Littoral 2017 Conference, Liverpool, 5-7 June


We are pleased to announce our three-day international conference and excursions exploring the anthropocene and the littoral, with particular reference to the themes of ‘change, naturalness and people’. The conference will seek to examine how humans and human processes influence the littoral, and how these influences may now be viewed as natural, as much as any other natural processes.

The theme will gather all disciplines to explore current issues of relevance to the coast and will be of interest to a wide spectrum of scientists , including those from the physical sciences, climate change scientists and ecologists, social scientists, engineers, policy makers and advisers and practitioners.

The official language of the conference will be English and translation facilities will not be available.
