Who should attend: As long as you are an undergraduate student, graduate student, post-doctoral researcher, or at an early stage in your career within industry, government or consulting, and your work is related to coastal science and/or engineering, no matter if you are just getting started on a project and only have the future plans to present, or you're days away from defending your Ph.D. dissertation, this is the conference for you!

Accomodation: Conference attendees will be staying in the hosting Hotel located in downtown Mérida, only steps from the main plaza.

Arriving: For those flying in, Mérida has a small airport (MID) with direct flights to Houston, Miami, and Toronto. The coastal lab in Sisal is about 45-min drive from Merida. Once the participant list is finalized, ride sharing from the airport to the Hotel can be coordinated.
