Submit Abstract

Learn, innovate and share with industry colleagues by being a part of what promises to be
an engaging and memorable 2021 program.

Uncertainty is the new norm. How can systems, frameworks, institutions and policy be better designed to make ‘adaptive management’ work for Australia’s coast?

Coast to Coast 2021 offers a multidisciplinary space to explore the complexities facing Australia’s coast. We invite everyone who has a stake in the future of Australia’s coast to share ideas that are welcoming and challenging. We encourage you to explore your relationship with the coast. Starting with self, your coastal identity, share your coastal story and be inspired by old and new stories about what we love and fear for Australia’s coast.

We are passionate about Australia’s coast. Bring that passion to ignite new ideas, create a welcoming space and allow knowledge to merge and emerge. See you in Cairns for a warm tropical winter at Coast to Coast 2021.

 

Please note: this call for abstracts does not apply to you if: 

  1. you already had an abstract accepted by us in 2020 and  
  2. you have confirmed with us that you still want to present the paper 

Most authors (over 70) with accepted abstracts have confirmed they will present their papers at the rescheduled 2021 Coast to Coast conference. There is some capacity for additional papers (hence the call for new abstracts). The program will be finalised once authors have registered for the conference to confirm their attendance (before the 15 of April 2021).
