Sustainable Use and Management of Soil,

Sediment and Water Resources

14th International Conference | 26–30 June 2017 | Lyon, France | SAVE THE DATE

Dear friends and colleagues,

The 14th International AquaConSoil Conference will focus on sustainable use and management of soil, sediment and water resources.

AquaConSoil2017 will take place in the Convention Centre in Lyon, classed as a UNESCO world heritage site – will host delegates from research institutes and universities, governmental and consultant organisations and from industry.

AquaConSoil is organized by Deltares (NL), in cooperation with the local French consortium of scientists, policy makers, planners and consultants coordinated by BRGM.

Any news about the conference will also be announced via the AquaConSoil LinkedIn-group.

We are looking forward to welcome you in Lyon!

The AquaConSoil program will offer Thematic Lecture Sessions, Poster Sessions, Special Sessions, Exhibition, Technical Tours, Courses, and a Matchmaking event.

AquaConSoil 2017 provides great opportunities for scientists, companies and policy makers to extend and enforce their network, start new cooperation activities and be informed of and inspired by the latest sediment and (ground)water resources.
