Future Earth Australia and the Australian Climate Change Adaptation Research Network for Settlements and Infrastructure together with Climate-KIC are hosting a two-day forum and workshop on the Gold Coast on Monday 19 August and Tuesday 20 August. The aim of this event is to bring together early career researchers and practitioners to share their work and network across disciplines.

This event will provide a unique opportunity for those conducting research/practicing in engineering, science, urban planning, the built environment, social sciences, economics and business to meet fellow researchers and practitioners from other Australian institutions and facilities. Due to the event’s proximity to the 12th Queensland Coastal Conference, this event will also focus on the coastal environment and the challenges we collectively face in shaping, managing, and conserving the coast.

Participation is open to early career researchers, practitioners in industry or government, and students (Hons, Masters or PhD) with an interest in coasts. This workshop has been purposefully kept small, with a maximum of 20 applicants selected to participate, to ensure that each participant has the chance to listen to and speak with all the other participants and thereby build lasting connections within the coastal field.

Successful applicants from Future Earth Australia member organisations () who do not live within reasonable driving distance to Griffith University, Gold Coast Campus, will be eligible for a travel allowance of up to $300 to cover a return domestic flight to their city of origin. Accommodation, lunch and a welcome dinner will be fully provided.

Submission Guidelines:

To apply, please email the registration form with an abstract of up to 250 words to by 11.59pm Sunday 14 July 2019. Please nominate one referee (academic, industry or government) to support your submission.

Your abstract/proposed presentation should clearly identify your research area of interest (as per the list below):

  1. Costal planning, management and communities
  2. Coastal restoration
  3. Coastal conservation
  4. Coastal response to extreme events and to climate change
  5. Other coastal research (please specify in your application)

Successful applicants will be required to give a 10-12 minute presentation expanding on their abstract and to contribute to the forum/workshop discussions with fellow participants and forum partners.
