2–6 August 2021, Moscow, Russia
4th International Conference on the Status and Future of the World’s Large Rivers
The pressures and impacts on the World’s Large Rivers have increased greatly in recent years. Large rivers are particularly exposed to problems of multiple uses, often with conflicting aims. At the global scale, there is no comprehensive assessment of the current status of the World’s Large Rivers, the conflicting demands on such rivers, and likely future anthropogenic impacts, as well as the potential for restoration and the associated problems.
Therefore, the World’s Large Rivers Conference aims in providing a global forum for a wide-ranging discussion of key issues related to research on large rivers and to their effective and sustainable management, involving both scientists and decision makers.
Important Information: the conference will be held in a hybrid mode, allowing participants to attend either physically on-site or virtually online.
We strongly encourage scientists and practitioners to present their research results and experiences in the fields of
- Hydrology, Hydraulics & Hydroclimatic Impacts
- Sediment Transport & River Morphology
- River Pollution, Ecology & Restoration
- Integrated River Management
as well as in a special session about
- Russian / Arctic Rivers
Special focus throughout all sessions will be given this time to Climate Change and River Response.
All information can be found on our webpage: http://worldslargerivers.boku.ac.at/wlr/
Abstract Submission will be open until May 31st 2021.
We would be happy to see you in Moscow in 2021.
Nice greetings, sincerely
