The forty-second Italian Conference on Integrated River Basin Management (ICIRBM – 2021) will take place at the University of Calabria (Arcavacata di Rende, CS, Italy) co-organised by 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 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.
