Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference

About YCSEC 2020

Bournemouth University is pleased to host the 16th Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference (YCSEC) on the 6th-7th April 2020. This annual conference brings together early career researchers and practitioners (such as PhD students, Post-Doc researchers and recently qualified professionals) from a variety of different disciplines, all concerned with the physical and biological processes within the coastal environment. In the past, this has included presentations on a diverse selection of topics, such as, but not limited to: marine renewables, impact of flooding and climate change, coastal erosion and morphological modelling, and effects of pollution.

YCSEC provides a unique opportunity for leading young coastal scientists and engineers working in academia and industry, to present their work and network with their peers in an informal setting. The conference incorporates presentations, along with opportunities to network and socialise, with an optional field trip.

Who Should Attend?

This conference welcomes post-graduate researchers (MSc and PhD Students), post-doctoral researchers, and those who consider themselves to be early career researchers. Junior practitioners working in both the public or private sector are also encouraged to attend. The interdisciplinary audience and subject area is designed to promote integration and research connections between scientists and engineers associated with coastal research and practice.

We are keen to highlight that not all of us are ‘young’ and that there is no age restriction for attendance at this conference.

Why Attend?

YCSEC is renowned for providing a welcoming and supporting environment to present and discuss research. It is a great opportunity to interact with a small community of researchers, allowing you to expand your knowledge and network.

Extended Abstract Deadline

The call for abstracts has been extended to the 13th January so there is still time to apply.
