Programme

Update on Friday, April 16:

CoastGIS 2021 will be an all-online event. The Preliminary Programme below was developed for an in-person event. The programme is currently being remade for the virtual format, according to symposium participants' abstract submissions, and to better accommodate a variety of time zones.

We are in the process of planning an interactive and participatory online symposium that includes opportunities for casual networking, in addition to the lively talks, presentations, and discussion that you expect. A symposium that brings value, new connections, greater understanding, and inspiration to you – the speakers, presenters, and participants who make CoastGIS an event worth attending.

We will also be producing unique programming that brings you a taste of Finland and Raseborg. Stay tuned for more!

If you have programme suggestions or examples of great online symposium practices, please be in touch with us at coastgis2021@novia.fi.
