Second Chinese - German Joint Symposium

on Coastal and Ocean Engineering

October 11 to 20, 2004 Nanjing, China


Background and Topics of the Symposium

NSFC has consistently stressed the important roles of international cooperation and exchange in the improvement of academic standards in the field of basic research and in the promotion of the development of science funds in China. NSFC has established good working relations and has signed 56 collaborative agreements and memoranda of understanding with science funding organizations and international scientific institutions in 38 countries and regions all over the world. International conferences (including bilateral workshops) of high standard to be held in China and organized by Chinese scientists are encouraged and financially supported by NSFC.

The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG), which is the central organization supporting research projects of German universities, has signed various agreements with Chinese research organizations.  These agreements allow the provision of funding for research visits, performance of research projects and joint symposia and they established an instructive framework for future scientific co-operation activities.

In the field of coastal and ocean engineering, it is the global trend of balancing engineering measures with natural environment and ecological systems.  Respective complex and difficult issues, which arose in many countries and areas worldwide, are similar and borderless.  An international symposium on coastal and ocean engineering is seen as an important step aiming at the contribution of more international research collaborations.

There already exist close links between German and Chinese Universities.  This symposium will be organized by Hohai University at Nanjing, University of Rostock at Rostock, Cheng Kung University at Tainan and from 11 to 20, October 2004 in Nanjing. The intention is to congregate German and Chinese scientists within the field of coastal and ocean engineering, to enable and encourage the direct dialog among them and, hence, to inspire new research ideas and the proposal of new joint research projects.  Topics of the symposium will be as follows:

˙      Coastal and Estuarine Hydrodynamics

˙      Waves and Wave Climate

˙      Coastal and Offshore Structures

˙      Environmental Impact Assessment

˙      Coastal Zone Management

˙      Beach Processes and Sedimentation
