Welcome to River Flow 2022, the 11th International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics.
Organized since 2002 under the auspices of the Fluvial Hydraulics Committee of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), the River Flow Conference Series has become the main international event focusing on fluvial hydraulics and river engineering. River Flow 2022 will be a unique occasion to present and discuss the latest experimental, theoretical and computational findings on fundamental river flow and transport processes, river morphology and morphodynamics. The conference will as well cover issues related, but not limited to: the effects of hydraulic structures on flow regime, river morphology and ecology; sustainable river engineering practices (including stream restoration and re-naturalization); and effects of climate change including extreme flood events.
Given the present uncertainty related to COVID-19, the conference will be held virtually.
Following on the tradition and success of previous editions of River Flow conferences, River Flow 2022 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 Master Classes will be held the day preceding the opening of the Conference (7th November 2022). These classes are an excellent opportunity for young researchers to join two experts from their research field for a session of discussions and exchanges, and establish connections with individuals from other institutions working in the same or closely related fields. In these classes a group of selected Master and Doctoral students will have an opportunity to make an extended (30 to 40 min) presentation of their research, which will form the basis for the discussions.
Applications for the Master Classes will be open from June 15 to July 15, 2022.
In order to apply MSc or PhD students must send:
a 1 page CV;
a 1 page summary of the research to be presented
proof of enrolment in a MSc or PhD program
to the following e-mail address: email@example.com
In the submission e-mail, clearly indicate the class you are applying for.
*** The proof of enrolment in a MSc or PhD program may consist of a letter from the supervisor or Department confirming the registration status as a graduate student, or alternatively a copy of the transcript showing satisfactory completion of the degree and date of completion (transcript must be in English or French) ***
*** Information on application procedure and deadline to apply will be announced later. ***

Jorge D. Abad, Scientific Director, RED YAKU, Peru, https://redyaku.com/
Lecture title: Unveiling the diversity of river systems in Lowland Amazonia: from basic science to engineering projects to achieve sustainable river-based development
Dr. Abad received his PhD from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA. Dr. Abad received the 2012 Lorenz Straub Prize by St. Anthony Falls Laboratory (University of Minnesota), and the distinction of "Santiago Antúnez de Mayolo Gomero 2018" Award by the Peruvian National Council for Science, Technology and Innovation for his contributions to science, such as those in the Andean-Amazonian River system. Dr. Abad was the leading PI and scientist for several projects, especially n the Andean-Amazon connectivity where meandering and anabranching rivers are found, applying a range of methods from experiments, field measurements to mathematical computations. Just recently, Dr. Abad has been developing protocols for: 1) the assessment of the effectiveness of natural infrastructure in the Peruvian Andean environment, 2) monitoring water surface and water quality for the entire Amazon basin, a collaboration with the Amazon Cooperation Treaty Organization (ACTO).
Astrid Blom, Associate Professor and Head of the Rivers, Ports, Waterways and Dredging Engineering Section, Department of Hydraulic Engineering, TU Delft, The Netherlands
Lecture title: Channel bed incision in engineered rivers: characteristics and mitigation
Dr. Astrid Blom is an associate professor in the Department of Hydraulic Engineering of the Faculty of Civil Engineering and Geosciences of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). In her research, she focuses on changes in engineered river systems. In particular, she asks how anthropogenic modification and natural change affect the river equilibrium state regarding channel slope and bed surface grain size, as well as how the river responds with time to such change. She loves to develop conceptual and analytical models as tools to increase insight into the physics governing modern and/or historic river problems. She combines these models with analyses of field and lab data, and numerical modeling to extend physical understanding to engineering applications. She is motivated to increase diversity in engineering and science, and loves to work with and educate young researchers.
Peter Ashmore, Professor, Department of Geography and Environment, University of Western Ontario, Canada
Lecture title: What braiding reveals about river morphology, bedload and channel change
Dr. Peter Ashmore is a distinguished professor in the Department of Geography and Environment at the University of Western Ontario, London, Canada. His career at Western Ontario was preceded by short appointments at Memorial University of Newfoundland, Environment Canada, and University of Saskatchewan, with sabbatical leaves at University of Canterbury (Aotearoa New Zealand) and University of Victoria (British Columbia). His research in fluvial geomorphology has included: dynamics of braided rivers; experimental geomorphology; bedload and morphological dynamics in gravel-bed rivers; response of rivers in Canada to climate change; river restoration; effects of urbanization on rivers; geomorphology of semi-alluvial rivers; and critical socio-geomorphology of rivers. He has conducted advisory work that includes contributing to the International Joint Commission project on Upper Great Lakes water levels and erosion of the bed of St Clair River, analyzing the potential effects of climate change on rivers in Canada (for Geological Survey of Canada), and supporting the Ontario Natural Channel Systems initiative.

The author applied to the award when submitting the paper
The submitted paper should be a full paper or an extended abstract of at least four (4) pages
The selection of the best paper will be done by an Award Committee composed by members of the (Leadership Team of the) IAHR FHC. The award will be given during the closing ceremony of River Flow 2022.
* For the purpose of this award, a young researcher is defined as a M.Sc. or Ph.D. student or a researcher who has completed his/her Ph.D. no more than three years before the date of the conference in which the award will be given.
To be announced.
