+++ COVID-19 Update +++

Dear friends of the World’s Large Rivers Conference,

In the context of the evolving global situation regarding COVID-19 we have been forced to take the decision to postpone the 4th World’s Large Rivers Conference by one year to 2nd – 6th of August 2021.

The health and safety of our attendees is of utmost importance to us and hence we believe that this decision is the best solution for our event. Further, we believe that this step is necessary to support the worldwide efforts of containing and fighting the pandemic.

Nevertheless, the preparations for the 4th World Large Rivers Conference in Moscow 2021 are continuing full steam ahead. All important dates (abstract submission, registration, technical tours…) will be shifted by one year. All submitted abstracts remain accepted and all registrations will be valid for 2021.

We hope that all of you are well and that COVID-19 has not impacted too greatly on the people you know nor on your activities.

Last but not least, we would like to thank all the participants, authors and colleagues for their support and warm encouragement in this difficult situation.

Please continue to follow us on our
website and do not hesitate to contact us at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it if you have any questions.

With the best wishes and stay healthy,
