This symposium will acquaint new and established researchers with current capabilities and coastal science activities of CDU and AIMS relevant to Northern Australia. In doing so, the symposium will provide a valuable forum for discussion of the past and future of integrated coastal science in Northern Australia, further strengthening links between CDU and AIMS. Speakers will be challenged to reflect on the evolution of their fields and share their vision for inspired, strategic research in the North.
The symposium will run 3rd – 4th September 2013 at the CDU Casuarina campus and the ATRF and AIMS facilities in Darwin, with a day and a half of themed sessions and break-out discussions. Sessions will comprise a mix of keynote presentation (25 mins incl. questions; indicated in bold in following program) and briefer updates from researchers working on current projects (15 mins incl. questions).
