Editorial Note

Cartagena de Indias, January 10, 2021

In this new edition of our Ship Science and Technology Journal, we want to confirm our invitation to join us in the VII International Congress of Naval Design and Engineering CIDIN 2021, the main academic-scientific space for technology transfer for the strengthening of the naval, maritime and riverine industries through the participation of actors from the scientific, productive and technological sectors that are part of the innovation system of the shipyard sector and which is scheduled to take place on September 1 and 2, as a virtual space to share knowledge among our scientific community.

The International Ship Design and Naval Engineering Congress, is a space created to promote industrial development and usually takes place within the framework of the COLOMBIAMAR biannual Fair, however, in compliance with the restrictions imposed and the recommendations due to the virus SARS-CoV-2, this time it will be developed in digital format. The thematic axes for this Congress will be: Ship design and production, Shipyard 4.0 and the Competitiveness of the shipyard industry.

For this new edition of the Journal, we present very interesting topics related to the analysis applied to COTECMAR of integrated logistics support (ILS) in the shipbuilding industry, the analysis of the use of offshore platforms such as SWATH in the Colombian Pacific Ocean, the design of a marine propeller for scale racing boats, the conceptual design of a coastal patrol boat (CPV) with helicopter operations capacity and finally, the application of Cubic B-Splines Curves for Hull Meshing.

In these times of challenges, changes, and restrictions, we want to reiterate to all our readers the best professional and personal wishes. We look forward to your participation in our VII CIDIN 2021.

There we "see each other"!
