37th International Conference on Coastal Engineering

The goal of the ICCE is to promote academic and technical exchange on coastal related studies covering a wide range of topics including coastal waves, nearshore currents, coastal structures, sediment transport, coastal morphology, beach nourishment, natural hazards and coastal management.

About ICCE 2022

The International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) is the premier coastal engineering conference held biennially under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council of COPRI. The Local Organising Committee is responsible for conference planning and organisation.

Created in 2000, the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute (COPRI) is a semi-autonomous institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the country’s oldest national engineering society. COPRI’s services are designed to complement ASCE’s traditional civil engineering base, and attract non-engineering allied professionals who seek to enhance their professional and technical development.

COPRI serves its membership and society by uniting the disciplines working to sustainably develop, protect and restore coasts, oceans, ports, waterways, rivers and wetlands; integrating the key stakeholders into decision-making processes; advancing technological state of art and practice; and influencing public policy.

History of CERC and ICCE

The Council on Wave Research was established by Professor Boris Bakhmeteff in June 1950 under the Engineering Foundation. In 1963 the Council was transferred from the Foundation to ASCE and renamed the Coastal Engineering Research Council (CERC).

The first ICCE was held in Long Beach, CA in 1950, and has been held biennially since. Although the conferences began with a national focus, they quickly became international in scope.
