The biennial MEDCOAST congress in Malta is the thirteenth event of the series that was started in 1993 for contributing to coastal and marine sciences, engineering, management and conservation in general and particularly for the Mediterranean and the Black Sea. Since the first conference in 1993 (Antalya, Turkey),  the MEDCOAST conference series has moved around the Mediterranean and the Black Sea, visiting Taragona (Spain), Qawra (Malta), Antalya (Turkey), Hammamet (Tunisia), Ravenna (Italy), Kusadasi (Turkey), Alexandria (Egypt), Sochi (Russia), Rhodes (Greece), Marmaris (Turkey) and Varna (Bulgaria).

Similar to the past twelve events, the technical program of the second Maltese congress will include an opening and keynote session, thematic parallel sessions for oral presentations, several special sessions, a poster session and the closing session, in which the Mellieha Declaration will be reviewed and endorsed by the participants and the best poster winners will be announced and given prizes. The Mellieha congress will also have a rich social program including a half-day cultural tour and a full-day technical trip to interesting sites along the attractive coast of the Maltese islands.
