Transactions of Conferences
Publishing the NDS conference papers within Transactions was one of the main objectives set up by the Naval Dockyards Society in 1997, to publish original NDS research and enable members unable to attend the conferences to benefit from the published papers. While each conference had a theme and would ideally have been published as a discrete volume, practicalities determined that some issues are composite volumes. As NDS Transactions may include any other Society proceedings, some volumes include other research material which became available in the year of publication or was relevant to the theme.
