Ports '19 Pennsylvania

Connect. Innovate. Transform.

Continuing a long tradition of excellence, PORTS ® ‘19: “Connect. Innovate. Transform.” will be the fifteenth in a series of international port and harbor development specialty conferences held on a triennial basis since 1977.

The PORTS Conference series is internationally recognized as an outstanding opportunity to network with hundreds of professionals who share similar challenges and concerns. 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.

This immensely successful series of conferences has consistently drawn an international audience of port, harbor, waterway, and marine professionals who come to share their knowledge and learn from the experiences of others. The papers and presentations promise to cover a broad spectrum of topics dealing with a multitude of issues facing the ports and harbors community.

Those who attend the conference will leave with a greater understanding of the challenges faced by their peers, and gain valuable insight into how those challenges were overcome.

Due to the overwhelming response to past calls for papers and the success of the PORTS conference series, PORTS ’19 will maintain an expanded and diverse technical program. This expanded program provides additional opportunities to present ideas and experiences—including entire sessions devoted to panel/round-table discussions of timely topics and vendor presentations of materials, processes, and equipment relevant to the maritime development community.
