Welcome letter from the OMAE 2006 Conference Chair


On behalf of the OMAE 2006 Organizing Committee, it is a pleasure to invite you to Hamburg, Germany for the 25th Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering Conference (OMAE 2006). This year we celebrate 25 years of OMAE conferences — 25 years of sharing information, research and networking.


OMAE 2006 will showcase the exciting and challenging developments occurring in offshore and arctic engineering today. The education program is very strong with more than 500 technical paper submissions organized into 12 symposia. Program highlights include Offshore Wind Energy, LNG, a special Douglas Faulkner Symposium on Reliability and Ultimate Strength of Marine Structures, and a very timely workshop on The Pendulous Installation Method for Deployment of Heavy Subsea Hardware in Ultra Deepwater. Coupled with our normal Symposia topics, I believe the OMAE 2006 program will be one of the best ever.


During your visit I hope you take the time to visit Hamburg’s many attractions. With 31 theatres, 6 music halls, 10 cabarets, 50 state and private museums, the State Opera, and music clubs on the Reeperbahn, Hamburg has a lot to see and offer! Our Gala Dinner will be onboard a charter yacht cruising through Hamburg harbour’s many channels and basins. And following the conference there’s an optional day trip to Berlin, Germany’s capital city.


I look forward to welcoming you all to Hamburg and the 25th OMAE Conference. See you in Hamburg; until then, my best personal regards,


Walter Kuehnlein

Welcome letter from GMT Chairman of the Board


It is with great pleasure that, on behalf of the German Association for Marine Technology (GMT), I invite you to attend the 25th Offshore Mechanics and Arctic Engineering Conference in Hamburg, Germany. The conference is sponsored by the ASME Ocean, Offshore and Arctic Engineering Division (OOAE), the International Petroleum Technology Institute, and is being hosted by the German Association for Marine Technology.


OMAE 2006 marks the 25th anniversary of the conference and the first conference ever in Germany. Festivities marking this milestone will occur throughout the conference. Conference Chair, Dr. Walter Kuehnlein, and Technical Program Chair, Dan Valentine, have put together a hard working and well-connected group of industry professionals to organize the conference. With more than 500 expected technical papers and 12 planned symposia and special workshops, OMAE 2006 is expected to be one of the best OMAE conferences ever.


Thank you to the technical program and conference organizing committees for their hard work and dedication in producing what promises to be an outstanding OMAE 2006.


I am looking forward seeing you all in Hamburg.
