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.
This seminar will assess the future regulatory landscape for environmental standards and the role of a new independent environmental watchdog.
It will be an opportunity to consider key issues raised in the Government’s recently closed consultation on Environmental Principles and Governance post-Brexit.
This two-day course will provide participants with the skills needed to take images collected from a UAV platform such as a quadcopter, process the images into a scene suitable for image processing, and generate classified images.

Rivers and their catchments are characterized and influenced by a range of physical, chemical and biological processes. These processes are in a constant state of flux, varying across both temporal and spatial scales, and are regulated or enhanced by anthropogenic activities, including but not limited to water abstraction, weir creation/removal, dredging and agriculture. Understanding of the hydromorphological and ecohydrological impacts of these activities/ approaches and so, wider socio-economic implications, remains largely rudimentary.
River Rally provides an excellent opportunity to share your experience with a broad audience. Do you have a proven approach or innovation that could help achieve healthy rivers and engage communities in solving water problems? Are you interested in delivering a workshop that is designed to transfer success stories or lessons learned, includes a combination of instruction and hands-on skill building, and will give participants new knowledge they can apply to their work? If so, we need you. Submit a proposal to present a workshop in Cleveland!
Following on from the successful event this year, with 570 registered events taking place, WFMD are aiming for 1000 events in 2020.
