Coastal Science at the Inflection Point:
Celebrating Successes & Learning from Challenges

The CERF 2017 scientific program offers four days of, timely, exciting and diverse information on a vast array of estuarine and coastal subjects. Presentations will examine new findings within CERF's traditional science, education and management disciplines and encourage interaction among coastal and estuarine scientists and managers. Additionally, the Scientific Program Committee plans to convene special sessions and workshops that promote intellectually stimulating discussions. Join us and over a thousand of your colleagues to network, celebrate our work, learn from each other and grow within our amazing profession. 

Who attends CERF's Conference?

CERF will convene 1,500 scientists, managers and professionals in government, business, nonprofit and related organizations, graduate students and undergraduate students.

From North America’s coastal states and provinces, as well as from more than 20 countries around the world, CERF conference attendees are scientists and managers who conduct research and observe/manage change within a variety of global, coastal and estuarine habitats. They rely on the information, expertise, methods, training, products, technology and innovative equipment your organization provides.
