28th International Congress on Waterborne Transportation, Shipbuilding and Offshore Constructions

The Brazilian Society of Naval Engineering – SOBENA will realize the 28th International Congress on Waterborne Transportation, Shipbuilding and Offshore Constructions from October 27 to October 29, in the city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. This year, SOBENA adopted an innovative multiplatform format, with new contents and programs for parallel events.

The SOBENA congress will be held this year in parallel to the Marintec South America – Navalshore expo, joining efforts to create the largest meeting point of the shipbuilding industry that brings together national and international academics, researchers, shipowners, shipbuilders, manufacturers and suppliers in one place!

The main objective of the congress is to foster the dissemination of research and technological studies for the development of an efficient marine and offshore transportation system, including discussions on national shipbuilding.

The event will have technical sessions with presentation of technical papers, panels of debates on topics more relevant of the current scenario, with the participation of academics, researchers and experts of the sector as well as selected conferences presented by renowned technicians and national and international researchers.

The SOBENA congress is the ideal forum for researchers, engineers, managers, technicians and students from the scientific and industrial communities to:

  • Meet and present advances in technology and its scientific support;
  • Exchange ideas and experiences whilst promoting technological progress and its application in industry, and
  • Promote international cooperation in marine, ocean and offshore engineering.

Following on the tradition of excellence of previous SOBENA conferences, more than 100 technical papers are planned for presentation.

Important news

SOBENA is monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation to ensure the health and safety of our meeting and conference participants, as well as our staff.

As of this date, the conference is currently scheduled to take place. Please continue your work in the expectation that the conference will occur. All dates in the current Publications Schedule will be followed. Should it be determined that the conference may need to be postponed, cancelled, or held virtually instead of in-person for the health and safety of all, SOBENA has committed to offering the option of publishing the papers through our usual channels. Please note that the one author per paper registration requirement will still hold should the conference be held virtually, but the presentation requirement may be waived. Should this become necessary, virtual conference registration fees will be discounted from the regular conference fee. If postponed, SOBENA will work with the conference organizing committee to determine whether the papers will be published at the time of the scheduled conference or delayed until the rescheduled one.

If there are any changes to these plans, we will provide updates on this website. We understand that you will have questions, so please check back periodically. Thank you.


Available Soon.
