Welcome to the International Conference on the Status and Future of the World’s Large Rivers website!

Dear friends of the World’s Large Rivers Conference,


In the context of the ongoing global situation regarding COVID-19 we have made the decision to carry out the 4th World’s Large Rivers Conference as a

hybrid event from 3rd – 6th of August 2021


This means that the conference can be attended either physically on-site or virtually online. Since the health and safety of our attendees is of utmost importance to us, we believe that this solution guarantees that every participant can attend the way he or she wants.



We would like to thank all the participants, authors and colleagues for their support and warm encouragement during the last year and we are looking so much forward to seeing you at the conference in August!



With the best wishes and stay healthy,


Helmut Habersack

Chair of International Scientific Committee (ISC)


Nikolay Kasimov, Sergey Dobroliubov, Natalia Frolova & Sergey Chalov

Co-Chairs of Local Organizing Committee (LOC)
