulations.

The upcoming ISSW will be held in Istanbul, Turkey, between September 11-13, 2023.

In accordance with the traditional scheme of the International Ship Stability Workshop, speakers are invited by the chairs of each session.
