For the information of those attending their first Congress on Coastal Engineering, I should explain briefly the functions and organization of the Council on Wave Research. The first of these Congresses was held in Long Beach, California, in 1950 under the auspices of the University of California. There was at that time no permanent organization with the responsibility for focusing attention on this area of scientific and technical work or for arranging subsequent meetings. At the suggestion of the late Professor Boris A. Bakhmeteff, the Engineering Foundation, an agency of the American engineering societies, formed the Council on Wave Research to promote research in the sciences related to coastal engineering and to hold occasional congresses and conferences for the purpose of making the results of both scientific research and professional experience available to practicing engineers .
