Coastal Zone 2011

Coastal Zone 2011 will be held July 17-21, 2011, at the Hyatt Regency in Chicago, Illinois. In keeping with the location and acknowledging the changing coastal and ocean landscape, the overall conference theme is "Winds of Change: Great Lakes, Great Oceans, Great Communities." Sessions will be organized around four conference tracks: Planning for Resilient Great Lakes, Coasts, and Ecosystems; Healthy Habitats, Healthy Coastal and Great Lakes Communities; Observing, Modeling, and Monitoring; and Vibrant Coastal, Great Lakes, and Marine Economies. Abstracts for panel and oral presentations, posters, cafe conversations, and training workshops are due on October 8, 2010, and must be submitted online.

U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) scientists have participated in this meeting in the past (see related Sound Waves article "Scientists Meet Managers at Coastal Zone 2007") and USGS scientists Ann Tihansky, Norm Granneman, and Susan Russell-Robinson are members of the Coastal Zone 2011 planning team.

Conference partners include the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the Department of the Interior, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. As it becomes available, more information about the conference program and abstract submission will be posted at
