ICCE 2022 logo

The International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE) is the premier coastal engineering conference held biennially under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council of COPRI. The Local Organizing Committee is responsible for conference planning and organization.

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 (CERC).

The first ICCE was held in Long Beach, CA in 1950, and has been held biennially since. Although the conferences began with a national focus, they quickly became international in scope.
