The conference seeks to provide a platform for selected high quality papers, from where the majority will be promoted to a special issue of the Ships and Offshore Structures journal (SAOS). The promotion process will be an essential part of ICSOS and allows for a time efficient inclusion of Your contribution into SAOS.​</p>​<span style="background-color:initial">To ensure that only high quality papers will be presented at the conference, ICSOS is very pleased to be backed-up by an outstanding</span><span style="background-color:initial"> </span><a href="http://www.icsos.info/committees/">international scientific committee</a><span style="background-color:initial">.
