Welcome to 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.

The symposium is locally organized by the State Key Laboratory of Hydrology-Water Resource and Hydraulic Engineering, the Jiangsu Key Laboratory of Coast Ocean Resources Development and Environment Security, Overseas Expertise Introduction Center for Discipline Innovation on Coastal Resources Exploitation and Security, and College of Harbour, Coastal and Offshore Engineering (Hohai University).

Two special issues (SI) have been open for submission in name of CORE2021: One SI on "Coastal Biogeomorphology" in Frontiers in Marine Science (click here) and the other SI on "Estuarine and Coastal Processes and Geomorphology" in Water Science and Engineering (click here).
