9th Conference on Physical Modelling in Coastal Engineering - CoastLab24

9th Conference on Physical Modelling in Coastal Engineering - CoastLab24
13 - 16 May 2024
Delft, Netherlands

CoastLab is a conference whose focus is on Physical Modelling in Coastal Engineering and Science.

CoastLab24 is organized under the auspices of International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR)

In the coastal zone, many developments are taking place, with much attention to themes like:

  • Climate change impacts, adaptation, mitigation
  • Multifunctional and nature-inclusive designs
  • Development of ports and marine terminals
  • Wave, wind and tidal energy
  • Industrial outfalls

Important dates

  • Abstracts submission: 01 May 2023 to 01 September 2023
  • Notification of Abstract acceptance: 15 October 2023
  • Deadline for final paper submission: 15 December 2023
  • Registration opens: 15 December 2023
  • Deadline for early bird registration: 15 January 2024
