|Despite the efforts, the conference has seen a decrease of the participation of scientists and disappointingly low participation from the Asian countries; however, despite many withdrawals and no-shows, it has seen a qualified and positive participation.
57 papers have been presented orally, while other 28 have been published in the Proceedings as virtual papers.
The relatively low number of papers, most of them on engineering and technical subjects, have permitted to concentrate the lectures in two sessions only, one dedicated to different aspects of sealines design and construction and one to coastal protection.
It has however appeared evident that the colleagues did not “like” running between the two conference rooms to catch the presentations they were interested in; it has been recommended in the conference conclusions to have a single unitary session.
|AUTHORS & CO-AUTHORS / PAPERS
In 2006, the “style” for publishing has been maintained, with the issue of a booklet with the abstracts and a DVD with the papers.
The names of participants and titles of papers are collected in the Participant & Papers downloadable page.
The presentations (collected after the conference) are available at request.
During the conference, we have presented three books:
• Marine Wastewater Outfalls and treatment systems (by Philip Roberts, Henry Salas, Fred Reiff, Menahem Libhaber, Alejandro Labbe, James Thompson)
• Marine Outfall Construction: Background, Techniques, and Case Studies (by Robert A. Grace)
• Risk Analysis of Water Pollution (by Jacques Ganoulis)Their presentation was once more reinforcing the idea of publishing an MWWD book on marine pipelines, and the colleagues were urged to prepare their contribution for the 2012 Conference.
