The SIMSEA program was introduced originally by ICSU Regional Committee for Asia and the Pacific to support Future Earth led by ICSU and ISSC, particularly from the viewpoint of sustainability of the marginal seas in South and East Asia.

The workshop aims to strengthen a network of networks among researchers to support SIMSEA, to propose interdisciplinary research plans to achieve within the framework of SIMSEA, and to plan some case studies which may contribute to the integrated coastal zone management based on solid marine science.
