NCK days 2016

NCK days
Thursday, 17 March
Inspiration Center Grevelingen - 3253 Ouddorp, Netherlands

We are looking back on a successful edition of the NCK days and would like to thank you all for your presence and contribution! The presentations and posters were interesting, which was also reflected in the distribution of the votes for the best paper and poster. We congratulate Matthieu de Schipper (best presentation) and Abdel Nnafie (best poster) with their achievement. Bert van der Valk and Frans Beekman guided us along the beach and dunes of Westenschouwen with nice stories, which made the field trip very pleasant and the sun did the rest! We would like to thank Deltares for organising this edition of the NCK days.

The book of abstracts is available pdfhere.
