Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics Set for Next Week
The Eighth International Conference on Fluvial Hydraulics, named River Flow 2016, will take place on July 12-15, 2016 in St. Louis, MO.
River Flow, an international meeting in the area of river engineering and fluvial hydraulics, will provide 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.
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.
