The 10th International Symposium on Environmental Hydraulics (ISEH) has been won to Aberdeen in 2024. This will be the first time in its history that the symposium will be in the UK and to Europe since it was held in Athens in 2010. The University of Aberdeen has been selected as the venue. As Scotland's third oldest University (one of the four ancient Universities in Scotland) with immaculately preserved buildings with state-of- the-art facilities and technology; the University is the perfect venue to host the 10th ISEH. The University of Aberdeen’s Department of Engineering has also developed a strong tradition in fluid mechanics research - civil engineering hydraulics research in particular - from its early days.
Led by Professor Vladimir Nikora FRSE, FRAE, the Group today is well connected to the UK hydraulics research community and internationally through collaborative research projects, network memberships such as the UK Fluids Network and MASTS, and editorial board memberships of leading hydraulics journals (Journal of Hydraulic Research, Water Resources Research, Coastal Engineering). Aberdeen is an experienced conference destination and such prestigious event only serves to strengthen the region as a business event destination. This event is set to attract approximately 400 delegates to Aberdeen over a period of 5 days and, it is estimated that this event will contribute nearly £1 million to the local economy. With already a strong reputation in fluid mechanics research, this event further strengthen Aberdeen’s position in this sector.
