The 11th Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters conference 5-7 September

The Institution of Civil Engineers has announced the 11th Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters Conference, to be held 5 - 7 September in Liverpool.

Since 1982, authors and delegates at this event have unveiled innovative technologies, and made formal recommendations that have translated into guidance documents and manuals defining industry standard practice for 30 years.

Some of the highlights of this year’s conference will include the new Eurotop neural network tool,the brand new Innovation Spotlight which will showcase emerging research, new coastal revetment guidance and in-depths looks at iconic structures in Britain and abroad. Michail Mavrommatis, ICE’s Project Manager for the event said “The conference is unique in presenting only the most forward-thinking industry papers, extensively peer reviewed by a highly experienced organising committee. It will once again bring together industry representatives from the UK and abroad, with participation from clients, contractors and consultants, complemented with breakthrough researchers from top universities and specialist facilities.”

“It has worked for more than thirty years to shape marine engineering sharing innovative technologies and new methodologies while addressing climate change adaptation, heavily influencing how schemes are planned, tested and developed.”

“ICE’s Breakwaters conference has an unrivalled pedigree and Boskalis Westminster isproud to have a long association with it. As an organisation we believe it is vital to be part of events like this that make a global and lasting impact on best practice, advancing and improving the profession and our impact on society” says Scott Cruttenden, Business Development Manager, Boskalis Westminster
