August 2016
 For many of us the summer recess has come to an end, the out of office messages have been switched off and it’s back to work again!

Get ready for many interesting events on the agenda: the 4th International Ports and Terminal Engineering Congress, organised with the support of PIANC Colombia, will take place on September 19-21, 2016 and in October all PIANC Delegates are expected in the exotic city of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for another ExCom and Council meeting, as well as the ninth edition of PIANC-COPEDEC. Preparations for the Conference are running smoothly and we hope that many of you will attend both the fall meetings and the Conference. Please also note that there will be a workshop on October 19 organised by PIANC InCom, ANTAQ and ECLAC. More information about all these events can be found in this newsletter. 

We would also like to remind you about the upcoming ICOPMAS Conference, to be held in Tehran, Iran on October 31-November 2, 2016. Don’t miss out on this interesting event and visit the Conference website for more details and information.

Enjoy reading ‘Sailing Ahead’!
