The 19th RRC Annual Network Conference will be held in Nottingham, titled "Engaging with Rivers".
Biodiversity is key to the survival of life on Earth. It underpins the functioning of all ecosystems essential for human well-being, delivering a cultural, social and economic service that enriches our lives. Yet, despite its fundamental importance, biodiversity continues to be lost with its deprivation compromising ecological sustainability. Published in 2016, the National Biodiversity Network's (NBN) State of Nature report, suggests that the UK is one of the most nature-depleted countries in the world ranking 189th out of 218 countries.
On behalf of the IAHS-International Commission of Remote Sensing, we announce that abstract submission for the Remote Sensing and Hydrology Symposium is now open until the end of February. The University of Córdoba hosts this edition, devoted to “Earth Observation for Integrated Water and Basin Management: New possibilities and challenges for adaptation to a changing environment”, from 8-10 May 2018 in Córdoba, Spain.
The chairs of the scientific committee are pleased to announce the 3rd edition of the I.S.Rivers International Conference, from 4th to 8th June 2018 in Lyon, France.
The aim of the I.S.Rivers International Conference is to share research and experiences among scientists and water stakeholders to improve practices for a sustainable management of large rivers. Particular consideration is given to the integration of physical, ecological and social perspectives of the different stakeholders involved in river management (governance, economy, culture).
Call for papers!
Following the success of the 2017 conference 'Urban Rivers and Streams: assets or pollution pathways' CIWEM will be holding our 2018 conference on 18th July in Central London.
This event will present innovative case studies, collaborative approaches and facilitate discussion on the scale of the issue and current progress on both rural and urban diffuse pollution.
The call for abstracts is now open for content for the conference. CIWEM welcome papers addressing the following areas (but not exclusively):
River Flow has become since 2002 a major international conference in river engineering and fluvial hydraulics. It is a unique occassion to present and discuss the latest scientific researches, and to communicate with scientists, engineers, and researchers involved in areas such as fluival flow and structure processes or sediment transport.
The theme for the 21st International Riversymposium is 'Embracing Innovation'. We invite you to submit an abstract for either an oral or poster presentation.
The topics we are looking for this year include:
The 2018 International Conference on River Connectivity (Fish Passage 2018), incorporating the First International Symposium on Hydropower and Fish Management, will bring together Northern and Southern Hemisphere fish passage researchers and practitioners to exchange findings and experience on fish passage issues.
