POAC Conferences have always been a meeting place for lively discussion and sometimes heated debate. Notice of the conference is usually circulated well in advance of the conference and people interested in making a presentation at POAC submit an abstract to the Organizing Committee. Accepted abstracts require a paper, usually 10 pages in length, which must be submitted for review. The reviewed papers are published in conference proceedings and distributed at the conference. Unfortunately, past printed proceedings are sometimes difficult to obtain. The following table lists the point of contact for past conferences. Often copies of the proceedings can be obtained through university and research libraries. The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number) for the printed POAC proceedings is ISSN 0376-6756 = Proceedings - International Conference on Port and Ocean Engineering under Arctic Conditions.
