PORTS 2010: “Building on the Past, Respecting the Future” will be the twelfth in a series of international port and harbor development specialty conferences held by ASCE on a tri-annual basis since 1977.
Developers of ports and harbors strive to balance the needs of people making a living from port activity with people living in and near the port community. PORTS 2010 will offer an unparalleled opportunity to both present the best results of these efforts, and to learn from the practical experience of our professional peers. The papers and technical sessions for the conference are expected to present clear and timely examples of Best Practices in the balanced and sustainable planning, design, construction, maintenance, and operation of port and harbor facilities worldwide. This wealth of information and experience will be shared with a diverse range of professionals responsible for delivering ports and harbors to their communities across the maritime world. The structure of PORTS 2010 will maximize our opportunities for sharing new ideas, discussing the lessons learned from recent projects, and staying in touch with the state of our craft.
Following the long tradition of the PORTS Conferences, we are anticipating lively and stimulating discussions of theory, practices, methods, technologies, and standards, as applied in current practical applications. Conference participants will obtain a new and broader appreciation of recent developments in port engineering worldwide, and will have numerous opportunities to cultivate new connections with peers with similar interests, facing similar challenging port applications.
Please join us in Jacksonville, Florida on April 25 to 28, 2010. Share your valuable experience with the global ports and harbors development community by submitting an abstract for consideration. The COPRI Ports and Harbors Committee invites you to become part of the Ports Conference tradition of advancing the art and science of port engineering, and improving our maritime world.
