River Flow, the major international meeting in the area of river engineering and fluvial hydraulics, provides a forum to report the latest scientific findings, and to promote information exchange and cooperation among scientists, engineers, and researchers who share a common interest in river flows and transport processes.

The conference will focus on the latest advances in experimental, theoretical, and computational tools in the field of fluvial hydraulics. Participants will consider how these tools can be used to expand our understanding and capacity to predict flow and the associated fluid-driven ecological processes, anthropogenic influences (e.g., heat, dissolved and suspended organic/inorganic material), sediment transport, and morphodynamic processess.

Major efforts are underway all over the world to clean up our rivers and restore river habitats. Managing rivers in an ecologically friendly way is a major component of sustainable engineering design to maintain and restore ecological habitats. Linking watershed processes with river flow and predicting the impacts of river floods is one of the biggest challenges in river engineering. This is why “River Floods” and “River Management, Ecology, and Restoration” will be two of the four major themes of the conference. Addressing these challenges will help increase the impact of river flow research by providing solutions to important practical problems that integrate hydrological, geomorphological, and/or ecological processes with socio-economic needs. By providing a common forum for presentations and discussions, the Eighth River Flow conference will also foster interdisciplinary research and collaboration and rapid dissemination of latest findings, and provide an opportunity to discuss how novel methods and techniques can be used interchangeably in various fields of river engineering, with particular emphasis on flood protection and river restoration.

River Flow 2016 will include special sessions dedicated to the Upper Mississippi River Basin, one of the largest of its kind in the world. This river is of major economic and societal importance for the human communities in the basin. The Mississippi River is also one of the most heavily engineered large rivers in the United States.

Several master classes for graduate students and young researchers will be organized and led by recognized international experts on topics in river hydrodynamics, morphology, and sediment transport.

We look forward to welcoming you to River Flow 2016!
