85th Annual Meeting of International Commission on Large Dams

When:

July 03 - 07, 2017

Where:

Prague, Czech Republic

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.

ICOLD Benchmark Workshop 2017

When:

September 06 - 08, 2017

Where:

Stockholm, Sweden

The design and maintenance of existing dams represent a challenge for the whole engineering community. In this context, the ICOLD Committee on “Computational Aspects of Dam Analysis and Design” has performed  noteworthy contribution to the diffusion of knowledge in the specific field of numerical modelling. During its long activity, the Committee has organized 13 Benchmark-Workshops with the aim to offer dam engineers the opportunity to compare experiences in the correct use of numerical analyses.

ISHS 2018 - IAHR 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. The Local Organizing Committee is thus delighted to invite you to participate in the 7th International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures, taking place on May 15 to 18, 2018, in Aachen, Germany.

ICOLD 2018 26th Congress – 86th Annual Meeting

When:

June 29 - July 07, 2018

Where:

Vienna, Austria

On behalf of the Austrian national Committee on Large Dams, it is my great honor to invite you to the 26th ICOLD Congress in combination with the 86th ICOLD annual meeting, to be held in Vienna, Austria.

The conference program will include interesting study tours to high-head pumped storage plants, run-of-river plants and excellent examples of Austrian dams at high elevation in the Alps.

The cultural program for participants and accompanying persons will comprise musical performances and excursions to some of Austria’s most impressive sites.

Participants in 2018’s ICOLD Congress can take advantage of the event’s special location and enjoy Austria’s renowned hospitality, cultural heritage and landscape. Vienna is a pleasant and safe city with outstanding conference facilities as well as comfortable international travel connections and a well-developed local transportation network.
A great number of national institutions, the dam owners and the members of ATCOLD are eager to contribute to ICOLD, supporting the Congress in Vienna. Together our aim is a productive coming together for our community based on hospitality and friendship.
