    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.

    The first ICCE was held in Long Beach, CA in 1950. Although the conferences began with a national focus, they quickly became international in scope. ICCE has been held biannually since 1950, and is recognized as the principal conference on coastal engineering in the world.
