China’s water-related infrastructure has developed by leaps and bounds leading to further advances in scientific and technical research. Consequently, the role of sediment research is becoming more challenging than ever before. In the midst of these advances, the International Symposium on River Sedimentation (ISRS) will return to China after the successful Yichang Symposium 14 years ago.  

On behalf of the 14th ISRS Organizers, we would like to warmly invite you to join us in Chengdu, China for the 14th International Symposium on River Sedimentation (14th ISRS). The Symposium will be held with the theme of “Integrated Sediment Management in Rivers and Coasts”.   

We look forward to welcoming you to Chengdu in September 2019 and we are confident that this symposium will be one of the most successful ones in the ISRS series.
