"The 14th Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference took place at the University of Hull, from the 19th to the 21st of March 2018. This event gathers early career PhD students, academics and professionals from around UK and Europe. It is a great opportunity to keep up-dated with ongoing research projects. Presentations and posters along with keynote lectures covered a large range of topics including salt marshes, coastal adaptation, ecology, coastal socio-sciences, laboratory based studies, numerical and computational modelling.
The conference provided a range of opportunities to network with developing and established researchers. The first day provided social interactions during a field trip to Spurn point national nature reserve, in the mouth of the Humber estuary. The conference dinner and the coffee breaks around the posters also provided time to get to know other researchers that we may end up collaborating with in the near future."
