  • Non-conventional water resources (e.g.: desalination, rainwater harvesting, yellow water)
  • Experimental and computational methods in hydraulic engineering
  • Riverine and coastal engineering
  • Hydrological response to Climate Change
  • Environmental crisis and hazards (e.g.: drought scenarios, Nature Based Solutions NBSs for climate resilience systems)
  • Groundwater modelling

Keynote Speakers
