Caen / France

On behalf the Local Organising Committee, it is a great pleasure in inviting you to the 6th International Conference on Estuaries and Coasts (ICEC-2018) in Caen, France.

This edition is co-organised under the auspice of the French GIS HEDD which includes 34 French research institutions in hydraulic engineering, and national institutions such as IFREMER, IRSTEA, IFSTTAR, BRGM etc. The GIS HEDD has been recognised and has the support of two French Ministries (Ministry of Research and Ministry of Ecology and Sustainable Development) to strengthen and extend research on Environmental Hydraulics in times of Global change, to bring scientific supports to public policies.

ICEC-2018 will be focused on the theme "Estuaries and Coasts in times of Global Change".

We hope to stimulate discussions, knowledge exchanges between scientists and to promote international cooperation on this important theme during the conference sessions and the technical visit.
