ESTS 2023 invites commercial, recreational, and military ship end-users, shipbuilders, port operators, classification societies, machinery and equipment manufacturers, research institutes, universities and other organizations around the world to present their views, opinions, studies, research, designs and future advances on a range of technical topics that relate broadly to the development and implementation of electric ship platforms. Naval platforms of interest to ESTS range from ships with traditional electric power distribution through fully electrified vessels. Panel sessions and poster presentations will be held for these topics.

Specific areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the following as applied to electric ships and vessels:

Model-based Systems EngineeringShip and System Level ModelsSubsystem and Component Models
