The State of the Coast (SOC) conference is the largest statewide conference of its kind, providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment and economy. The Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana (CRCL) produces this forum, the need for which grows with every acre of land lost to the Gulf of Mexico, along with our partners: the Coastal Protection and Restoration Authority of Louisiana, the Water Institute of the Gulf and Sea Grant Louisiana.
SOC2023 consisted of three days of presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote talks, poster sessions and networking opportunities.
SOC2023 was one of the largest conferences of its kind, with 10 conference topics providing an interdisciplinary forum to exchange timely and relevant information on the dynamic conditions of Louisiana’s coastal communities, environment and economy.
SOC2023 was attended by more than 1,200 scientists, landowners, land managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, students and residents of coastal communities.
Our theme for SOC2023 reflected the vision we have for the conference and for coastal Louisiana’s future: Together Again. We recognize that the value of the conference is in all those who will be together again – as attendees, presenters, exhibitor and sponsors. We hope this SOC was the best one yet.
