COVID-19

In the interest of global safety and at the recommendation of health advisors worldwide, we have decided to postpone the International Coastal Symposium (ICS) until next year.

You will be informed as soon as a new date is confirmed. Please know that your paid registration will be honored at the conference next year and will guarantee that your accepted paper will be published this year (2020) as part of Global Coastal Issues of 2020..

As stated before, all authors must have registration dues paid in order for their paper to be published this year. Please do so as soon as possible to secure your paper as part of the special issue. You will then be able to present your paper (in either oral presentation or poster form) next year at the conference.

We sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding. No one could have predicted this would happen, but we will all get through this difficult time and have a great ICS meeting next year!

No, if you have already registered and payed the fee for ICS 2020 your registration will be valid for ICS 2021 and you only need to keep it and be aware of the information and the updates you may receive by email, our official website and social media. In case that you have an ABSTRACT accepted but no PAPER submitted/accepted you can still register now, in 2020, for ICS 2021. However, if you decide to do so at a later date, we will inform the contact person of every accepted abstract about the instructions and deadlines to register for ICS 2021 to have your ABSTRACT included in the final program of ICS 2021.
Can I modify my previously accepted ABSTRACT?
At this stage, changes are not possible. The submission form will be close in the next months and requests to modify/update the list of authors and their affiliations or to ask for minor corrections in the title of the abstract will not be consider during 2020. We will inform in early 2021 about this possibility and we will explain on how to proceed.

Please notice that we cannot guarantee that we will be able to undo this request and to consider your abstract afterwards if you withdraw it now. For this reason, we would recommend no actions from the authors during 2020. If you finally cannot participate in ICS 2021 just inform afterwards, in early 2021 to be sure that you still keep your slot in the program just in case you finally would be able to attend.
Will I be able to submit new abstracts/papers for ICS 2021?
No, at this stage the Journal of Coastal and program are already. So, late papers considered.
What would happen if we finally need to change the presenter of our accepted abstract to attend to present the contribution in ICS 2021?
This kind of questions and requests will be managed in early 2021 when we organize scientific sessions in the program. We really appreciate your patience and consideration during the next months. Keep in touch with what we publish in our website and social media.
