COPRI logoCreated in 2000, the Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute (COPRI) is a semi-autonomous institute of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the country's oldest national engineering society. COPRI's services are designed to complement ASCE's traditional civil engineering base, and attract non-engineering allied professionals who seek to enhance their professional and technical development.

COPRI serves its membership and society by uniting the disciplines working to sustainably develop, protect and restore coasts, oceans, ports, waterways, rivers and wetlands; integrating the key stakeholders into decision-making processes; advancing technological state of art and practice; and influencing public policy.


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 biannually since. Although the conferences began with a national focus, they quickly became international in scope.
