Abstract : This biennial symposium promotes the technical exchange of naval research developments of common interest to all the countries of the world. The form encourages both formal and informal discussion of the presented papers, and the occasion provides an opportunity for direct communication between international peers. More than 170 participants from 23 countries attended the symposium. The attendees represented a mixture of experience and expertise, as some attendees were newly graduated students and others were of established international repute. Seventy- two papers were presented in thirteen topical areas covered by the symposium, including wave-induced ship motions and loads, viscous ship hydrodynamics, wake dynamics, wave hydrodynamics, cavitation and bubbly flows, propulsion hydrodynamics/hydro- acoustics, water entry, bluff body hydrodynamics, shallow water hydrodynamics, fluid dynamics in the naval context, CFD validation, frontier experimental techniques, and hydrodynamics in ship design. These topical areas were chosen for this particular meeting because of the recent advances made in them. Examples of the significant advances presented in the papers are the high-resolution numerical solution of bow waves for slender hull forms showing the origin of bow waves in the bow splash, the influence of cavitation nuclei on the cavitation bucket for full-scale predictions, the coupling of hydrodynamic impact and elastic response during slamming, and the development of a two-fluid turbulent flow computational method for surface ships.
