Engineering 2003 is the sixth international conference in this successful
series, which has previously focused on computer modelling and applications
of seas and coastal regions. This time, however, the objective of the
conference has been extended to include experimental measurements, to
highlight the importance of achieving the harmonious and joint development
of computer and experimental techniques.
The aim of the meeting is to provide a forum for the dissemination and
exchange of information on seas and coastal regions and their relationship
to environmental problems.
Coastal Engineering 2003 will address the study of seas and coastal regions
under normal and extreme conditions, emphasising the practical applications
currently being carried out around the world. Discussions will also take
place on environmental problems of coastal areas, which are frequently
densely populated or sites of major industrial development. The topic
of coastal protection and remediation work will also be addressed.
Problems such as pollution and general degradation of coastal areas have
become a major international concern and the related environmental problems
need further study to design remedial action. Moreover, the design and
construction of developments necessary for navigation such as harbours
and marinas requires an accurate knowledge of the sea climate, especially
in cases of extreme conditions.
Computer models are an efficient tool for analysing a variety of coastal
system problems in conjunction with experimental measurements.

was founded by the Phoenicians approximately 1,100 years BC, and
holds the distinction of being the oldest city in Europe. Cadiz
is surrounded by the sea on three sides and is only accessible by
the "Puerta de Tierra," a strip of land that was constructed in
1755 by Torcuato Cayon. Due to the rich history of Cadiz, the monuments,
buildings and museums are full of stories and depictions of the
past. The old central quarters is famous for its picturesque charm,
and many of the buildings reflect the city's overseas links.
The conference will be held at the University of Cadiz. The university
traditionally belonged to the University of Western Andalusia, centralized
around the Rectorado of Seville; it gained its independence in the
early 1980s. The main branch of the three-campus university system
is located in the center of the city, and due to its wonderful location
the campus retains much of the charm of this fascinating city.
