The PECS symposium is a biannual, international conference addressing the physical processes in estuaries and coastal seas. PECS is an independent organization whose purpose is to encourage the exchange of ideas between oceanographers and engineers studying estuaries and related coastal waters. This year's conference included approximately 150 attendees, roughly divided between talks and poster presentations. 

Submission Instructions for PECS Volume

Papers should be submitted to this Ocean Dynamics website. If you already have an account in the Editorial Management System for Ocean Dynamics please use that account, otherwise please register first. Once logged in as an author in the Editorial Management System, click on "submit new manuscript." A new page will pop up with a drop-down list for "Article Type." Please choose "Topical Collection - PECS 2012" and follow the normal instructions for the journal.

Paper formatting is described at this Springer website. Your paper  can be submitted immediately, or at any time up to March 1, 2013 for inclusion in the PECS volume. Papers will be published in the regular journal whenever the review process is complete, so the March 1 deadline will not slow down the publication of early submissions. This schedule should allow the PECS 2012 volume to be published around the time of PECS 2014. 

Bob Chant and Rocky Geyer will be guest editors, with responsibility for assigning reviewers of the PECS manuscripts. We are counting on PECS participants to support our efforts by agreeing to review manuscripts when asked. We will reward the reviewers with a free copy of the PECS volume as long as the money holds out in our PECS 2012 budget.
