The forty-first Italian Conference on Integrated River Basin Management (ICIRBM-Guardia  2020) will take place in Luigiane spa of Guardia Piemontese (Acquappesa, Prov. Cosenza, Italy)  co-organised by University of Calabria, Centro Studi Acquedotti e Fognature, Associazione  Idrotecnica Italiana – Sezione Calabria.

ICIRBM-Guardia Conference was first held in 1980; since then, a yearly meeting has been  organized. In this lapse of time, 41 volumes were published, edited by the Bios publishing house, with a total amount of  pages of about 24,000.

It is the most enduring event taking place in Italy in the field of river basin management. In  1980, the discipline was dealt with in a very original and inter-disciplinary way that accounted  for both physical and environmental aspects.

The organizers of the ICIRBM-Guardia Conferences have always invited researchers in the field of Hydraulics and Hydraulic Constructions, but also coming from other branches of Engineering, Architecture and Natural  Sciences, as the proceedings volumes evidence.

The annual meeting at the Luigiane Spa in Guardia Piemontese is a much awaited event for  researchers, doctorate students and professionals. It is a good opportunity to talk, stay together  and share experiences.

Through this event, Italian experts in river basin management contribute to give an answer to  the needs of safety and sustainable development that characterize many areas all over Italy.
