Since their inception in Trondheim, Norway, in 1991 the bi-annual FAST conferences have been the world's leading technical conferences addressing fast sea transportation issues.

FAST 2015, the 13th International Conference on Fast Sea Transportation, will be held at FHI 360 Conference Center in Du Point Circle, Washington DC, USA the nation’s capital.  The event will be on September 1-4, 2015.

The aim of the Conference is promoting the world-wide cooperation among scientists, engineers and operators who are concerned with all the aspects of the high-speed maritime industry.

The FAST Conference program for 2015 will focus on high-quality papers and invited Keynote Lecturers. A thorough review process, of both abstracts and full manuscripts, will be used to select papers whose originality, relevance, timeliness, and significance meet the standards FAST attendees have come to expect. The conference will be conducted in the English language.
