Call for Participation

Your contribution is highly solicited to help shape the conference. Complete results or work-in-progress reports of theoretical, empirical, or experimental work in all areas relevant to ecohydraulics are sincerely welcome for oral or poster presentation at the conference. Submission of an abstract is obligatory for all participants. A full research paper or an extended abstract is anticipated but not obligated. Abstracts, research papers, and presentations should all be in English. The peer-reviewed conference proceedings are indexed by SCOPUS and Conference Proceedings Citation Index-Science. ISE 2022 has teamed up with Environmental Science & Ecotechnology and Journal of Ecohydraulics. Both journals will have a special issue for selected high-quality full-text papers. The International Scientific Committee will also recommend some papers to International Journal of Sediment Research. The registration fee holds the same for participants with or without a full paper or extended abstract. Topics to be covered by ISE 2022 are listed as follows:
