5th Indian National Conference on Harbour and Ocean Engineering (INCHOE 2014)

5th Indian National Conference on Harbour and Ocean Engineering (INCHOE 2014)

INCHOE 2014-5 – 7 February 2014 CSIR-NIO Goa, India.

INCHOE 2014Indian National Conference on Harbour and Ocean Engineering is going to conduct its 5th national conference at CSIR – National Institute of Oceanography (NIO).

National Institute of Oceanography (NIO), Goa will host the INCHOE 2014 in its premises.

The Local Organising Committee (LOC) of the Fifth Indian National Conference on Harbour and Ocean Engineering (INCHOE2014) warmly invites you to attend INCHOE2014 to be held during 5-7 February 2014, back in Goa after almost 10 years.

The objective of the INCHOE series is to bring together the research of Academia, Industry, Scientists and the user community of harbour and ocean engineering. Of late the subject of coastal engineering has gained importance due to impact of port & harbour structures.

The first INCHOE was organised by Central Water and Power Research Station-Pune, in 1994. Centre for Earth Science Studies-Thiruvananthapuram organised the second INCHOE in 1997; Third INCHOE was organised by us at National Institute of Oceanography-Goa in 2004 and the fourth INCHOE was organised by National Institute of Technology Karnataka-Surathkal in 2007.

INCHOE2014 is being organised by the CSIR-National Institute of Oceanography (CSIR-NIO), a constituent laboratory of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (CSIR). CSIR-NIO with its headquarters at Dona Paula, Goa has three regional centres at Mumbai, Kochi and Visakhapatnam. CSIR-NIO is one of the premier oceanographic institutes in the world with research being pursued in every aspect of the ocean including coastal regions.

!!For the first time in INCHOE history, select papers would be published in SCI journals. INCHOE2014 is a great opportunity to present your research work!! 

Proceedings of the Fifth Indian National Conference on Harbour and Ocean Engineering (INCHOE2014) will be published digitally. A book of abstracts will be provided to the registered delegates at the beginning of the conference. Select papers from the INCHOE2014 will be further processed for publication in Journal of Coastal ResearchInternational Journal of Climate and Ocean ResearchInternational Journal of Earth Sciences and Engineering and Indian Journal of Geo-Marine Sciences. All the abstracts and full length manuscripts will be peer-reviewed.


Extended abstracts of original work of the authors including measurement, analysis, theoretical, physical modelling and validated numerical modelling, for the following topics are invited. Papers presenting practical and real life scenarios including case studies are encouraged. Any topics not listed below but of relevance to the objectives of INCHOE2014 would also be considered.
