The organizing committee of the International Symposium on the Interactions between Sediments and Water and the International Association for Sediment Water Science (IASWS) have announced registration and abstract submission are open for the 15th Symposium, which will be held in Portorož, Slovenia. The general objectives of these IASWS meetings are to:

  • promote, encourage and recognize excellence in scientific research related to sediments and their interactions with water and biota in fluvial, lacustrine and marine systems and with particular reference to problems of environmental concern
  • bring together and foster collaborative research and dialogue between earth scientists, biologists, chemists and environmental engineers whose interests pertain to sediment-water interactions in all aquatic systems

The symposium this year will be organised into five themes integrating a number of disciplines and a wide range of research environments:

  • Source, Fate and Effect of Sediments in Freshwater and Marine Ecosystems
  • Modelling the Movement of Aquatic Sediments
  • Sediment-associated Nutrient and Contaminant Processes
  • Assessing and/or Restoring Disturbed Catchments
  • Biogenic Influences on Sediment-water Interactions from the Micro to Macro Scale
