The conference grew from a cooperative effort involving the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE), the Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of ASCE, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Coastal States Organization, and the American Association of State Flood Plain Managers.
