The annual NCK Conference will be held at Teylers Museum in Haarlem from Wednesday to Friday March 21-23, 2018. This year's edition is organised by TNO. The program of the conference including all presenters is now available. An sprint session on DINOloket, EMODnet and Open Earth will precede the conference (see item above). The icebreaker will take place on Wednesday night, starting at 19.30h in Restaurant ML, Klokhuisplein 9, Haarlem. Note that there are 2 location of Restaurant ML in Haarlem. The location at the Klokhuisplein has recently been renamed from cafe Stempels into Restaurant ML.
On the 9th of March, NCK and NCR jointly organise a symposium on 'Sediment management in deltas' in Vlaardingen. River to the coastal sea sediment continua are disturbed, globally. Several river-sea-systems are short of sediment mostly due to damming. This causes dramatic impacts such as drowning deltas. Scientists and stakeholders should team-up urgently in research and innovation to find solutions. This symposium addresses the status in the Rhine/Meuse – North Sea system. Furthermore, the DANUBIUS-RI research infrastructure (RI) is presented as disturbed sediment continua may become a key research topic in this RI. The symposium also aims to gain support and ingredients for drafting of a sediment continuum call text to promote as topic under EC FP9, i.e. the follow-up of Horizon 2020.
