International Symposium on "Advances in Coastal Research with special
reference to Indo-Pacific (AdCoRe IP-2019)"

17-19 December 2019 | Chennai, India
Organized by National Centre for Coastal Research (NCCR) and Research and
Information System for Developing Countries (RIS)

United Nations Sustainable Development Goal 14 (SDG 14) commits countries
to unite over what is a truly global responsibility – the protection of our
oceans and the lives below the sea. By 2020, countries commit for achieving
the sustainable management of marine ecosystems and significantly reduce
marine pollution of all kinds. This will require an international
scientific partnership, regulation for fish harvesting, fishing, and
enhance our research knowledge on critical issues concerned to the survival
of life below water. The Ministry of Earth Sciences is the focal point in
the country to provide input on regional and global science based issues
for policy making.
Research and Information System for Developing Countries (RIS), in
collaboration with the Ministry of External Affairs (MEA) and NITI Aayog,
Government of India, and with support from the UN in India, is spearheading
a programme of national consultations among lawmakers, policymakers,
academia, private sector and the civil society on the Sustainable
Development Goals (SDGs).
The National Centre for Coastal Research (NCCR), Chennai is an attached
office of the Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India. NCCR aims to
apply scientific tools and techniques in addressing problems like erosion,
ecosystem changes and seawater quality monitoring to monitor the levels of
marine pollutants in the seas around India. The NCCR implemented programmes
on integrated coastal and marine area management (ICMAM) plan, GIS-based
information for critical habitats, determination of waste assimilation
capacity, development of EIA guidelines, determination of ‘no impact
determination of best use classification for coastal waters, shoreline
management plans, ecosystem modelling for coastal habitats, marine
ecotoxicology and storm surge inundation modelling. NCCR attracts more
interaction by research communities at the national and international level
with its competence and capabilities developed for the last three decades
and enhance the countries capabilities in addressing the challenging
problems prevailing in the coastal zone.
India’s focus on oceans and marine resources management has been forward
looking. With close to 129 institutions in the country working on marine
and ocean related issues, largely supported by four ministries of
Government of India. NCCR has a mandate to address the coastal issues and
challenges across the coastal states of India. Countries across the
Indo-Pacific region are having common coastal problems and issues to be
addressed. Hence, to share the scientific knowledge on advances in coastal
research an International Symposium on Advances in Coastal Research with
special reference to Indo Pacific- 2019 (AdCoRe IP 2019) is being organized
by the NCCR, Ministry of Earth Sciences, Government of India in
collaboration with RIS. The symposium is expected to attract the global
scientific experts, academician, researchers and policy makers onto the
common platform of collaborating in the area of global challenges facing
coastal regions worldwide. Outcome of the symposium will be useful to
better understand the common coastal issues of concern, enhance regional
cooperation, devise unique strategies and fine tune national policies
across the Indo Pacific region.

Themes of the Symposium
Keeping the focus on “Coastal Research Advances”, we invite papers on
topics of interest to Ocean Scientists / Academicians /Engineers and
Technologists in the following areas:

- Coastal Erosion and Sediment Transport
- Marine Pollution and Marine Litter
- Forecasting Coastal Hazards and Sea Level Change
- Coastal Vulnerability, Floods and Modeling
- Coastal Ecosystems and Modeling – SDG 14
- Climate Change and its Impacts on the Coasts
- Blue Economy (Resources, Energy) and Coastal Governance
- Ocean Technologies and Small Island Developing States

Call for Extended Abstracts
One page extended abstract of research papers giving details on objective,
methodology, salient results and conclusions may please be submitted
through conference portal online
on or before 31st August 2019. Times New Roman Font of 10pt size with
single space may be followed for preparation of abstract. The title of
paper, authors’ names and their affiliations and the E-mail Id for
