River Flow 2024. 12th International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics


Organized since 2002 under the auspices of the Fluvial Hydraulics Committee, the River Flow Conference Series has become one of the main international forum for dissemination of research and industrial practice on fluvial hydraulics and river engineering.

River Flow 2024 will give you with the unique opportunity to present and interact with the latest experimental, theoretical and computational findings on fundamental river flow and transport processes, river morphology and morphodynamics.

Following on the tradition and success of previous editions of River Flow conferences, River Flow 2024 will feature a day devoted to Master Classes for young researchers, daily keynote lectures, ample time for the presentation and discussion of accepted contributions (full papers and extended abstracts), and the presentation of the Stephen E. Coleman Award distinguishing the best paper first authored by a young researcher.

The website will provide the main information needed regarding registration, abstract submission and key dates, so stay tuned. We are all looking forward to meeting to in Liverpool from 2 to 6 September 2024!

Dr Iacopo Carnacina (


The conference will as well cover issues related, but not limited to:

  • River morphodynamics and management

  • Hydraulic structures and impacts on local and catchment sediment transport, flow regime and ecology

  • Sediment, pollutant and microplastic dynamics in rivers

  • Fluid Mechanics, numerical modelling and two-phase flow

  • Climate change and adaptation

  • Monitoring techniques and AI 

Key Dates


Redmond’s Building, Liverpool John Moores University

Master Classes

Applications for the Master Classes will be open from 1 April to 15 June 2024.

  • The use of agent-based models to improve the emergency management of floods

  • Mechanics of Plastic Transport in Rivers

  • River monitoring and sensor technologies

  • Climate change and adaptation for river management

Short Courses

The course dates are August 31 and September 1 2024. We anticipate about 6 hours of lecture per day with each module covered in about 4 lecture hours. There is no fee registration to attend the course provided the participant paid the conference registration fee. The participants will need to secure accommodations for the two extra days before the main conference activities start on September 2. Interested participants should contact via e-mail Prof. George Constantinescu ( and Prof Iacopo Carnacina ( The email should include a one-page CV and a short paragraph explaining the interest of the participant in taking the short course. We encourage the participants to contact us early. Applications will be received until 23 August 2024. For any additional questions related to the course please contact Prof George Constantinescu.

  • Shallow mixing interfaces and their role in controlling flow, mixing and sediment transport at river confluences

  • Theoretical and laboratory studies of shallow mixing layers

  • Field studies of river confluences
