HydroEco2015 Vienna, Austria, 13-16 April 2015
REMINDER: PLEASE CONSIDER TO SUBMIT ABSTRACT to HydroEco2015 5th International Multidisciplinary Conference on HYDROLOGY and ECOLOGY: Advances in Monitoring, Predicting and Managing Hydroecological Processes
5th International Multidisciplinary Conference on HYDROLOGY and ECOLOGY: Advances in Monitoring, Predicting and Managing Hydroecological Processes Vienna, Austria, 13-16 April 2015 Abstracts are due by 4 September 2014, via http://web.natur.cuni.cz/hydroeco2015/index.php?id=6. More information is on http://web.natur.cuni.cz/hydroeco2015/ Jointly convened by · Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (BOKU), University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna · International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) · Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic Scope and Objectives The aim of this fifth HydroEco conference * after the four previous meetings, in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Czech Republic in 2006, in Vienna in Austria in 2009 and 2011, and in Rennes in France in 2013 * is fourfold: i) to present new findings and approaches on interactions between hydrology and ecology, ii) to promote interdisciplinary interactions on water related issues between hydrology, hydrogeology, biogeochemistry, microbial ecology and ecology iii) to explore advances in monitoring, modelling and predicting dynamics of hydroecological processes, and iv) to discuss management approaches and applications to tackle environmental issues, including engineering measures for ecosystem preservation and restoration of ecologically valuable environments. To address the relevant issues, the conference aims to bring together experts from different disciplines such as hydrologists (groundwater, surface water), ecologists, biologists, subsurface microbiologists, environmental biogeochemists, eco-technologists, geomorphologists, hydraulic engineers, forest managers, nature reserve managers, regional and landscape planners, as well as experts from governmental institutions. The unifying theme is the interaction between groundwater and (or) /surface water and ecological systems. A typical example is the hyporheic zone in riparian areas, where the ecological system interacts with water and chemical flows between surface water, groundwater and unsaturated soil zone.
