Since 2002, River Flow has become a major international conference in river engineering and fluvial hydraulics. It is a unique occasion to present and discuss the latest scientific researches, and to communicate with scientists, engineers, and researchers involved in areas such as river hydraulics and sediment transport.

River Flow 2018 focuses on the latest findings in the field of fluvial hydrodynamics, addressing fundamental issues related to fluid mechanics and transport of sediments and pollutants in rivers, and also more practical issues related to river morphodynamics at the reach scale: river restoration, the effect of hydraulic structures on bed morphology, flow regime and ecology, and finally to the specific hydraulic processes during extreme flood events.

Five Master Classes dedicated to graduate students and young researchers are organized and led by recognized international experts on topics in hydrodynamics, morphology and sediment transport.

Exhibitors such as IAHR and Nortek will be present during the three days of the conference. The conference is coorganized by the National Research Institute of Science and Technology for Environment and Agriculture (Irstea), INSA Lyon, Laboratory of Fluid Mechanics and Acoustics (LMFA), Compagnie Nationale du Rh^one (CNR) and Soci_et_e Hydro-technique de France (SHF).

The conference is sponsored by LyonMetropole, International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), Auvergne-Rhone-Alpes Region, Lyon University (IDEXLyon project in the frame of PIA).
