Upcoming Shortcourses and Conference on Integrated Science for River Management

Workshops & Courses
Expiration Date: 
River Restoration: Fluvial-Geomorphic and Ecological Tools
11-15 June 2018, Beaumont du Ventoux, Provence FR 
This shortcourse/workshop emphasizes understanding geomorphic process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration projects and programs, with specific applications and field visits to Mediterranean and mountain environments.  The course draws heavily on innovative process-based river restoration and management experiences in France and elsewhere in the EU, complemented by experiences in North America.  Instruction includes lectures, field exercises, problem sets and workshops on approaches to planning and implementing process-based restoration, with instructors drawn from multiple disciplines, and from academia and practice on both sides of the Atlantic. It’s a great opportunity to make connections with others working on similar issues in different geographic and institutional settings. Registration is now open, with early-bird discount ending April 15th. (in English)


ISRivers: Integrative Sciences and Sustainable Development of Rivers
4-8 June, Lyon FR
The Beaumont course is held the week after the international conference ISRivers, on integrated sciences for river management.  ISRivers is held every three years and brings together researchers and practitioners from across Europe and around the world, encouraging conversations across disciplinary and national boundaries.  Registration is now open.

Geomorphic and Ecological Fundamentals for River and Stream Restoration
6-10 August 2018, Truckee, California USA
This five-day introductory course emphasizes understanding geomorphic and ecological process as a sound basis for planning and designing river restoration, covering general principles and case studies from a wide range of environments, and includes field measurements, mapping, interpretation, field trips to the Truckee River and streams in the Lake Tahoe Basin, and workshops on stream restoration problems faced by participants. Now in its 24th successful year, the course is held at Sagehen Creek Field Station, combining a beautiful natural setting with excellent research and facilities, such as an outdoor classroom, stream table to demonstrate channel adjustments, on-site laboratory, and Sagehen Creek, with its rich history of research in fluvial geomorphology and ecology.  Instructors are drawn from multiple disciplines and from both research and practice.
