In the frame of the first IAHR online forum, the IAHR Technical Committee on Fluvial Hydraulics will hold a special session entitled “Fluvial Hydraulics - Challenges for a better future”. This session will bring together young and experienced researchers active in the field of fluvial hydraulics. It is a unique opportunity for young researchers and PhD students to share their views for a better future in short video pitches presenting the way they propose to act in this direction through the research they are conducting. These pitches will be followed by a live discussion with all interested members of IAHR, chaired by Claudia Adduce and members of the Fluvial Hydraulics Committee Leadership Team on the presented topics and on the future of our actions.

Call for video submissions
