Call for Special Sessions | 特殊场次征稿


ICCOE 2023 will provide a forum for academics, university researchers and industry experts in Coastal and Ocean Engineering to share ideas and experiences, and discuss innovations. The proposals for special session within the technical scope of the conference are greatly encouraged. It ensurely makes it a very good form to enhance the academic communication.

All the papers in the special sessions will be evaluated and peer-reviewed as per the same criteria of the regular papers. The Special Session organizers will arrange the reviewing of the papers submitted to their sessions in collaboration with the conference’s Technical Chair and Special Session Chair. Accepted and registered session papers will be included in conference proceedings and submit to Ei Compendex, Scopus for indexing. You can also  submit abstract if you prefer presentation only without publication.

The Special session organizers will receive ONE free registration for every 6 papers accepted and registered in the conference under their special session. The Organizing Committee invites researchers and academics to submit their proposals to organize special sessions.

Special Session 1 Information

Tentative Title: “Advances and trends in sustainable coastal zone management and research”

Short Description of the Proposed Topic

Coasts are being heavily exploited by humans. Understanding coastal processes is an essential component that allows us to manage the coasts sustainably. Recent research has shown that new developments and trends have changed. Hard engineering approach has become greener. More effective coastal management schemes have been proposed. New and advanced coastal survey equipments have been utilized in coastal surveys. Sophisticated remote sensing techniques have been applied. This special session hopes to promote this topic and exchange recent knowledge.

Novelty and Motivation

The title of the ICCOE is “engineering”. Many participants who are experts in coastal research may not want to attend. The special session is a mixture of coastal engineering, coastal research, and coastal management. It can broaden the scope of the conference.

Organizer: Cherdvong Saengsupavanich | Faculty of International Maritime Studies, Kasetsart University, Thailand

Cherdvong Saengsupavanich is an Associated Professor at the Faculty of International Maritime Studies, Kasetsart University, Sri Racha campus. His specialization is coastal protection and management. He has undertaken more than 120 projects on coastal protection especially designs of breakwaters and revetments, port developments, and coastal environmental impact assessment. His expertise also includes integrated coastal management and applications of coastal numerical simulation. In 2020, he completed authoring the first Thai textbook on coastal engineering and its application, that was formally published by The Engineering Institute of Thailand under H.M. The King’s Patronage, with an objective to be the first and only handbook for Thai coastal engineers. He is the founding and the Editor-in-Chief of a journal named Maritime Technology and Research, one of the top Thai’s journals in the field of maritime research
