Following the success of the first Vietnam Symposium on Advances in Offshore Engineering (VSOE2018), we are pleased to announce that the second Symposium, VSOE2021, will be held in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, on 22-24 April 2021. The second VSOE event is being organised by the Association of Vietnamese Scientists and Experts (AVSE Global) in collaboration with Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT) and the Vietnam Administration of Seas and Islands (VASI).

Focusing on the theme of "Sustainable Energy and Marine Planning", VSOE2021 aims to enhance the sustainable use of our marine resources while ensuring the health of the ecosystem as well as the effective management of marine activities including energy production and infrastructures.

VSOE2021 continues providing a platform for all participants to exchange knowledge and experience gained recently in offshore engineering, technology innovations, and marine spatial plan to achieve the goal of economic, reliable and sustainable solutions for offshore energy development, and ecosystem-based management of the marine environment.

VSOE2021 intends to bring together researchers, practitioners, policymakers, and entrepreneurs to discuss and promote technology and policy changes toward renewable energy, as well as to generate business opportunities in offshore energy, both domestically in Vietnam and globally.

The Symposium program will include paper presentations, posters and project demonstrations, along with prominent keynote speakers, researchers, academics and technologists from leading universities, research firms, policymakers, entrepreneurs and practitioners.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by experts in the field based on the criteria of originality, significance, quality and clarity. The proceedings of the Symposium will be published by Springer, indexed by Scopus and EI Compendex database. The VSOE2018 proceedings are available here.
