The main goal of this Colloquium is to study the ports from a holistic point of view. Thus, the aim is to explore ports as own entity which acted as cultural, economic, technological and institutional modernization drivers. On the other hand, we expect to analyze the seaborne connections between the Atlantic ports which encouraged and permitted the exchange of goods, people, biological agents or cultural trends through the sea. We encourage the participation of researchers from different geographical areas in order to consolidate comparative analysis that must permit us to find some theoretical answers on the contemporary conception of ports. This approach implies the notion of ports as regional development agents.
