LSU researchers will present 50 scientific talks and 17 posters, as well as moderate 14 sessions at the 2016 State of the Coast conference in New Orleans, June 1-3. State of the Coast is the largest gathering of scientists, policy makers, local officials, state and federal agency personnel, business and industry leaders, planners and citizens, who are concerned with the future of the Louisiana coast. Leading experts will present their findings in concurrent sessions over three days at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center.
LSU faculty, students, post-doctoral researchers and staff will present a wide array of research on the most pressing coastal issues. LSU’s expertise in coastal systems and communities spans the disciplines from developing the latest computer models and technology to designing communities and studying the dynamic delta. In addition to scientists and engineers, humanities and social science researchers present their cutting edge work involving coastal Louisiana communities.
LSU Coastal Sustainability Studio, LSU Coastal Studies Institute, LSU Center for River Studies, LSU College of the Coast & Environment, the Louisiana Sea Grant College Program and the new LSU Center for Coastal Resiliency will be in the exhibit hall at booths 23-24 and 34-35. Come by to say hello!
State of the Coast is organized by the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, The Water Institute of the Gulf and the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana. The 2016 State of the Coast will be the fourth biennial conference.
