Breakwaters 2021

ICE's prestigious Breakwaters returns in September 2021.

Coasts, Marine Structures & Breakwaters 2021

Papers are now being requested for next year’s ‘Breakwaters’ conference.

The deadline for abstracts is 30th October 2020.

Papers are now being requested for next year’s ‘Breakwaters’ conference – ‘Coasts, Marine Structures and Breakwaters: Resilience and Adaptability in a Changing Climate’.

The latest in the quadrennial Breakwaters conference series will be held in Portsmouth, UK, between 13 and 16 September 2021, with abstracts now being requested for consideration.

As with previous iterations of Breakwaters, the 2021 event will include a site visit on Thursday 16 September, immediately after the main 3 day conference.  Details of this will be finalised shortly but please do make a note in your diary! 

The 2021 edition will cover the latest developments across maritime engineering topics from coasts to ports and waterfronts to breakwaters, while focusing on the full spectrum of research and study, design, construction and operations.

Given the heightened attention on the ‘climate emergency’, next year’s conference will place a big focus on how resilience and adaptability is being addressed by the maritime sector.

The two previous conferences both attracted over 400 delegates from more than 40 nations and showcased over 100 papers, while also including ‘Spotlight on Innovation’ presentations.
