The 8th International Conference on Scour and Erosion, ICSE 2016, kicked off yesterday in Oxford, bringing together scour and erosion specialists from more than 30 countries.

Over 130 papers will be presented during the four-day event to an international audience of scientists and engineers from the broad areas of civil engineering, hydraulic engineering, geotechnical engineering, coastal and offshore engineering, according to the organizers, HR Wallingford.

Topics covered include the fundamental mechanisms of erosion and scour, modelling (both physical and numerical) of erosion and scour processes and engineering applications that involve scour and erosion processes.
