The 15th International Symposium on Ecohydraulics and Fish Passage (ISE-FP 2024) will be held in Québec City from May 5 to 9, 2024 at the Hôtel le Concorde Québec.

This joint event aims to foster discussions on research and management of aquatic ecosystems, and how their connectivity and processes are being impacted under climate change. We expect to receive abstracts from all over the world for an exciting scientific program, focusing on interdisciplinary research and applications, including modeling of hydraulics, hydrology, and ecology.

Our goal is to provide a space for practitioners and researchers to exchange ideas and present state-of-the-art scientific advances on ecohydraulics and fish passage through a range of exciting thematics: ecohydraulics modeling, stream restoration, fish biology, bioengineering, and more! The conference will lead to special issues in peer-reviewed journals (e.g., Canadian Water Resources Journal special issue on Advances in Ecohydraulics, Journal of Ecohydraulics).

The conference will start on Sunday with selected workshops on thematics linked to the ecohydraulics and fish passage areas, as well as an EcoENet workshop targeting students and young professionals. The conference also provides the opportunity to do half day technical tours and excursions featuring ecohydraulics and fish passage applications while enjoying Québec’s nature.

Details on the abstract submission and other information to prepare your trip coming soon!

We are looking forward to welcoming you to Québec City!
