Program & Registration
General Instructions

All participants are supposed to deliver computed results for one or more of the test cases. These results will be compiled by the organizers and presented in a common format for easy comparison. The organizers will also make an assessment of the computations for each hull and present that at the workshop for general discussion. No papers will be presented at the workshop, but they will be included in the proceedings. At the workshop methods and computations will be presented in the form of posters. All test cases are described extensively in the menu “instructions to participants”. Read more about the instructions for all cases in the menus.
Submitters that want to use existing PMM model tests (for rexample PMM tests or CMT tests) to make submissions, can go to the FTP section on this website. There they can download a set of captive model tests or any other set of PMM test results that they may need to make a submission.

The workshop is open for all groups interested in carrying making manoeuvring predictions for one or more of the hulls specified. Submitters are required to attend the workshop and represent their submissions. Interested participants are encouraged to fill out the Interested Persons form accessed on the website’s start page. This form needs to be filled out to get access to the captive data sets. Final registration for the workshop must be done on the website.

Coordinate systems
The coordinate system and sign convention to be used throughout the workshop is the one normally used for manoeuvring as described in ITTC "Symbols and Terminology List", Version 2002, i.e. a right-handed, horizontal, body-fixed coordinate system with x positive forward of midships, y positive starboard of centre line and z positive down from waterline. More information about the coordinate system is found in the instruction for every case.
Model test data for the workshop can be downloaded from the KRISO FTP-server.
