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. Past printed proceedings are sometimes
difficult to obtain. 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. The ISSN (International Standard Serial Number)
for the web-based POAC proceedings is ISSN 2077-7841 = Proceedings of the International
Conference on Port and Ocean Engineering under Arctic Conditions. (Abbreviated key title:
Proc. Int. Conf. Port Ocean Eng. Arct. Cond.; Variant title: POAC).
The POAC Secretariat has put all of the past POAC conference proceedings online.

The papers have been grouped according to first, the year of the conference; second,
the volume number of the proceedings for that conference; and third, the starting page
number of the paper. Three different file formats are used as follows:
* POACXX_Vy.ZIP In this case, all of the papers from the POAC conference of year XX and
Volume y are grouped together into a ZIP file. When unzipped, the individual papers are
available. The file names for the individual papers also have pzz in the title where zz
is the starting page number of the article.
* POACXX_xx-yy.ZIP In this case, the papers are available only in electronic format
(i.e. there were no printed proceedings). This file would represent the papers numbered
xx to yy for POAC conference of year XX. They are all contained in a ZIP file.
* POACXX_Vy_all.pdf These files contain all of the papers in Volume y from the POAC
conference of year XX. In this case, all of the papers are contained in a single Adobe pdf file.
Proper citation to the authors and the POAC conference should be given if these papers are
