The international Symposium will be held in Potsdam from 6-8 March 2017. The purpose of this symposium is to bring together researchers from several disciplines as hydrology, fluvial geomorphology, hydraulic engineering, environmental science, geography, economy (and any other related discipline) to discuss the effects of global change over the river system in relation with floods. We try to improve our understanding of how rivers are likely to evolve as a result of global change and hence address the associated hazards of that fluvial environmental change concerning flooding. The symposium will be organized by means of invited talks given by prominent experts, oral lectures, poster sessions and discussion sessions for each individual topic. A review/opinion paper from the discussion sessions will be elaborated. Moreover, selected papers presented at the conference will be published in a Special Issue in an International SCI Journal.
Contributions of up to 300-500 words, including title, authors name, affiliations, and contact must have been sent to jalopezuuni-potsdampde before 23 December 2016. Letters of acceptance/rejection were sent to the main author before 31st January 2017.
Registration is now closed. The number of participants is limited to 50.
Our workshop will be held at the University of Potsdam, Campus Golm. Participants can choose from a wide variety of accommodation from hotel, hostel and guest rooms in Potsdam or even Berlin. There is one hotel within walking distance to the university Campus Golm. The campus is accessible with public transport by bus and train. The train takes you to Potsdam main station in 10 min. Below is a small list of recommended hotels.
