ICCE 2012 will be held at the International Convention Center in Santander (Cantabria), Spain from July 1st to 6th, 2012.
Santander, a modern and cosmopolitan city with a rich historical past, is protected by a natural bay and is a member of the exclusive club of the “Most beautiful Bays in the World”.

The Convention Center, recently constructed, is located in a privileged spot surrounded by golden beaches and spectacular scenery overlooking the Cantabria Sea.
The conference is being organized under the auspices of the Coastal Engineering Research Council (CERC) of Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
