Richard Stockton College will host a conference next week on coastal engineering, science and other research topics. A major theme will be how beaches along the East Coast fared under Hurricane Sandy.

The Northeast Shore and Beach Preservation Association conference will feature speakers from Maine to New Jersey, with a number of high-profile New Jersey coastal research experts presenting findings. The conference will be held Monday through Wednesday at the college’s main campus.

Among the speakers will be former Department of Environmental Protection Commissioner Mark Mauriello and Stevens Institute of Technology professor Jon Miller.
