Seminar Summary

The joint DFI-COPRI New York City Ports and Marine Engineering online seminar is being held April 14-15, 2021. Each day includes 4 hours of online presentations and discussion on policy, innovations and challenges in design and construction of port and coastal projects. Representatives from government organizations, engineering companies and contractors will deliver presentations on project planning, codes, environmental issues, foundation techniques and more.

This third jointly organized seminar in the series is intended to bridge a technical connection between DFI and COPRI to share and leverage resources related to the understanding, design and construction of ports.

COPRI (The Coasts, Oceans, Ports, and Rivers Institute) is a semi-autonomous institute of the ASCE (American Society of Civil Engineers). COPRI serves as a multidisciplinary and international leader in improving knowledge, education, development and the practice of civil engineering and other disciplines in the sustainable management of coastal, ocean, port, waterways, riverine and wetlands resources for the benefit of society.

DFI’s Marine Foundations Committee comprises industry-wide professionals who promote and support the design, construction and equipment supply for marine foundation projects such as wharfs, bridges, locks, utility line towers, sewer outfalls, tunnels and other related structures.

Who Should Attend?

DFI-COPRI welcomes engineers, contractors, material suppliers, academia, professors, and students to learn from and engage with our attendees and presenters.
