Mangalore to Host ICWRCOE Conference

The International Conference on Water Resources, Coastal and Ocean Engineering (ICWRCOE 2015) will take place from March 12-14, 2015, in Surathkal, Mangalore, India.

This conference will provide a platform for researchers, engineers, scientists and academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the globe to present their research results and developmental activities in the areas of water resources, coastal and ocean engineering.

The technical program of the conference will consist of keynote addresses and technical paper presentations.
