We are pleased to announce the publication of the detailed programme for the FLOODrisk2020 virtual conference. You can find the programme on page hub.floodrisk2020.net/programme/ of the website.

Parallel Sessions: 

You will have noticed that each session, whether plenary or parallel, includes the list of papers followed by a timeslot of 30 minutes for live Question and Answer sessions. All papers, with the exception of those that will be presented in the opening and closing ceremonies, will be pre-recorded and available to view in video or audio format and in PDF format from the 8th June 2021. There is also sufficient time allocated in the programme for participants to visualise all presentations before each Q&A session.

We have staggered the Question and Answer sessions so as to allow delegates to participate in as many live Q&A sessions as possible. You will be able to add the timeslots for the Q&A sessions that you wish to participate in to a personalised calendar to build your own personal conference timetable.

Poster sessions have also been added to the relevant parallel sessions. Each paper video/audio presentations will last between 10 to 12 minutes with poster presentations lasting 3 to 5 minutes. All authors, both paper and poster presenters, will then participate in the live Question and Answer session that will be chaired and co-chaired by members of the scientific and organising committee (to be announced shortly).

Participants will be asked to submit questions in advance if possible, but there will also be opportunities for participants to ask questions during the live Q&A sessions.

Plenary Sessions:

The opening ceremony will take place virtually and live on Tuesday 22 June 2021 from 9:30 to 10:00 CET. It will be followed by live presentations by our sponsors. 

The second and third plenary sessions will include pre-recorded video/audio presentations and a 30-minute Question and Answer session.

The closing ceremony will take place live on Thursday 24 June 2021 from 16:00 to 17:30 CET. 

Exhibitor Sessions:

In addition to the presentations by Sponsors that will follow the live opening ceremony, there will also be a Session on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 12:30 and 13:30 CET for Exhibitors to present their organisations and projects.

Special Sessions:

There are also 11 Special Sessions taking place throughout the 3 days of the virtual conference. Special sessions are set up to address a particular challenge in flood risk management through a more interactive format – often through a workshop style more than a presentation approach. The nature of a special session is such that a communicable outcome is aimed for. The topics and leads are indicated in the program. More information on the content and organisation of each of these special sessions will be published shortly.
