Make Plans to Attend Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters 2009

Registration is now open for the Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters 2009 Conference, which will address the design, performance, installation, and maintenance of breakwaters, seawalls, jetties, piers and beach control structures. Held at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre from September 16-18, 2009, the conference also will cover the latest materials on the installation of the structures necessary to extract marine and wind energy around nearshore seas and coast.

Organized by the Institution of Civil Engineers with support from more than 30 international organizations, this event is an internationally recognized forum for forthright discussion with a strong emphasis on practical application. It will be the ninth event in the successful Breakwater series.

More than 130 high-profile practitioners and academics have, subject to a rigorous process of peer review, been invited to present the most up to date case studies and research in the coastal engineering arena. All papers will be made available electronically to delegates in advance to facilitate and encourage informed discussion during the conference. The conference also will include a technical exhibition.

On Sept. 15, the University of Edinburgh will host a one-day short course on the Design of Coastal Structures, presenting a focused summary of key recent developments in this field. The conference will also accept a number of short technical notes, announcements, and position papers for less formal presentation.

Conference registrations is open, and attendees who book prior to April 30 will save 10 percent. COPRI members will benefit from discounted fees. Click here if you want to receive the latest updates about the conference.
