As quoted from the NCR website:
“For this edition we are putting together an exciting program with interesting plenary keynote lectures and parallel presentations around the theme: “Land of Rivers”. This theme links mono-disciplinary excellence to multi-disciplinary innovation in a variety of subjects ranging from discharge extremes, river management, morphology and ecology to long-term river behaviour.
What will the future look like for a Land of Rivers?
A Land of Rivers provides the ideal natural conditions for housing, agriculture, and infrastructure connecting the ocean to the hinterland. However, fluvial systems, particularly deltas, have to cope with sea level rise, increasing river discharge extremes, freshwater shortages, land subsidence, changing species composition and increasing population. A Land of Rivers thus faces significant societal and scientific challenges. These challenges will be addressed by the key-note speakers who will present innovations in how to cope with discharge extremes, river management, morphology and ecology to long-term river behaviour. We invite you to contribute your best work and join the discussions!”
