RWTH to Host Flood Protection Conference

In January 2016, the 46th International Symposium on Hydraulic Engineering, organized by the Institute of Hydraulic Engineering and Water Resources Management at RWTH Aachen, will take place in Aachen, Germany.

This year, the conference has a focus on the topic of flood protection.

Mobile or not mobile – this is the question addressed by engineers and scientists in the fields of hydraulic engineering and water resources management at the 46th International Symposium on Hydraulic Engineering (IWASA), scheduled to take place from January 7 to 8, 2016.

Flood protection consists of various components including both technical flood protection, flood precautions, dissemination of information, land precautions and risk precautions.

The 46th ISAWA will intentionally focus on flood protection and other important topics about flood risk management will be discussed on the side.

A number of new developments arose from the experiences of the last flood. These developments will be presented and discussed at IWASA, focusing on mobile and immobile flood protection; ecological flood protection; and communication.

The event will be held at the Technologiezentrum am Europaplatz Aachen (AGIT).
