International Conference on Coastal Zone Management

Coastal Zone Management - 2016 welcomes attendees, presenters, and exhibitors from all over the world to Osaka, Japan. We are delighted to invite you all to attend and register for the “International Conference on Coastal Zone Management” which is going to be held during May 16-18, 2016 in Osaka, Japan with the theme “Multi Disciplinary approach in achieving equitable development for Coastal Zones”.


The scope of Coastal Zone Management is to promote the advancements in the field of community based management of coastal resources, large-scale infrastructure development (ports, industrial and residential parks, etc.), pollution and erosion control, aquaculture, tourism and recreation, oil spill contingency planning, and navigational risk assessment.etc., at an international level and also to disseminate the excellence in research to the global community. Coastal zones include the entire continental shelf and occupy about 18% of the surface of the globe, supplying about 90% of global fish catch and accounts for some 25% of global primary productivity while at the same time being some of the most endangered regions on the planet. This growth, which has reached its peak in recent decades, exerts pressures on the environmental and cultural resources of coastal areas, and negatively affects the social, economic and cultural patterns.


We look forward to an exciting scientific event in the Wonderful city of Osaka, Japan.



To ensure that structures have minimal impact on the coastal environment and are kept in good condition, Planning Design & Construction of Ports & Marinas is essential. Coastal and Maritime Engineering involves Port Navigation Systems, Dredging, Mining & Monitoring, Deep Water Terminals, Designing and Planning Coastal Infrastructure, Desalination & Water Treatment Technologies. Remote Sensing & GIS and Maritime Meteorology involves with planning and strategy of the structures. Maritime archaeology deals with the submerged or damaged structures and monuments along the coastal regions.



Coastal structures are an important component in any coastal protection scheme. They directly control wave and storm surge action or to stabilize a beach which provides protection to the coast, majorly comprises Structural and Soft Engineering Techniques. Worldwide investigations like Designing Artificial Reefs will stabilise the Biodiversity. Sloping dykes in the forms of designing gentle slopes type coastal dykes to minimise environmental damage when constructing and maintaining buildings and other public amenities in coastal areas.



Recreation in terms of developing Tourism & Infrastructure and aquaculture which improves the Nation’s Economy by planning and beach design is of prime importance. Petroleum Industry is majorly engaged with coastal zones. Coral reef resources are also another focused sector in outcome of natural resources. While engaging in the development of these areas, the risk reduction and land use planning have to be considered in terms of natural life forms and investigation of coastal environmental impact simultaneously predicting Environmental variations.



Coastal zones and the infrastructure are the areas directly impacted by Tsunamis and the climatic change. There should be a Hazard assessment planning and information on Tsunamis, storm surges like cyclones, Hurricanes and typhoons. Geography and remote sensing plays a key role in analysing the impact and recovery from coastal revetment on tsunami run-up, Ecological restoration and simulation by reproducing storm surges.



Coastal areas include continental shelf, slope and estuaries and their processes. Study on wave and their hydrodynamic modelling helps in sedimentation and navigational process of comprehensive sediment management. It involves Coastal oceanography and lagoons in Investigating seashore deposits, shoreline changes. Conservation in marine eco systems, coastal morphology helps in protecting the marine habitats and future survival.



Planning and management for coastal zones involves defences, socio-environmental issues, along neighbouring coastal nations. There should be controlled and strict strategy in sustainable use of resources, mangrove forest management, identification of Ecologically Critical Areas, Energy recovery divisions for better future habitat in coastal cities. Cost Effective Management to Reduce Hazardous Substances, and controlled monitoring of pollution in improving Coastal Water Quality.
