The Local Organizing Committee of the ICCE2014 together with the Korean Society of Coastal and Ocean Engineers welcome you to the 34th International Conference on Coastal Engineering ICCE2014 in Seoul, Korea. This prestigious conference series is organized under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council (CERC) of Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE). It is a great pleasure for the Local Organizing Committee to organize the 2014 event in Seoul, the first ICCE in Korea.

Korea, located at a major crossroad of Northeast Asia and surrounded by seas on all three sides, is closely related to coastal and ocean industry and has tried to develop coastal and ocean engineering. Korea is famous for not only its international and technical development but also its 5,000 years of history. Seoul, the capital of Korea for more than 600 years since the Joseon Dynasty, is a modern and cosmopolitan city where tradition and innovation is well blended. Lots of interesting places such as palaces, museums, theaters, and art centers are located in Seoul. It has also hosted the Olympic Games in 1988, the World Cup Games in 2002, and the G20 Summit in 2010. Other major cities are within easy reach by train, bus, and air because Korea is a small country.

We wish you a pleasant and interesting conference and an enjoyable and memorable stay in Seoul and Korea.
