26th Armourstone Users Group meeting – 9 May 2019, Porto, Portugal
This annual meeting facilitates the exchange of news and views about the use of armourstone for coastal defences and breakwaters in the UK and around the world. Delegates will receive useful technical updates, along with plenty of time for discussion and networking. The meeting has proved to be of interest to all practitioners in the field including those involved in the supply, specification and use of armourstone. It is a unique opportunity for the meeting of quarry operators, shipping companies, contractors, designers and end-user authorities.
The date of this year’s meeting is Thursday 9 May 2019. The meeting will be hosted by the Instituto Superior de Engenharia do Porto (ISEP), Portugal (https://www.isep.ipp.pt/) and is supported by INESC TEC (https://www.inesctec.pt/en).
The meeting will include guest speakers, presentations by young professionals, and site visits to a coastal project in Angeiras and a local quarry.
The Young Professionals Award will be taking place again this year. This is an opportunity for young engineering professionals and other professionals with less than 10 years post-graduate experience to submit short written papers describing some aspect of an armourstone project with which they have been involved, whether in concept development, detailed design or construction. Successful candidates will then be asked to present their papers at the meeting where the winner will be decided. The deadline for submission of papers is 5 April 2019, please email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
