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.
INCHOE 2014 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.
