The 24 papers and posters presented at the eighth Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference held at Bangor University in April 2012 were of a high standard, typical of that expected at a leading international conference. They gave a good indication of the breadth of basic and applied research currently being pursued in UK universities and consultancies. Papers covered a wide range of topics, including coastal management, shelf sea turbulence, renewable energy, cliff erosion, sediment transport, morphological modelling, nutrient and pollution transport, and scour protection, to mention but a few. This briefing reproduces the abstracts of the two Keynote lectures and of three presentations judged by the organising committee to be of particular merit. The next UK Young Coastal Scientists and Engineers Conference will be organised by Marine Scotland in Aberdeen in spring 2013.
