The meeting develops fundamental and applied aspects of freshwater science as well as more local topics.

There are nearly 450 scientific communications presented during one week, organized in 8 parallel sessions of oral presentations and 2 sessions of poster presentations. Eight “keynote speakers” open the sessions with plenary lectures. A “public” conference is organized on Wednesday evening, on the theme of water management.
