In the last Session of the Symposium, the theme was the SNAME Western Section Paper contest. We firstly saw a recorded presentation of a previous winner of the contest, Mr Jaime Perez-Martinez, who unfortunately could not attend the event in person. We then proceeded to last year’s winner, Mr Luis Gonzalez-Blasco from the University of Madrid, who presented to us his project regarding the engine room of a frigate. Lastly, Mr Keith Lilley awarded the medals and other important certificates to the winners, while Ms Viviana Carta informed us about the upcoming paper contest of the SNAME WES 2023.
The Symposium was broadcasted live through Zoom, for everyone who was interested in attending. Konstantinos Veronis was online throughout the presentations, replying to questions in the chat.
Dr. Iraklis Lazakis of the University of Strathclyde made some closing remarks, and afterwards we had some time to network and take some pictures of the event.
