It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the International Coastal Symposium (ICS2018), to be held from Sunday 13th – Friday 18th May 2018 at the Haeundae Grand Hotel, Haeundae Beach, Busan, Republic of Korea. The theme is ‘Safe Coasts Beyond Climate Change and Coastal Development’. The International Coastal Symposium (ICS) is now in its 15th edition and this is the first time in Asia.

The Symposium is co-hosted by Korea Institute of Ocean Science & Technology (KIOST) and Korean Society of Coastal Disaster Prevention (KSCDP), under the auspices of the Coastal Education and Research Foundation (CERF) and the Journal of Coastal Research (JCR)

The ICS brings together delegates from all over the world to collaborate and discuss the most current coastal research studies and projects. The proceedings of the conference, published as peer-reviewed papers in the Journal of Coastal Research, represent an invaluable resource for coastal scientists, engineers and managers.
