The seventh edition of the Rostock Large Engine Conference, the international symposium for large ship engines, will be held on 15 and 16 September 2022 in the German city of Rostock. The announcement came some months after the end of the 6th edition of the conference, which took place at the beginning of September 2020. It was indeed one of the few physical events (even though with a field of participants limited to 100 people) made possible during the ‘pandemic year’, as it was held in a phase of fewer Coronavirus cases in Germany as well as in Europe.
The sixth Rostock Large Engine Conference: all the safety protocols
In addition, the entire conference was streamed with live image and sound for over 50 online guests. «A large part of the success of the conference was due to the speakers», that’s what we read from the official press release, «who gave their presentations redundantly in a pre-recorded version to safeguard against short-term travel restrictions. For four international contributions, this variant of the presentation was used, whereby the respective speaker was switched live into the lecture hall for the subsequent discussion round».
