Welcome Letter

On behalf of the CoastLab2020 Organizing Committees, it is our great pleasure to invite you to participate in the 8th International Conference of Physical Modeling in Coastal Science and Engineering (CoastLab2020) during the 25th -29th of May, 2020 in Zhoushan, China. CoastLab2020 is organized under the auspices of the International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR) and will be jointly hosted by Zhejiang University, Dalian University of Technology, Sichuan University and Zhejiang Ocean University.

CoastLab2020 will build on the successes of previous conferences held in Porto (2006), Bari (2008), Barcelona (2010), Ghent (2012), Varna (2014), Ottawa (2016) and Santander (2018). It will provide a stimulating and enriching forum to discuss the latest developments in physical modeling applied to coastal engineering and in new trends in coastal sciences.

We are looking forward to collaborating with the Coastal and Maritime Hydraulics Committee of IAHR to host a successful CoastLab2020 in Zhoushan.

Yours Sincerely

Prof. Pengzhi Lin, Prof. Zhiguo He, and Prof. Dezhi Ning
