The 2020 edition for the CRS AGM was held in a webinar format: the first webinar was devoted to proposals for new projects and the second webinar was devoted to the status updates of the working groups. To start with the latter: Substantial progress was made over a broad range of research topics. Due to the COVID-19 restrictions, researchers had to meet in a sequence of video meetings, where they presented and discussed their results. Especially worth mentioning are the research activities in the Data Driven working group, where users cooperate in a cloud environment, sharing data and analysis tools.
In the ‘proposals webinar’, eight high quality proposals for new projects were presented. The members selected three proposals by voting:
- SEACAL: Seakeeping Calculation at Forward Speed
- ORCA: Ongoing Research in Composite Applications
- EVap: Extreme Value Prediction
These projects will start in 2021 and will run for three years.
