Following the success of the first three SLaCC meetings, we were pleased to announce that the fourth annual meeting of the Sea Level and Coastal Change (SLaCC) group would take place in Fort William, Scotland, with field excursions to surrounding coastal landscapes. This meeting aimed to be bring together scientists from the UK and NW Europe to discuss their work in all aspects of sea level and coastal changes. We welcomed cross-disciplinary engagement at the meeting, the content of which incorporated data production (e.g. reconstructing past events), modelling (conceptual and prediction) and social science (impact and mitigation).
Postgraduate attendance was particularly encouraged and supported by reduced registration fees.
