This symposium, the premier annual academic Louisiana coastal conference, will bring together scientists, engineers, geographers, and policy makers from across the range of geoscience-related disciplines to exchange ideas, interpretations and insights into Louisiana coastal geology - both onshore and offshore - and on associated topics. This year's focus will be on coastal geoscience, specifically including coastal geology, geophysics, geomorphology, and geography. It will be held in the Dalton J. Woods Auditorium of the Energy, Coast and Environment Building at Louisiana State University. John Johnston III of LGS will serve as the symposium chair and Chris McLindon of NOGS will serve as the vice-chair and keynote speaker. There will be credit hours available for licensed geologists as well as an ethics presentation that that will satisfy the Louisiana annual ethics requirements for both licensed geologists and licensed engineers.

Abstracts are to be submitted online for approval. There will also be a poster session, and graduate student posters/presentations are welcome. Talks should use PowerPoint and be timed for approximately twenty minutes; if more time is desired, please contact the symposium chair. Your participation and that of your students and staff is invited.

The deadline for abstract submissions is October 4th
