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.
The World Association for Waterborne Transport Infrastructure
is a forum for professional organizations to share developments and exchange
knowledge of worldwide trends and challenges in port and waterway development
and management. Founded in 1885, PIANC originally stood for the Permanent
International Association of Navigation Congresses, but changed its name to the
current in 2009.
COPRI and PIANC work together to bring the PORTS conference series to you.
