The con­fer­ence will fea­ture aca­d­e­mic, indus­trial, and gov­ern­men­tal per­spec­tives on mar­itime sys­tems, cul­tures and tra­di­tions, pol­i­tics, his­tory, clus­ters, oper­a­tions, eco­nom­ics, logis­tics, envi­ron­men­tal issues, and infra­struc­tures.

    In order to under­stand human inter­ac­tions with the ocean, it is nec­es­sary to take an inte­grated view of ter­res­trial and marine urbanism:

    • How does a har­bour develop into a port?
    • How do ports inter­act with cities?
    • How do off­shore activ­i­ties influ­ence onshore life?
    • Is urban­i­sa­tion of the sea on the increase?
    • What roles do small towns and large cities play in the global net­work of port processes?

    Sea, Port, City will con­sider these ques­tions and more, dis­cussing such top­ics as ship­ping and trans­port logis­tics, off­shore cul­tures, port oper­a­tions, fish­ing sup­ply chains, the sea-​port-​city inter­face, mar­itime tech­nolo­gies, off­shore energy, social dynam­ics in mar­itime com­mu­ni­ties, and cli­mate change and the environment.
