On behalf of the CoastLab2020 Organizing Committees, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 8 th International Conference on the Application of Physical Modelling in Coastal and Port Engineering and Science (CoastLab2020) during the 9th-12th of December, 2020 in Zhoushan, China.

CoastLab2020 is organized under the auspices of the International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR). It will be jointly hosted by Zhejiang University, Dalian University of Technology, Sichuan University and Zhejiang Ocean University, and co-organized by Bureau of Science and Technology of Zhoushan, Hohai University, Nanjing Hydraulic Research Institute, Ningbo University, Journal of Marine Science and Engineering, Key Laboratory of Offshore Geotechnics and Material of Zhejiang Province, International Joint Research Center for Offshore Civil Engineering(Ministry of Science and Technology of the People's Republic of China), the Engineering Research Center of Oceanic Sensing Technology and Equipment (Ministry of Education of the People's Republic of China). 

Coastlab2020 will build on the successes of previous conferences held in Porto (2006), Bari (2008), Barcelona (2010), Ghent (2012), Varna (2014), Ottawa (2016) and Santander (2018). It will provide a stimulating and enriching forum to discuss the latest developments in physical modelling applied to coastal engineering and new trends in coastal sciences. 

The Coastlab2020 will be part of celebration programs of IAHR 85th anniversary. We are pleased to have the president of IAHR, Prof. Joseph H.W. Lee, to be our guest of honor during the opening ceremony! Collaborating with the Coastal and Maritime Hydraulics Committee of IAHR, we are looking forward to hosting a successful Coastlab2020 in Zhoushan.
