The 7th UK Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference welcomed 60 scientists and engineers to come together and discuss coastal research. The conference was hosted by the National Oceanography Centre in Liverpool, 30–31 March 2011. Early career practitioners and researchers presented 42 short papers on a range of topics driven by current issues addressed by UK universities, government agencies and consultancies. Although all presentations had a coastal theme, content varied from small-scale processes to regional-scale monitoring and management, covering topics such as structure impact, sediment transport, morphology, waves, currents, ecology, oxygen, estuarine systems, stratification, modelling, observation, ice, renewables and extreme events. This paper presents the keynote lecture and six abstracts considered to be of particular merit by the panel of judges. The conference continues to travel the UK and will be held at Bangor University in 2012.
