Fluvial-Geomorphic & Ecological Tools,
This five-day workshop emphasizes understanding
geomorphic process as a sound basis for planning
and designing river restoration projects and
programs. The course is in English, but draws
heavily on river restoration and management
experiences in France and elsewhere in the EU,
complemented by experiences in North America and
elsewhere. Instruction includes lectures, field
exercises, problem sets and workshops on
approaches to planning and implementing
This course will be a great chance to combine a
love for river science with wonderful food, wine,
and international connections. It will be held
the week immediately prior to the IS.Rivers

EMSAGG 2015 Conference, Delft, the Netherlands
Call for papers
European Marine Sand and Gravel Group (EMSAGG) welcomes
the submission of abstracts from colleagues interested
in presenting at the conference. The abstracts should be
about 200 words and should reflect on topics including:
• marine spatial planning (e.g. monitoring, sea bed
optimisation, marine strategy framework)
• new technologies and developments (e.g. detection of
large boulders, geophysical techniques, detection and
dealing with unexploded ordnance)
• towards sustainable sand and gravel extractions -
challenges and opportunities (e.g. social and
environmental impacts, the use of marine aggregates).
