2019, Vienna, Austria

The 6th Biennial Symposium of the International Society for River Science (ISRS) was hosted by the Institute of Hydrobiology and Aquatic Ecosystem Management at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences Vienna (BOKU) in Vienna, Austria, 8-13 September 2019. The conference theme was “Riverine landscapes as coupled socio-ecological systems“.

The symposium emphasised research on the use and protection of water resources with a focus on highly modified riverine landscapes. It linked research at different trophic, temporal and spatial scales and bridges between ecology, geomorphology, hydrology, biogeochemistry, social sciences, environmental engineering, technology and economics. The symposium therefore served as a wide platform for the exchange of ideas and experiences between science and practice.
