River Flow 2018
A major international conference in river engineering and fluvial hydraulics.
Organized by the IAHR Committee on Fluvial Hydraulics, River Flow has become since 2002 a major international conference in river engineering and fluvial hydraulics. It is a unique occasion to present and discuss the latest scientific researches, and to communicate with scientists, engineers, and researchers involved in areas such as fluvial flow and structure processes or sediment transport.
River Flow 2018 will focus on the latest findings in the field of fluvial hydraulics, addressing fundamental issues related to fluid processes of sediments and pollutants in rivers. More practical issues related to river morphodynamics, river restoration, and river interaction with structures will be discussed.
Finally, a specific theme on extreme events (flood, drought) is proposed. Several master classes dedicated to graduate students and young researchers will be organized and led by recognized international experts on topics in hydrodynamics, mixing, morphology, flood hazard and sediment transport.
