Since 1989, the Estuarine and Coastal Modeling Conference has provided a venue for commercial, academic, and government scientists and engineers from around the world to present and discuss the latest results and techniques in applied estuarine and coastal modeling in a retreat-like setting with shared meals and ample opportunity for networking. See you in Seattle!
Registration should be done online at our registration webpage. You will need to specify your choice of presentation type (poster or talk) and submit an abstract if you are presenting. The registration fee includes a reception on Monday as well as breakfast and lunch each day.
Many topics areas in estuarine and coastal modeling can be discussed, including: Coastal Flooding • Tidal Energy • Ecosystems • Harmful Algal Blooms • Coastal Resilience • Operational Modeling • Pollutant Transport • Water Quality • Climate Change • Specific Estuarine and Coastal Systems • Waves • Sediment Transport • Chemicals and Floatables • Oil Spills • Inverse Methods • Circulation • Facility Siting • Data Assimilation • Coupled Systems • Strong Buoyancy Forcing • Risk Analysis • Numerical Techniques • Skill Assessment • Data Access, Analysis and Visualization
The conference will be held at Seattle University. Lodging and shared meals at Seattle University will promote a retreat-like environment for the meeting, providing ample opportunity for discussion and meeting new colleagues. Sessions will be held on campus. Downtown Seattle is a 25 min walk or a 10 min car ride.
The Poster Session will be held Monday after the regular sessions in the Silver Cloud Hotel-Broadway, across from Seattle University. Posters may be up to 40x60 inches (either orientation is okay).
Seattle University Housing offers single, double, triple or quad rooms for conference attendees in standard or deluxe residence halls. Reservations for these rooms are made within the ECM15 conference registration site under "accommodations". Amenities include beds made upon arrival, with fresh linens, towels, washclothes, and soap.
The conference will be held at:
Attendees may also submit papers to a special issue of the Journal of Marine Science and Engineering (JMSE). JMSE is offering a Best Paper Prize of 500 CHF (about $500) and publication free of charge. The winner will be announced by 31 December 2018.
