About the Journal

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 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.

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

  1. River morphodynamics and management
  2. Hydraulic structures and impacts on local and catchment sediment transport, flow regime and ecology
  3. Sediment, pollutant and microplastic dynamics in rivers
  4. Fluid Mechanics, numerical modelling and two-phase flow
  5. Climate change and adaptation
  6. Monitoring techniques and AI 
  7. Natural Flood Management, vegetation, wood and river restoration

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.
