Submit a Proposal

The Scientific Program Committee for the Coastal and Estuarine Research Federation’s 27th Biennial Conference (CERF 2023) invites proposals for Scientific Sessions and Workshops. In consideration of what we’ve all been through over these past few years, we’ve chosen “Resilience and Recovery” as our conference theme to reflect not only the scientific context of those terms but also the resilience of our own scientific society and community as we recover and move forward.
