The conference theme “Future directions from 40°S and beyond” reflects the increasing awareness about the need to find suitable means for adapting to change in the “right” direction. It also identifies a geographical location (in latitude) at the northern extremity of Tasmania.

Australasian Coasts and Ports 2019 will bring together engineers, planners, scientists and researchers to Hobart, to focus on the technological, scientific, policy, planning and design issues related to our diverse and developing coasts,” the organizers stated.

Australasian Coasts & Ports 2019 will continue to publicize the persisting importance of coastal engineering problems, incorporating numerous concurrent streams for technical presentations, half-day field trips and the opportunity to network with colleagues in a vibrant social program.
