For the 2023 WEDA Eastern Chapter meeting in Jacksonville, FL, we want to have a topicspecific event. With this in mind, we felt a relevant topic for this year’s event is Coastal Resilience and Dredging Restoration & Infrastructure Improvements.
We want to encourage presentations that focus on dredging engineering and construction for coastal resilience, restoration and infrastructure improvements including topics such as dredging techniques, materials management, beneficial use of dredged materials (BUDM), protection and enhancement of the marine environment.
Presentations that focus on self-promotion, specific products or corporate marketing will not be accepted. The presenter will be allowed to have a corporate logo on the slides. The presentation
should be 20 minutes with time for questions.
Submission date required no later than 31 July 2023. If selected, presentations must be provided to the Eastern Chapter no later than 30 September 2023.
