we would like to draw your attention to the forthcoming 3rd European Geosciences Union Leonardo Conference on the Hydrological Cycle:
Floods in 3D - Processes, Patterns, Predictions.
The Leonardo Conferences are complementary to the EGU General Assembly: they are focused on a specific topic and foster an intensive exchange among a limited group of participants.
The 2011 EGU Leonardo Conference will be held in Bratislava, Slovakia on 23-25 November 2011, has the ambition of looking at Floods in Three Dimensions:
* Processes: learning from the similarities and differences of basic ideas and concepts concerning the generating physical processes,
* Patterns: investigating the patterns in which floods demonstrate themselves,
* Predictions: presenting predictive approaches helping mankind to cope with them.
Convenors of the sessions:
Processes: G. di Baldassare, M. Borga, A. Montanari, R. Moussa
Patterns: A. Castellarin, P. Claps, T. Kjeldsen, R. Merz
Predictions: G.T. Aronica, H. Madsen, B. Merz, R.J. Moore
The deadline for call for contributions (both oral and poster) and the submission of abstracts was extended until July 31, 2011. Authors will be notified of acceptance by the 1st of September 2011, when the registration will also start.
For further information on the conference, detailed description of the conference sessions and submission rules please visit the conference website <http://www.eguleonardo2011.flood.sk/
We cordially invite those of you who are interested in floods to consider participating in this years event. Please, feel free to forward this information to your colleagues.
Apologies for cross postings.
