ACOPNE to Host Special Events at 36th International Conference on Coastal Engineering
The ACOPNE plans to participate in the 36th International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) in Baltimore, MD, July 29-August 4. New 2018 ACOPNE Board Certified Diplomates will be recognized during the Opening Keynote Plenary on July 30 and ACOPNE plans to host a special private event, exclusively for ACOPNE Diplomates at ICCE.
This year’s theme, the Present State of the Art and Science of Coastal Engineering, the international conference is being hosted by ASCE’s Coastal Ocean, Ports & Rivers Institute (COPRI). This 36th conference will provide an opportunity to learn from and network with coastal engineers, researchers, academics, and scientists from around the world. The conference is being co-chaired by Robert A. Dalrymple, Ph.D., P.E., D.CE, NAE, Dist.M.ASCE.
The goal of the ICCE is to promote academic and technical exchange on coastal related studies covering a wide range of topics in including coastal waves, nearshore currents, coastal structures, sediment transport, coastal morphology, beach nourishment, natural hazards and coastal management.
The first conference was held in Long Beach, CA, USA in 1950. The original motivation of this conference can best be found in the preface of the first conference in 1950: "The Conference on Coastal Engineering was conceived originally as a local meeting of engineers and scientists interested in shoreline problems… The aim was to aid engineers by summarizing the present state of the art and science related to the design and planning of coastal works…"
ICCE Conferences is one of the leading conferences and have formed the scientific ground to exchange up-to-day knowledge and information on technical, educational, scientific and professional issues unique to coastal engineering and coastal environment problems.
