Welcome Message

On behalf of the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research and the local organizing committee, we cordially invite you to the 14th International Symposium on Ecohydraulics that will be held from October 10th to 14th 2022 in Nanjing, China, an ancient capital of ten dynasties in Chinese history, boasting numerous historic sites, splendid cultural heritage, beautiful cityscape and sceneries.

Ecohydraulics is a rapidly developing inter-discipline of ecology and hydraulics brought about by the ever-growing concern of aquatic and riparian ecology. Since its first edition in 1994, the International Symposia on Ecohydraulics have provided platforms for scientists and engineers worldwide to discuss cutting-edge scientific progress, compared and evaluated state-of-the-art technical methods, and recommended them to the end-users.
ISE 2022 covers a wide spectrum of topics related to ecohydraulics in theory and in practice, including the hydrological, hydraulic, morphodynamic, structural, ecologic, biologic, and technical aspects of the discipline. Six high-profile keynote speeches will be presented. We are expecting you to present at the symposium and share the latest advancement of your research with the international scientific community. Both oral and poster presentations are welcome. A special issue of Environmental Science & Ecotechnology focusing on this conference will be published. Traditionally, ISE features an ECoENet pre-conference workshop which helps early career researchers (ECR) working in ecohydraulics find opportunities and overcome challenges. Starting from the current edition, ISE plans to provide an interactive lecture of a helpful technical tool applied in one of these three topics (1) fieldwork, (2) lab experiments (3) numerical simulation, and rotate among them in the future.
