The Conference was initiated at Institut Teknologi Sepuluh Nopember (ITS, Surabaya) in 2010 as part of 50 years anniversary of ITS and higher education in naval architecture in Indonesia, and 150 years of RINA. The second Conference was conducted at Pattimura University (Ambon) in 2012, the third Conference was held at Hasanuddin University (Makassar) in 2014, the fourth Conference was held back at ITS (Surabaya) in 2015 as special conference in commemoration to the 10 years anniversary of RINA Indonesia.
