2023 State of the Coast Conference

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 several partners. SOC2023 will be in person at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans from May 31 to June 2, 2023. 

Our most recent conference, SOC2021, was a virtual event that consisted of three days of presentations by leading experts in concurrent sessions, keynote presentations, poster sessions, and networking opportunities. More than 1,000 scientists, landowners/managers, federal and state agency personnel, local officials, industry and business leaders, resource users, and interested citizens attended the sixth iteration of this biennial conference.
