Abstracts are invited on the themes listed or related topics. Please email abstracts to: hydro2021@hydropower-dams.com. A short CV of each author (and any co-authors) must be included.

Your abstract should be in Word, up to 800 words long, in English, and should summarize precisely the scope and content of the proposed paper. In the case of any project described, please mention its current status and date of completion. It would be helpful to suggest the topic to which your paper is best suited. Please incorporate the author’s name in the file name of the abstract. It is helpful to send a PDF in addition to the Word file.

Please note that abstracts should only be submitted if the author would be able to attend the conference (or send a repres­entative). Please obtain any necessary clear­ance, and check your availability to attend, before submitting the abstract. If your paper is accepted, you will be asked to sign a form confirming your intention to attend; it is essential that we receive this undertaking before allocating time for an oral pres­entation. If you have had a paper accepted in the past, and did not attend to present it, you may be asked to register before acceptance of your paper for HYDRO 2021 can be confirmed. Speakers will be eligible for reduced registration fees, which will include meals and social events during the conference. In the case of speakers from the least developed countries, in some circumstances, we may be able to secure financial support to cover fees, but it is essential that we know this at the time when the abstract is submitted. The final deadline for receipt of abstracts is 31 March 2021. However, it is useful to receive submissions as early as possible. Authors will be notified in June 2021 whether or not their paper has been accepted for presentation (or alternatively for publication only on the USB stick).

Abstracts will generally be reviewed by two or more experts on our International Steering Committee, and you may be asked to modify some aspects of your proposed paper. As this review process takes some time, we urge you to submit abstracts promptly (and if possible, well before the deadline). Full papers will be required by 4 September 2021, and format guidelines will be sent to all authors whose papers are accepted. A PDF and Word document of each final paper will be required.

In addition to submitting an abstract, if you would like to suggest a topic for a panel discussion, workshop, or pre-event training session, please feel free to contact us, preferably before the end of January.
