Expected communications

Scientific communications

These communications make it possible to understand the complexity and evolution of rivers and large rivers, to reveal the environmental and human challenges of these systems in order to inform management choices. These communications will illustrate the added value of interdisciplinarity for understanding and action.

Feedback from experiences

These presentations report on case studies, contexts, strategies or innovative operational achievements, implemented at different spatial and temporal scales, with an analysis and a perspective allowing the transfer and exchange of experiences, or even coupled “scientific-operational” approaches that are the subject of an analysis of the associated environmental and / or societal gains.

Forward-looking reflections

These reflections open up new concepts and make it possible to take into account in their management the complexity of rivers and large rivers and their dynamics.
