This is a reminder that papers for next year’s National Conference on Hydraulics in Civil Engineering are due on 2 December 2013. I would urge you to consider submitting a paper to this important event on the calendar for the hydraulic engineering community. Please see below for more information, and feel free to forward this message to others.

The 5th International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures and the 11th National Conference on Hydraulics in Civil Engineering will be held in Brisbane, Australia on 25–27 June 2014. The symposium has the theme of “Hydraulic Structures and Society – Engineering Challenges and Extremes”, and will focus on the role of hydraulic structures in meeting the challenge of extreme events while addressing the requirements imposed by our growing population, the environment, agriculture, industry, and tourism for current and future generations.  More information.

Keynote lectures will include:

Scour at Hydraulic Structures
Professor Bruce MELVILLE, University of Auckland, New Zealand
