XBeach, the open-source nearshore morphodynamic software, developed by IHE Delft, Deltares and TU Delft, was presented for the first time 10 years ago. 

We would like to celebrate this anniversary with a free conference on the development and application of the XBeach and other morphodynamic models on the world’s coasts.

This event will be held during the Delft Software Days at Deltares in Delft from Wednesday 1 November – Friday 3 November 2017, with kind sponsoring from the Netherlands Centre for Coastal Research (NCK) and Deltares.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS – submit your PDF one-page abstract to XBeachXConference@deltares.nl by 1 September 2017 using the attached format. We will notify you of acceptance by 15 September. On your abstract please indicate one or more the following topics:

- Processes: 

o Hydrodynamics (wave transformation, rip currents, circulation, runup, flooding, groundwater flow)

o Morphodynamics (storm-induced erosion, bar migration, longshore transports)

- Environment:

o Sandy coasts, dunes and shorelines

o Coral, gravel and rocky coasts and shorelines

o Vegetated coasts and shorelines

o Ports, waterways and ships (interaction with structures, ship-induced waves)

o Other

- Numerics and validation:

o Numerical methods

o Boundary conditions

o Coupling to other models

o Field and lab observations for validation


Talks on modelling approaches other than XBeach are very much welcome! 

Contributions from MSc and PhD students are encouraged.


PROCEEDINGS – the proceedings will consist of the abstracts and a pdf of the presentations.


To be sure: this conference is not an alternative to the beginner’s and advances courses which are offered on Monday 30 and Tuesday 31 October. 


We hope to see you in Delft!
