STAB'97 is a follow-up Conference which continues the trend set by previous Conferences held in Glasgow (1975), Tokyo (1982), Gdansk (1986), Naples (1990) and Melbourne, Florida (1994) Being traditionally engaged with the most contemporary and important problems of stability and safety of ships and ocean vehicles, the STAB Conference is acknowledged as one of the most prestigious international events in the field of Marine Science, recognized not only by scientists, naval architects, shipbuilders and designers but also by officers of all branches of marine administration and control organizations, regulatory agencies, ship owners, marine consultants and operators, etc. The topics of the Conference can be classified as follows: Theoretical and Expenmental Studies on Stability of Ships and Floating Marine Structures, Advances in Experimental Technique for Investigations on Stability, Stability criteria Philosophy and Research, Realistic Stability Criteria, Operational Stability - the Influence of Environment, Damage Stability, Stability of Fishing Vessels, Upgrading of Stability Qualities of Ro-Ro Ships, Stability of Nonconventional Ship Types and Special Crafts, Risk and Reliability Analysis in Stability and Capsizing, Application of Expert Systems and On-board Computers Stability Monitoring and Control. The technical papers on these topics are distributed in two volumes of the Conference Proceedings The second volume includes also State-of-the-Art Review Reports as well as written contributions subject of two Panel Discussions: Damage Stability and Safety of Ro-Ro Vessels and Capsizing in Beam Seas - Chaos and Bifurcations.
