Instructions for Presentation

In every room, a Chairperson will be responsible for the session organization. Even though the presentation time allocated to each paper is basically 12 minutes followed by 3 minutes of discussion, it may be changed under the Chairperson’s decision.

Presenter should prepare the presentation in the style of Microsoft PowerPoint slides. A computer and a LCD projector will be provided in each session room. Windows 7 and Microsoft PowerPoint 2010 are available in the computer of the session room. Please consider those conditions if you use the later version of Microsoft PowerPoint. To avoid time-consuming switching from one laptop to another, presenters will not be allowed to use their own laptops.

Presenters are requested to come to the presentation room 10 minutes before the session starts. Then copy your data into the computer and check if your presentation works. The using of USB memory to transfer data is at presenter’s own risk.

About APAC

The 7th International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC2013) will be held in Bali, Indonesia in September 2013. The aim of the conference is to promote scientific advancement, technological progress, information exchange, and cooperation among engineers and researchers in coastal, port, and ocean engineering and other related fields.

The scope of the conference will be broad, covering all issues related to coastal, harbour, and ocean engineering. Specific themes include, but are not limited to:

  • Coastal preservation and sediment transport
  • Climate change and coastal adaptation
  • Lowland development
  • Marine ecology and environments
  • Marine renewable energy
  • Ocean wave, tides, storm surge and tsunami
  • Coral reef preservation

The conference was first held in Dalian, China in 2001 by the name of Asian and Pacific Coastal Engineering (APACE). To reflect a broader scope, the conference was renamed to Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC) and it was subsequently held every two years in different countries including Japan, Korea, China and Singapore. The previous five conferences were successfully held in the following countries:

  • The 1st Asian and Pacific Coastal Engineering Conference (APACE 2001) was held in Dalian, China, 2001.
  • The 2nd International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC 2003) was held in Chiba, Japan, 2004.
  • The 3rd International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC 2005) was held in Seogwipo, Jeju Island, Korea, 2005.
  • The 4th International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC 2007) was held in Nanjing, China, 2007.
  • The 5th International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC 2009) was held in Singapore, 2009.
  • The 6th International Conference on Asian and Pacific Coasts (APAC 2011) was held in Hongkong, 2011
