The international conference I.S.Rivers focuses on the sustainable management of the world’s rivers, especially European ones. 
The I.S.Rivers conference concentrates on the state of art management strategies and lessons learned from individual case studies. 
Particular consideration is given to the integration of physical, ecological and social perspectives of the different stakeholders involved in river management (governance, economy, culture), which is reflected in the title of the conference (“Integrative Sciences for rivers”).

The ambition of I.S. Rivers is:

To promote multidisciplinary approaches

  • To identify and discuss the most recent scientific advances regarding complexity and diversity of rivers, in particular functioning, ecological services, stakeholder involvement and management strategies;
  • To share experiences of research and practices, implementation of local policies at different scales with various human and geographical contexts: hydrographic districts, corridors, large cities, transition zones and estuaries.

To engage all stakeholders and to build links

  • To gather highly skilled professionals from various domains, in order to promote knowledge transfer between scientists, river managers, consultants, residents and varied users.
  • To stimulate European and international collaborations between scientists and river managers for the purpose of improving decision support and practices.

Registrations for the I.S.Rivers will open mid-March 2015. It will be online registrations only.
