Abstract Submission > Sub-topics

Each abstract must refer to one dominant sub-topic for the reviewing process.

This information will be requested when submitting.


Topic 1: Approaches to modeling and management of eco-hydrological processes

  • 1.1 Hydrological dimension of catchment– identification of potential threats and opportunities for a sustainable development.
  • 1.2 Shaping of the catchment ecological structure for ecosystem potential enhancement ─ biological productivity and biodiversity
  • 1.3 Ecohydrology system solution and ecological engineering for the enhancement of water and ecosystem resilience and ecosystem services
  • 1.4 Urban Ecohydrology – storm water purification and retention in the city landscape, potential for improvement of health and quality of life
  • 1.5 Ecohydrological regulation for sustaining and restoring continental to coastal connectivity and ecosystem functioning including groundwater ecosystems management and   hydrogeology of groundwater wetlands

Topic 2: Methods and models for the determination of environmental flows in rivers and estuaries

  • 2.1 Longitudinal and lateral connectivity for sediment erosion, transfer and deposition, as a support for sustainable aquatic and riparian ecosystem health
  • 2.2 Reach vs. catchment applications
  • 2.3 Potential and limits of the natural flow paradigm
  • 2.4 Integration all aspects of ecosystem functioning
  • 2.5 Applications in particular river types (eg mountain streams, braided rivers, intermittent rivers, channelized rivers)
  • 2.6 Aquatic communities to evaluate environmental flows relevance
  • 2.7 Environmental flows assessment tools & strategies

Topic 3: Social and economic values of water-related ecosystem services

  • 3.1 Monetary and non-monetary approaches for the evaluation of water-related ecosystem services. Proposals relating to non-monetary approaches are especially welcome
  • 3.2 Stakeholder's perceptions of water related ecosystem services
  • 3.3 Use of ecosystem service assessment in decision making - collection of evidence
  • 3.4 Contributions of the ecosystem services approach to international and European regulations for water management
  • 3.5 Water related ecosystem services – case studies in the urban and rural contexts

Topic 4: Environmental monitoring and measuring of water-related natural processes

  • 4.1 Physical-chemical & biological sensors
  • 4.2 Nanotechnology and bio-nanotechnology for water monitoring
  • 4.3 Microbiological monitoring (blooming, pathogens and toxins) and health risk
  • 4.4 Biomarkers & bio-logging
  • 4.5 Real Time monitoring & smart monitoring
  • 4.6 Data processing, modelling and hot spot mapping
