FLOODrisk2020 important update

      | More

Dear all,

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.

We hope to be able to welcome you online for the FLOODrisk2020 conference that will take place from 21st to 25th June 2021. Detailed information on the programme for this virtual conference and how to gain access and participate in the conference will be published in the new year.

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.

In the meantime, we would like to wish you and your family a healthy and prosperous new year for 2021.

Best regards,

The FLOODrisk2020 Local Organising Committee

FLOODrisk2020 COVID-19 update

      | More

Dear All,

As the COVID-19 crisis continues to affect many people and countries around the world, we continue to review all possibilities for delivering the FLOODrisk2020 conference. 

As you know we have already had to delay the conference from its original date in September 2020, to the new dates from 21st to 25th June 2021. Current restrictions in Europe and in particular in Budapest, Hungary, and the real possibility that those, or a version of those, restrictions will continue well into the first half of 2021, means we must, at least, review alternatives for hosting our conference.

We are currently looking at a number of options for this, from hosting the conference online to delaying the conference once more, and other options.

We ask kindly for your patience whilst we consider all these options. We will be in touch as quickly as possible with more detailed information as to future plans for the conference. We will be in touch again by 18th December 2020 with our decision on the future of the FLOODrisk2020 conference. All key deadlines, including the notification of acceptance and full paper submission opening, are in the meantime put on hold.

In the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any question.

Best regards

The FLOODrisk2020 organising committee.

We would like to remind you all that the call for abstracts for the 4th European Conference on Flood Risk Management, that will take place in Budapest will close on 14th September 2020.

FLOODrisk2020 is committed to attract, coach and listen to the next generation of scientists and practitioners who will future-proof our research methods and help to improve our flood risk management practice in order to better cope with deep uncertainty and therefore the 4th conference will focus on the issue of Science and practice for an uncertain future.

Happy New Year for 2020

      | More

We would like to send you all our best wishes for this new year 2020. We are excited that this year will make the 4th edition of the European Conference on Flood Risk Management and look forward to seeing you in Budapest from 31st August to 4th September 2020. 

Registration will open very shortly, but in the mean time don't forget that you are able to support the conference whilst promoting your business to an estimated 500 delegates from over 30 different countries (based on the 2012 and 2016 attendance) . From Gold to Bronze packages, to the possibility of renting an exhibition space within the historical building of BME University to the possibility of supporting the conference dinner, the ice breaker or the delegates bags, each package comes with its own unique benefits.

To find out more please visit the website on https://floodrisk2020.net/sponsors--exhibitors/ or contact us on sponsor@floodrisk2020.net. 

Announcing papers and posters

      | More

We are very pleased to announce that after a very thorough review of all of the abstracts submitted by our scientific committee, we have accepted 144 papers for oral presentation and 96 papers for poster presentation and all authors should by now have been informed.

This will allow us to reduce our programme to include 5 parallel sessions instead of the usual 6, thus following the recommendations given to us during the last conferences both in Lyon and previously in Rotterdam. 

We are of course once again working on including some amazingly interesting and insightful special sessions in the programme as these attracted much enthusiasm and interest in the past. We will keep you informed of progress on the programme for these special sessions in due course.

The registration system will be opened shortly, so watch this space for information on this. 

We are still looking for sponsors and exhibitors to support the conference and make it even more interesting for our participants so don't hesitate to visit our website on www.floodrisk2020.net/sponsors--exhibitors/ for more information on this or contact us
