The IAHR Young Professionals Congresses give young professionals, researchers and students the opportunity to present their work and access mentoring from leading global experts. Representing a unique opportunity for networking and promoting their work, the success of the inaugural YP Congress in 2020 with 924 registered participants has ensured that the event is now established as an ongoing annual series organised by young professionals and for young professionals. Free and open to all!

 Why to participate?

  • The congress is a wonderful opportunity to present your work and get mentoring from leading experts. 

  • It represents a unique opportunity for networking as well.

  • This is also the chance to make your work known.

 111 abstracts from 316 young profesionals received!

The call for abstracts for the 2nd IAHR Young Professionals Congress is now closed. We are pleased to announce that 316 young professionals from 38 countries have submitted a total of 111 abstracts on a variety of topics and innovative approaches, including integrated hydrology simulations, adaptation strategies, green infrastructures, synergies in water treatment, erosion control measures, and patterns of microplastics in aquatic systems among others. 

All abstracts will be reviewed by an International Scientific Committee. Once accepted, your abstract will be assigned to one of the sessions chaired by the IAHR technical committees, and on the date of the event it will need to be supported by a one-page poster and a 3- to 5-minute presentation. Young professionals will receive feedback from mentors on their work and will be invited to join the break sessions so they can meet with their peers as well as the leaders of the IAHR technical committees.
