ISHS 2018 – 7th Annual Symposium on Hydraulic Structures

When:

May 15 - 18, 2018

Where:

Aachen, Germany

Hydraulic engineering is one of the most challenging fields in civil engineering and becomes more and more important in times of climate and demographic change. Particularly, the flow around structures is of a complex nature and flow phenomena are still not fully understood. This symposium aims to bring together experts working in the specialized field of hydraulic structure design from both, research and practice communities. It will provide a forum for presentation and discussion of recent advances in knowledge as well as future needs.

The symposium is yet another event in a series of successful workshops and symposia organized by the IAHR Hydraulic Structures Committee during the last decade – e.g. ISHS2016 (Portland, USA), IJREWHS2016 (Lübeck, Germany), IWHS2015 (Coimbra, Portugal), ISHS2014 (Brisbane, Australia), IJREWHS2014 (Spa, Belgium), IWLPKW2013 (Paris, France), IWLHS2013 (Aachen, Germany), ISHS2012 (Porto, Portugal), and many more.

The 2018 ISHS edition will be held in Aachen, Germany. The surroundings of Aachen are characterized by a long tradition in hydraulic engineering being reflected in a large number of dams, weirs and other structures as well as a high density of consultancies and local water associations.
