Young Coastal Scientist and Engineers Conference (YCSEC) 2024

We are pleased to announce that the Young Coastal Scientist and Engineers Conference (YCSEC) 2024 will be held at HR Wallingford on the 26-27 March 2024.

This conference welcomes delegates who are in the early stages of their career. This includes graduate practitioners and post-graduate students (MRes, MSc and PhD Students). The interdisciplinary audience and subject areas are designed to promote connections and integration between young coastal scientists and engineers focusing on both 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, flooding and climate change, coastal erosion and morphological modelling, and the effects of pollution.

We are keen to highlight that not all of us are ‘young’ and that there is no age restriction for attendance at this conference. The YCSEC provides a welcoming and supportive environment to present and discuss research and share good practice. It is a great opportunity to interact with a small community of researchers, allowing you to expand your knowledge and network.

The 2024 conference will be held at HR Wallingford (Howbery Park, Wallingford, Oxfordshire, OX10 8BA).

Key dates:

  • Abstract deadline – 22 December 2023

  • Registration opens – 29 January 2024

  • Conference dates – 26-27 March 2024

  • Conference dinner in Oxford – 26 March 2024 (evening)

  • Tour of HR Wallingford’s physical modelling facilities and UK Ship Simulation Centre – 27 March 2024 (pm)

The expected early-bird registration fee will be £125.00 (includes conference dinner).
