The XIth Scientific Assembly of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS 2022) will take place in Montpellier (France) from 29 May to 3 June 2022.

As always, the objective of this important event will be to provide an opportunity to communicate, exchange and project on all major topics in the hydrological sciences within the framework of sessions organized by all IAHS Commissions and Working Groups. In the context of the multiple instabilities that prevail today, the task is immense and yet scientists have a duty to provide elements of answers and solutions to the challenges facing us in the coming years. In this respect, the diversity and quality of the expected participants is the guarantee of a productive and high-level Assembly.

“IAHS 2022” in Montpellier will also be an opportunity to make a first assessment of the Panta Rhei initiative (2013-2022) which deals with changes in hydrology and society. The progress of the UPH initiative, "Unsolved Problems in Hydrology", established in 2017-2019, will be another highlight of this Assembly.

“IAHS 2022” will also celebrate IAHS's 100th anniversary year! It will provide an opportunity for both retrospective and prospective synthesis and debate on the discipline and its interfaces with other scientific fields and societal challenges.
This event will be accompanied throughout this week by many other "water-related" events for scientists, the general public and schoolchildren.

Montpellier is a beautiful old city in the south of France. Close to the Mediterranean Sea, it offers an exceptional setting for visits full of history. But it is also a hub for visiting the surrounding area and the hinterland which abounds in incomparable natural and environmental treasures, traditions linked to the Languedoc culture, unique wine-growing areas and traces of a Gallo-Roman past that is still very much alive.

“IAHS 2022” in Montpellier, a university created in 1289, a stronghold of scientific research in general and hydrology in particular (the UNESCO International Water Centre "ICIREWARD" is now located there), will undoubtedly be a major event and an important marker for the water sciences community.

From 29 May to 3 June 2022, join us in Montpellier for “IAHS 2022”!
