Post-Conference News: 

Dear Friends and Colleagues: 

The 11th International Conference and Exhibition on Ships and Structures in Ice (ICETECH 2014) took place July 28-31, 2014. It was organized by the Arctic Section of the Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers, and was held at the Banff Conference Centre in beautiful Banff, Alberta, Canada. We gratefully acknowledge the support and dedication of SNAME in the realization of this exciting and successful event.

The theme and subject areas of the conference complement the growing interest in Arctic shipping and in oil, gas and mineral exploration and production in Arctic offshore regions. In 2014 we drew attention to the importance of climate change on Arctic operations – hence: looking to the future in a warming world. There were 7 plenary and 50 technical presentations – covering a wide range of specialty topics within our theme of performance in ice, with emphasis on icebreaking ships, ice resistant structures, and operations in ice. These were presented during the conference by authors from around the globe. The 2014 Post-Conference Proceedings, whenever possible, contain both a manuscript and presentation for each technical paper, as well as summaries of the two conference workshops: (1) Arctic EER and (2) Climate Change Implications.

163 delegates from Canada and around the world attended the conference, participating in the technical sessions, the panels, and ICETECH’s social events. The Banff Centre, nestled amidst the beauty and splendor of the Canadian Rockies, proved to once again be the ideal host venue. Approximately 20 people took part in the Accompanying Persons Program. The 2014 Program  includes an overview of the social and accompanying persons programs. View photos from ICETECH 2014.

The exhibition portion of the conference, with 8 exhibitors, facilitated networking with leading offshore commercial organizations. You can view a list of ICETECH's 2014 exhibitors.

 ICETECH is grateful for the support of our generous sponsors (linked to at left), who are crucial contributors to the success of this conference by providing funding to enhance events and facilities. Many of our sponsors have been with us for previous ICETECHs, and we thank them for their continued commitment to us. View our Sponsors Quick Guide.

Thank you for being part of ICETECH! The ICETECH Organizing Committee and support team is honored by your participation. We hope you will join us for the next ICETECH in 2016.

Best regards from the ICETECH 2014 Organizing Committee and the SNAME Arctic Section
