For the first time in its history, the ICOLD Annual Meeting will be held in Prague. On behalf of the Czech National Committee on Large Dams, one of the founding members of ICOLD in the early thirties, let me introduce what will be on the agenda of ICOLD 2017 Annual Meeting, which is to be held in the charming capital of the Czech Republic.

During your visit to the Czech Republic on the occasion of the ICOLD 2017 Annual Meeting, you will have an opportunity to attend the technical part of the Annual Meeting as well as to learn more about the history and present time of dams and experience the cultural and social life of our country.

The key event of the technical agenda of the Annual Meeting will be a one-day symposium called “Knowledge Based Dam Engineering“. Other important items on the agenda will be the discussions of the Technical Committees, Working Groups, regional clubs and other groups of ICOLD. The venue – Clarion Congress Hotel Prague – and its surroundings will offer a pleasant working environment for all the events held as part of the technical programme of the Annual Meeting.
