Date: August 20-23, 2018

Venue: University of Caen, Caen City, France

Summary: The International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts (ICEC) is a triennial event initiated by the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES). Five such conferences have now been held pin Hangzhou and Guangzhou, China; Sendai, Japan; Hanoi, Vietnam; and Muscat, Oman in 2003, 2006, 2009, 2012 and 2015. With support from related international associations, and with the participation of experts and scholars worldwide, the ICEC has attracted wide attention and has become an important and popular event.  The ICEC provides an opportunity for scientists, engineers, researchers and decision-makers to exchange ideas, research results and advanced techniques, and develop collaboration and friendships. The 6th International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts (ICEC-2018) will be held in the University of Caen Normandy, France on August 20-23, 2018.
