The Future of UK Coastal Research – 13th UK Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference

13th-UK-Young-Coastal-Scientists-and-Engineers-Conference-e1495528184237In April 2017 WISE CDT students Paul Bayle, Stephen Clee, Jonathan King and Laurence Hawker attended the 13th UK Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference (YCSEC), which was also hosted by WIRC@Bath. The event provided a remarkable opportunity for the students to present their work to other leading scientists and engineers. Building on the success of previous conferences, this YCSEC brought together over 60 researchers from more than 30 UK and international institutions for two days of fascinating presentations and lively discussions.

Over the two day event, there were 27 outstanding presentations on topics including coastal tourism, beach morphology, wave processes, ocean engineering and port operations. Posters were displayed which facilitated thoughtful discussions during networking sessions. The WISE CDT students presented a mix of oral and poster presentations describing their work. The finale of the event combined business with pleasure at an entertaining conference dinner at the Tramshed in Bath.
