A look back at ECSA 55
Unbounded boundaries and shifting baselines: Estuaries and coastal seas in a rapidly changing world
We just got back from a great week at ECSA which took place in London on the banks of the Thames Estuary, a heavily modified, industrial megacity estuary. It was great to see such a global multi-disciplinary community of researchers and professionals discuss the issues of outstanding scientific importance in the science and management of estuaries and coastal seas in this rapidly changing world. A lot of fun was had by all with some very insightful presentations.

The event was supported by the journal Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science with editors Eric Wolanski and Mike Elliott who were pleased to launch the much anticipated second edition of Estuarine Ecohydrology : An introduction at the event. To celebrate, Mike and Eric were available to sign copies meet delegates and gave away one copy of the book each day to a lucky conference delegate.
The winners were:
Monday – Vera Semeochenkova,
Tuesday – Rebecca van Coppenolle,
Wednesday – Wojciech Fialkowski.

Our colleagues @mendeley_com, the free reference manager and academic social network supported ECSA55 with some fun giveaways including a special goody bag for our Mendeley raffle which was won by James Tempest @JA_Tempest. Who will no doubt be wearing his Mendeley T-shirt with pride, while his phone remains charged via his new Mendeley powerbank, meaning he can listen to his favorite tunes via his Mendeley headphones, or share the noise on his Mendeley speaker all carried with ease in his Mendeley back-pack and protected from the London rain under the safety of his Mendeley umbrella.
Journals Publisher Luaine Bandounas @LBandounas was joined by experienced journal Editors Mike Elliott of Estuarine, Coastal and Shelf Science and Victor de Jonge of Ocean & Coastal Management for a publishing workshop. The following topics were discussed:
– Preparing, writing and structuring an article;
– Getting to grips with publishing ethics;
– Information on the peer review process.
Workshop attendees also received a goody bag with a notebook, pen and information on how to prepare, publish, promote and monitor their articles. You can find free resources and tutorials to support you in publishing your world-class book or journal article at the Elsevier Publishing Campus.
Thanks to all those who made the event so special!
