2nd International Conference MARITIME ENGINEERING AND PORTS 2000 will be take place in Barcelona( Spain) from 27 to 29 September 2000. The objectives of this Conference are to discuss the management, operation, design and building of Maritime Works and Ports, which are now experiencing rapid changes. It is essential for the industry that new technologies are incorporated into a better design of these systems to remain competitive. Ports are currently transforming from a more traditional role to one in which both leisure and commerce are accommodated. The transportation of goods through containerisation and the balance between marina developments and commercial operations are typical issues which need to be addressed. The Conference will provide a forum for discussion and interchange of information between managers, operators, designers, and the scientific and academic communities. Emphasis will be given to new areas of research and advanced topics.
