You are invited to submit an abstract of 300 words or less. You may submit multiple abstracts. All abstracts must be submitted by Friday, September 28, 2018, via the online submission form. No faxed or paper abstracts will be accepted. All expenses involved in preparing and presenting papers are the responsibility of the presenters. All presenters are required to pay registration fees and all associated travel expenses. Conference space is limited.
Submitted abstracts will be subject to peer review, and acceptance emails will be sent in late October 2018.
Accepted abstracts will be compiled, as submitted, into the conference proceedings, so presenters must edit their abstracts before submission.
Abstracts should profile proven approaches that support one or more of these coastal management goals: healthy ecosystems, resilient communities, or vibrant and sustainable economies. Sessions will be organized within the following topical areas:
- Data Access
- Decision-Support Tools
- Emerging Technologies: Data Acquisition and Processing, Artificial Intelligence
- Use of Digital Coast Resources
- Partnerships for Tool Development and Use
- Innovative Training Methods and Citizen Science
Two different session types will be offered at the conference. You are encouraged to submit one or more abstracts to share your story, tool, or resource.
Oral Presentation: Submit an abstract to give a 20-minute presentation. Similar topics will be combined to form 60- or 90-minute sessions.
Tool Showcase: Submit an abstract to demonstrate a tool interactively to participants. A small table with a monitor, as well as dedicated wireless Internet, will be provided for all Tool Showcase presenters. Presenters are expected to provide their own laptops.
