The International Symposium on River Sedimentation is a triennial conference series initiated in 1980 by the Chinese Hydraulic Engineering Society (CHES) with the support of  UNESCO. Since its foundation, the International Research and Training Center on Erosion and Sedimentation (IRTCES) in Beijing has served as the permanent secretariat of ISRS. Thirteen such symposia have been successfully held in Beijing, Nanjing, Jackson, Beijing, Karlsruhe, New Delhi, Hong Kong, Cairo, Yichang, Moscow, Stellenbosch, Kyoto and Stuttgart respectively. The World Association for Sedimentation and Erosion Research (WASER) was inaugurated at the 9th ISRS in 2004 with its Secretariat located in the IRTCES, and the ISRS has become the official Symposium of WASER since then.

The objective of ISRS is to provide an unique platform for researchers from all over the world with interest in the field of sediment and its management to share and discuss latest scientific ideas and achievements. This symposium, which will be held on September 16-19, 2019 in Chengdu, China will be the 14th International Symposium on River Sedimentation, and the host organization will be Sichuan University.
