About The Vice Admiral E. L. Cochrane Award

The Vice Admiral E.L. Cochrane Award is presented to the author of Best Peer-Reviewed Paper Published by SNAME from Conferences, Symposia, “Featured Papers”, Non Ship Production Papers of the Journal of Ship Production and Design, and Non Archival Papers Presented at the Annual Meeting.

It was instituted by the Executive Committee in 1961 to succeed The President’s Award, which was first presented in 1946. Note that ship production papers are considered for the Elmer L. Hann Award and Archival Papers are considered for the American Bureau of Shipping - Captain Joseph H. Linnard Prize. The title of the award is "The Vice Admiral E. L. Cochrane Award." The award is a medallion suitably inscribed. Eligibility for the award need not be limited to membership in SNAME. In the case of co-authors, each receives an award.

The “Featured Papers” Committee will recommend to the Awards Committee one Cochrane Award nominee, and two Honorable Mention nominees for the Cochrane Award based on their evaluation of significance of the paper’s subject, originality and technical quality. The nomination will require a majority vote of the Awards Committee. Announcement and notification of the award will be made upon approval by the Awards Committee. The award will be presented with suitable ceremonies at such time as the President of SNAME may arrange. The award may be bestowed annually.
