Innov'sail 2017 - Call for papers

Postby AYRS_Office » Thu Nov 17, 2016 10:40 am

Organized by the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly, and the Naval Academy Research Institute, INNOV’SAIL will provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest scientific and technologic research and its application in the complex field of high performance yachts and competitive sailing. INNOV’SAIL 2017 will provide an opportunity for scientists, architects, engineers, sailors, sail makers, boat and rig builders and others involved in this fascinating and challenging field to come together to share skills and know-how. An exciting social program will be announced later.

The conference venue is in the Cité de la Voile Eric Tabarly, a purpose-built marine centre and museum dedicated to the adventure of modern sailing. The Cité is in the heart of the Yacht Racing Centre in the beautiful bay of Lorient, home of many high technology yachting industries and racing teams, such as Groupama Team France (the French Challenger for the America’s Cup), IMOCA 60’ (Vendee Globe) and maxi multihulls (round the world record).

The conference will provide an international forum for the presentation and discussion of the latest scientific and technological research and its application in the complex field of high performance yachts and competitive sailing. INNOV’SAIL 2017 will offer a unique opportunity to scientists, naval architects, engineers, sailors, sail makers, boat and rig builders and others involved in this fascinating and challenging field to come together to share skills and know-how. An exciting social program will be announced later.

Papers are invited on the following topics to be covered by the conference (list not restrictive) :

Aerodynamics
Design of sails, masts, rigging
Hydrodynamics
Design of hulls, appendages, foils
Structural analysis and materials
Fluid structure interaction
Computational methods and model validation
New experimental results and techniques
Towing tank, wind tunnel and full scale measurements
Performance enhancement in general

Follow-up special issue in the high-impact journal Ocean Engineering, edited by Elsevier.

A selection of high scientific quality contributions will be offered the opportunity to submit a paper for a special issue on yacht engineering in the renowned peer-reviewed scientific journal Ocean Engineering, to be edited after the conference. The special issue edited after the previous conference INNOV’SAIL 2013 can be found under the reference Ocean Engineering, Vol. 90, 1 November 2014, ISSN 0029-8018.
