21 June - 25 June 2021, Virtual Conference

4th European Conference on Flood Risk Management

Science and practice for an uncertain future

COVID-19 Announcement

After much deliberation and following the latest international situation with regards to COVID19, we have the pleasure to announce that we will be conducting the FLOODrisk2020 European Conference on Flood Risk Management from 21st to 25th June 2021 entirely virtually. We have therefore decided to postpone the Budapest conference to sometime in 2024, specific dates for this conference will be announced in due time.

Web-based gateway

The online conference will centre around a web-based gateway that will give delegates access to virtual rooms where they will be able to view video or audio presentations of the papers and posters, submit questions and attend live question and answer sessions with oral presentation authors.

Virtual exhibition

Access will also be granted to a virtual exhibition hall where partners, sponsors and exhibitors will be able to publish posters, brochures, video presentation and access live chat with delegates from two weeks prior to the conference, throughout the conference and after the conference. A programme of pre-recorded presentations and live question and answer sessions will also be organised for all exhibitors to encourage discussions with delegates.

Enabling virtual meetings and interaction

The web gateway will also include a networking area enabling delegates to contact their peers via a messaging service. Delegates would also be able to pitch ideas, prior to the event and invite delegates to attend live pitching sessions online during the conference.

Instructions to authors

All authors will be required to upload a video or audio presentation of their paper or poster no later than 2 weeks prior to the conference opening date when access to all presentations will be opened for all delegates. This should ensure that delegates have ample time to view presentations and submit their questions ahead of the live question and answer and discussion sessions, a programme of which will be published in due course. Access to videos/audios will remain open throughout the duration of the conference and after the conference.

We will provide help for all presenters on how to record a video or audio presentation and upload it to the web gateway.

We will strive to make the process of participating in this virtual conference as easy as possible, as enjoyable as possible and as rewarding as possible for all involved. 

For those of you who have already registered and paid to attend the conference, please note that you will receive a credit note for the registration fee as well as a new invoice for registration to attend the online event in January once the new pricing structure has been established.
