It is finally happening! Soon the community will meet in Vienna and Montpellier and discuss the scientific and operational progress in hydrological forecasting.
If you are planning to go and want to meet HEPEX and EC-HEPEX people, here are some tips on the sessions that might interest you.
If unfortunately you cannot be there in person, do not worry since we are now in the era of hybrid events. You can simply register and attend the sessions online. Just browse the programme of these sessions following the links below and learn more about the different work that is going to be presented.
The European Geosciences Union (EGU) 2022 General Assembly
The EGU 2022 Annual General Assembly will take place from 23–27 May 2022 in Vienna.
The sessions of the sub-division on Hydrological Forecasting (HS4) focus on the following topics:
- Forecasting hydrological extremes: (flash) floods, droughts and water scarcity
- Improving and quantifying forecasting methodologies and uncertainties
- Operational and impact forecasting, preparedness and decision making
All HS4 sessions received the EDI logo supporting the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion. The sessions are nicely spread over the week; start on Monday 23rd and finish on Thursday 26th May. Prior to highlighting the relevant sessions, we would like to draw your attention into:
The social HEPEX evening will be again a joint event with various research projects. It is scheduled for Wednesday (25 May) at 20.00 at the Melker Stiftskeller (Schottengasse 3, 1010 Wien, Austria) restaurant. If you want to join it, please register HERE before Wednesday 20 May. The reservation is for 50 people, so “first-come first-served”!

Thursday is last for hydrological forecasting but not least…
and includes the Henry Darcy Medal Lecture & HS Division Outstanding ECS Award Lecture
There are many more exciting sessions during the week! View the rest of the programme here and enjoy the conference! Also, remember to get the EGU app and include the sessions and meetings in your personal programme!
The International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS) 2022 Assembly
The IAHS 2022 Scientific Assembly will take place from 29 May – 3 June 2022 in Montpellier. With 650 submitted abstracts, the Assembly is expected to be great for our community.
We are organising a social HEPEX – EC-HEPEX evening at IAHS too. It is scheduled for Tuesday (31 May) at 20.00 at the Les Bains (6 Rue Richelieu, 34000 Montpellier) restaurant.
