The ICE calls on coastal experts to share knowledge ahead of conference
ICE members and non members are invited to submit papers on a range of coastal management topics, from coastal renewable energy systems, and effective estuarine engineering to funding and accountability, ahead of the ICE’s Coastal Management 2011 conference taking place in Belfast next year.
Innovative Coastal Zone Management: Sustainable Engineering for a Dynamic Coast is the ICE’s
7th coastal management conference, and is supported by 29 international organisations. It will feature keynote addresses from leading experts on sustaining and developing coastal zones.
Economic and social needs
It will also address the barriers to allowing coasts to meet our economic and social aspirations while respecting their natural function.
The successful authors will present their papers, which will also be recorded in the formal proceedings published after the conference.
ICE maritime panel chairman Ben Hamer said: “We hope to see a broad range of papers from those involved in coastal zone management both in the UK and internationally.
“This conference presents a great opportunity for cross industry knowledge sharing and networking.
“The formal proceedings also provide a unique resource for organisations wanting to access the most up to date industry information - a useful tool for successful authors in exposing their papers to experts and leaders in the coastal management arena.”
- Paper abstracts should be submitted by 15 November. Abstracts will be reviewed by the organising committee and authors will be notified in December 2010 if they have been selected to submit a paper for the conference.
