THE CITY OF RIJEKA AND ITS SHIPBUILDING HERITAGE

to be held at the Maritime and Historical Museum of the Croatian Littoral, Rijeka, Croatia,
from 21st to 23rd April 2010

The Conference offers to world-famous experts in shipbuilding heritage to gather together and present their papers and exchange ideas on the always topical issues regarding the shipbuilding industry and its logistics, since participants coming from all over the world offer great opportunities for talks on the past, the present moment and the further development of problems, trends, technologies and legislation, as well as on the challenges that the shipbuilding industry is yet going to face.

The discussion proposed has been induced by the world economic crisis that we are facing with for months now, causing a great strain - not only on the shipbuilding industry - but will, at the same time, give world-famous experts a unique opportunity to consider new tactics and strategies to enable the shipbuilding industry to survive in such unstable circumstances.

Therefore, we are giving a warm welcome and invite experts and friends of the PRO TORPEDO association, members of any academic, industrial, museum or other international organization to take part at the 4th International Conference on Industrial Heritage thematically related to The City of Rijeka and Its Shipbuilding Heritage, Yesterday - Today - Tomorrow, and to present their conceptual, practical and theoretical research papers on the proposed subjects that cover widely the shipbuilding industry, its environment and its logistics.

All participants will have the opportunity to explore the City of Rijeka and its historical and industrial monuments that remind us of the power and of the shipbuilding entrepreneurship of the early 18th and 19th century that has slowly developed from small-size shipyards where wooden ships were built into great shipyards designed for the building of large ocean-going ships, tankers, cruisers and floating hotels, thus becoming a part of the international community.
