Delft University of Technology and the Dutch community for coastal research will organise the 8th edition of the Coastal Dynamics Conference, held from 28 June until 2 July 2021.
The conference theme is “Shaping the Future of our Coasts”, and we invite scientists and practitioners from all over the world to contribute their insights and research results of how nature and humans are shaping our coasts, now and in the future.
The Coastal Dynamics conference series advances the community’s understanding of coastal processes, engineering and management, spanning a variety of scales and environments including sandy, rocky and muddy coasts, inlets and estuaries.
The main topics of the conference are:
- Coastal hydrodynamics (waves, tides and surges)
- Coastal sediment transport (subaqueous and aeolian)
- Estuarine processes, fine sediments and vegetation
- Foreshore, beach and dune morphodynamics
- Coastal observations and monitoring
- Coastal management and risk assessments
- Coastal nourishments and interventions
- Long-term coastal change
- Coasts and climate change
- Nature-based solutions.
Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions and rules set out by the Dutch government, Coastal Dynamics 2021 conference will take place fully online, for all participants. Should the situation improve, a hybrid format in which participants can decide to join the conference either online or in person in Delft, will be provided. In that case, participants who wish to travel to Delft from abroad should check the Dutch Government travel advisory.
The final decision on the conference format (fully online or hybrid) will be taken on 15 May 2021, at the latest. All participants will then be notified and given the opportunity to change their registration free of charge once (from online to live attendance or vice versa).
Dates: 28 June – 2 July 2021.
Location: Online/Delft, Netherlands.
