The 2022 Conference is scheduled for November 5 in Newport, OR
at Hatfield Marine Science Center’s new Gladys Valley Marine Studies Building
The student research exhibition is a dedicated time when conference participants can interact with student researchers as they explain their marine-related research. This remains an opportunity for students to showcase their research and gain professional experience.
State of the Coast invites contributions from advanced undergraduates (juniors or seniors), recent graduates and graduate students. We welcome submissions from any discipline related to issues and opportunities facing the marine environment: biology, anthropology, law, engineering, policy, chemistry, business, ecology, environmental science, management, and more!
