The ESTS 2023 Technical Program Committee solicits tutorial presentation submissions 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. 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
Digital Twin DevelopmentModeling Tool DevelopmentWide Bandgap Device Applications
Electric Propulsion and GenerationPower Conversion TopologiesControl Architectures and Methods
Energy Storage SystemsFuel cells and IntegrationPulsating Loads and System Impact
Superconducting Devices & SystemsDielectric ConsiderationsWireless Charging at MW Scale
Electromagnetic InterferenceElectromagnetic CompatibilityCharging and Charging Infrastructures
Common-mode BehaviorDC Power DistributionMedium Freq. AC Power Distribution
Cabling ConsiderationsProtection for AC and DC SystemsAdvanced Magnetics
Autonomous Vessel DesignCyber-Physical System ConsiderationsRobust Communications Systems
Cold-Ironing and Shore PowerBattery-Electric Ship ImplementationsDecarbonization & Carbon Capture
Emission Control SystemsCooling Systems & Thermal SolutionsRenewable Generation Sources

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 tutorials on these subjects.

Tutorial Format

The technical committee seeks one- or two-hour tutorial proposals, which should provide instructional materials on relevant topics within the scope of the above major technical areas. There is no cost to attend the tutorial sessions and attendance is open to the public. Accepted tutorials may be recorded and posted on the ESTS website, and tutorial materials may appear on IEEE Xplore.

Public Disclosure

All tutorial materials contributed by authors must be approved for public disclosure prior to submission or presentation. Please note that the technical committee cannot accept restricted distribution submissions for consideration. 

Submission of Tutorial Proposals

Proposals should concisely describe the relevance of the tutorial to electric ship technologies and contain the following sections: Title, Outline, Speaker(s) and the topics they will cover, and Brief CVs (less than 300 words per speaker).

The instructor(s) should indicate any presentation requirements (e.g. multimedia) and any plans to provide case studies, practical examples, or hands-on activities. Submitted tutorial proposals should not exceed four pages and should be sent to the Tutorials Chair in a single PDF file at opila@usna.edu by the deadline below. Organizational approvals for any material being presented must be completed by the final tutorial material deadline below. If you have any questions, please contact the Tutorials Chair.
