Abstract submissions and earlybird registrations open for 18th International Riversymposium

This year’s Riversymposium has an overarching theme of 'Healthy Rivers - Healthy Economies', with presentations from over 20 expert keynote speakers from around the world.

The 18th International Riversymposium will address global hot topics such as connecting mining, environment and society and market-based approaches to water scarcity, as well as topics of interest to Australia and Queensland such as  protecting the Great Barrier Reef and living with flooding in urban centres.

Renowned for its sub-tropical climate, Brisbane provides a breathtaking setting for the Riversymposium, with the venue situated just a short walk from the river. Post-conference tours will also be offered for Brisbane City and surrounds as well as the world-famous Great Barrier Reef.

Earlybird registrations

Register now for the special earlybird rate of $895 (available until 30 June 2015).



A list of themes and sub-themes can be found on the Riversymposium website, catering to all aspects of river protection, sustainable management, adaptation and restoration at all scales.

Abstracts can be submitted in three different categories - oral/group presentations, posters, or posters with five minute 'speed talks'. This last category was introduced in 2014 and offers the opportunity to be included in the conference program without giving a full 15-20 minute presentation.

Abstracts will be evaluated by the program committee and selected based on aspects such as relevance to the theme, audience appeal, originality and presentation ability.

Submit an abstract now. Abstract submissions close on Monday 20 April 2015.
