Registration & Abstract submission

We invite you to submit contributions to the 3rd Coastal Symposium "Coast in Transition 2022". Please select focus topic and format for your contribution and submit an abstract by 14 August. The following focus topics can be selected:

A) Nature based coastal adaptation: This topic covers research into combating climate change and the consequences of climate change on the coasts. This includes measures to combat sea level rise and protect against extreme events as well as the renaturation of ecosystems such as seagrass meadows and coastal peatlands.

B) Sustainable fisheries: This focus topic includes research that addresses the impacts of climate change on fisheries and develops strategies for coastal fisheries to adapt to the new conditions. In addition, sustainable fishing methods that can reduce negative impacts on other organisms are also considered here.

C) Multiple stressors: This topic summarizes studies that examine the cumulative impact of stressors, caused by climate change or human use, on coastal life. In addition, options for action that balance protection and use of coastal seas are developed here.

You can choose from three different presentation formats:

1) Short pitches: On the Stakeholder Day (Day 1), research projects, as well as new research ideas, will be presented in a fast-paced and varied manner in 4-minute pitches. There will be one session for each of the three focus topics A, B and C, consisting of a keynote speech and several pitches. Sufficient time for subsequent discussions will be scheduled. The pitches should be presented in German.

2) Scientific presentations: A more in-depth look at research can be presented in the 12-minute scientific presentations on Days 2 and 3. Again, there will be three sessions divided according to the focus topics, one after the other (no parallel sessions). Time will be given for discussion of each presentation. The scientific presentations will be held in English.

3) Posters: Those who would like to present their topic, whether project, question or method, in a poster can do so in German or in English. It is also possible to exhibit two posters (Day 1: German, Day 2&3: English). In this case, the abstract should be in German. Otherwise it should be prepared in the presentation language. A poster session will be held on day 1 and day 3. The format for the posters is portrait with a size of 85 x 120cm (A0).

Please register for the symposium first to receive a link to the abstract submission. Detailed program planning will be done after the scientific committee has reviewed all submitted contributions. A program outline can be found here. Feel free to include an alternative session with your submission. All contributors will be informed by 23 Sep whether their contributions can be considered in the program and will receive detailed instructions on how to prepare them. If your participation is dependent on whether an abstract is accepted, payment of participation fees may be suspended until 30 Sep, 2022, and participation may be cancelled free of charge by the same date.
