The NCK Days 2023 will be held from 29-31 March 2023 in Delft. We will keep you posted on updates regarding the venue, excursion, hotel option, the program here.

Coastal engineering changed over the last decades from shortening our coastlines and building barriers to engineering solutions with sand nourishments, rebuilding seagrass meadows and diversifying foreshores. The coastal management toolbox is getting bigger. However, is it already big and diverse enough? Are all tools sufficiently tested? Are new tools needed? Is our knowledge sufficient for applying available tools?

In the upcoming NCK conference, we are looking for the wide variety of coastal engineering solutions and the science that is needed to support new approaches. On both days keynotes will be given on this topic. On Thursday by Fernando J. Méndez Incera from Geomatics and Ocean engineering at the University of Cantabria and on Friday by Wouter van der Heij from the Waddenvereniging. 

We welcome contributions covering field work, numerical modelling, conceptualization, lab experiments, best-practices, etc. for the full coastal system with its estuaries, beaches, mangroves and coastal seas. In addition to case studies in the Netherlands, we warmly welcome contributions from areas outside the Netherlands. We aim to touch on the question whether our approaches are already diverse enough and whether our knowledge and future research plans contribute to making our coasts ready for upcoming climate change.

To contribute to NCK2023, you can submit your abstract in docxthis template. The deadline for abstract submission is the 17th of February 2023. The registration is open until March 10. We look forward to your contribution!

Best regards,
