Letter from the Chair
Over the past 40 years, we have seen OMAE grow and strengthen, bringing people together from industry, government, and academia to discuss and share achievements. For OMAE 2022 we sincerely hope to find us back together in an in-person conference. Knowing the uncertainty involved in today's travel possibilities, we will keep the option of a virtual event in sight. In any case, we will continue bringing people together for fruitful discussions and interactions. I am looking forward meeting our community member in a successful conference.
In 2012 I presented my first paper at the 31st OMAE, held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I enjoyed the conference and family atmosphere so much, that I remained involved ever since. I joined the Polar and Arctic Sciences and Technology and the Structures, Safety and Reliability Symposium as a session organizer and in 2012 I joined the Executive Committee of the OOAE Division. Being part of the OMAE community has been very enjoyable part of my development, both on a scientific and personal level. This year I had the great opportunity to serve as the Division Chair working together with the dedicated volunteers of the Executive and Extended Executive Committees. At the end of the conference, I will pass the Chair responsibility to my good friend and current Vice-Chair Lance Manuel.
After many years of being part of the OOAE Division, it is now my privilege to welcome you to OMAE 2022 on behalf of our Division. I would like to extent my sincere appreciation to the Organizing Committee, Technical Program Chair, Symposia Coordinators, Topic and Session Organizers, and reviewers that have spent countless hours to ensure the success of this exceptional conference. None of these would have been possible without the support of the ASME and Sea to Sky staff. On behalf of our Division, I would like to welcome the students, industry professionals, government, and academia who have a passion for ocean, offshore, and arctic engineering and wish you a successful conference.
