Join us in Anchorage for Solutions to Coastal Disasters 2011!
Solutions to Coastal Disasters Conferences are must-attend conferences for coastal planners, managers, social scientists, engineers, geologists, biologists, economists, oceanographers, meteorologists, property owners, elected officials and others interested in the coasts. The Solutions to Coastal Disasters Conference series was developed to provide formal and informal venues for the exchange of information, tools and ideas relating to coastal hazards. This successful conference series has encouraged involvement by a broad audience of coastal professionals for multi-disciplinary approaches to coastal issues.
The Coasts, Oceans, Ports and Rivers Institute (COPRI) of the American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is pleased to announce that the next Solutions to Coastal Disasters Conference will be held June 26-29, 2011 in Anchorage, Alaska. The conference program will follow the format developed and enhanced by Solutions to Coastal Disasters 2005 held in Charleston, South Carolina and Solutions to Coastal Disasters 2008 held in Oahu, Hawaii. Solutions to Coastal Disasters 2011 will start with short courses and an opening reception; it will include plenary and technical sessions, exhibits, posters, field trips, and social events that encourage participant interactions. The Solutions to Coastal Disasters events are held at coastal regions that can provide interesting coastal learning opportunities and attempt to find venues that make it easy for participants to meet informally throughout the programmed event.
The Solutions to Coastal Disasters series has encouraged international, multi-disciplinary participation. There is always a balance between involving more groups in the conference program and maintaining a participant size that fosters interdisciplinary discussions. Solutions to Coastal Disasters 2011 will continue its effort to seek sponsors and exhibitors who will add beneficially to the conference experience and will work with national and international coastal organizations to make more coastal professionals aware of the conference event. Please help in this effort by distributing information on the conference to friends and colleagues.
