The Congress aims to provide scientists, engineers, organisations, central and local authorities, companies, and young professionals early in their careers a stimulating opportunity to share and discuss recent advances and experiences and identify innovative and emerging trends in hydro-environmental science and engineering.

Organized around eight themes (, aiming to provide an integrative and interdisciplinary platform where science, engineering and societal policy can meet, the Congress will bring together the water science, engineering and management communities to help address the world’s most pressing water challenges.

The 2021 Congress promises to be both exciting and fulfilling for everyone. Your active participation will be the basis of this Congress’ success, and we look forward to receiving your original contributions. We are pleased to announce that the online abstract submission process is now open and accessible here: where you can also find details about the preliminary programme.
