How to propose a communication?
You may fill a declaration of intent via SciencesConf platform by October 22, 2021.
Your final contribution (extended abstract) must be submitted by November 26, 2021, via SciencesConf platform.
Your communication should fall within the theme of I.S.Rivers 2022
Your document has to be written according to the imposed document model; it will necessarily include on the first page the French-English translation of the title, the key words as well as a summary of 10 lines in both languages (the translation by us is possible after selection – it is a paid service) and an extended summary written in French or English (2 pages maximum).
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.
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.
