« Back to conference website: CORE2021

International Symposium of COastal Resources and Environment (CORE) is a platform for researchers to exchange ideas, make new connections, cultivate young researchers and hence advance this field of research. Following two successful CORE events in 2017 and 2018, the coming CORE2021, themed on Coastal Biogeomorphology and Nature-based Solutions, will be held during 12-16 October, 2021 in Nanjing, China. Due to the uncertainty of COVID-19 pandemic, the symposium will be also held online for guests who cannot travel to Nanjing.

CORE2021 is jointly hosted by Hohai University (China), University of Edinburgh (UK), Sun Yat-Sen University (China) and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland). The symposium is supported by the International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) which is one of the leading international organizations of engineers and professionals in fields related to the water environment.
