The 5th International Symposium on Shallow Flows (5th ISSF) is a follow-up of earlier  shallow-flow meetings in Delft (NL, 2003), Hong Kong (CHN, 2008), Iowa City (USA, 2012) and Eindhoven (NL, 2017). ISSF is the major meeting event in the area of environmental fluid mechanics and hydraulics, attracting primarily participants from academia and from environmental research institutes. The 5th ISSF is organized under auspices of the Fluid Mechanics Committee of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research IAHR.

All sessions, including the opening ceremony on October 23, all the plenary lectures and all the 4 parallel sessions (Session A, B, C, D) during October 23-25 will be livestreamed. For the complete program of this event, please visit its official website.
