This is a nice compilation of the proceedings of the papers that have been presented in the course of the Third ISSW and summary of discussions. One of the main objectives of that event was to promote the maximum possible exchange of technical information directly related to the research and developments in ship stability as well as operational safety. This may be achieved through the in-depth discussions by the world respected experts. The first of the papers provides a sort of intro to the numerical modeling of the vessel motions and usage of such models in the analysis of the ship's intact stability. The author of the article has presented a good discussion of various important and actual aspects that shall form a part of the whole process of modeling, namely the ship system, environment, excitation and response, supplemented with a very brief overview of the techniques used for modeling of the hydrodynamic forces. The main emphasis has been put on quality assurance and validation of various numerical modeling techniques. Among the topics that have been covered during that workshop there were application of various non-linear systems dynamics to vessel stability, numerical/physical modeling of intact/damage stability, some special ship stability problems etc.
