Abstract : The Sixth International Symposium on Engineering and Science of Coastal Sediment Processes, Coastal Sediments 07, was held in New Orleans, LA, May 13 17, 2007. Nearly 200 papers were presented in four concurrent sessions over 3 days, with approximately 350 attendees from 25 countries. Coastal Sediments 07 celebrated the 30-year anniversary of the conference series. The theme of Coastal Sediments 07 was Coastal Engineering and Science in Cascading Spatial and Temporal Scales. This theme was chosen to stimulate research at temporal and spatial scales at which coastal engineers and scientists must work in developing knowledge and capabilities to assist society in managing the coast. This forward-looking theme was successfully reflected in all the presentations and discussions. Three prestigious awards were presented at the traditional Awards Luncheon held on the last day of the conference. These awards went to Drs. Leo C. van Rijn, Edward B. Thornton, and Nicholas C. Kraus.
