Dear Colleagues and Friends,
On behalf of the Specialist Group on Lake and Reservoir Management (L&RM), International Water Association (IWA), I cordially invited you to join this important even for water professionals, The 4th IWA Symposium on Lake and Reservoir Management, to be held in Shanghai in May 22-26, 2017.
The IWA Specialist Group on L&RM focuses on the integrated and sustainable management of lakes and reservoirs, taking an interdisciplinary approach that includes fluid dynamics, biogeochemistry, microbiology, aquatic biology and ecology. The symposium will focus on all aspects of lake and reservoir management, including: 1) advanced instrumentation and techniques for water quality monitoring; 2) in-situ control strategies to remove nutrients and contaminants, and to diminish the release of greenhouse gases; 3) best practices for the management of cyanobacteria and algae; 4) in-reservoir water quality management strategies; 5) understanding the impacts of climate change; 6) employing hydrodynamic and water quality models to facilitate understanding and optimize operations; and 7) actively integrating reservoir management and water treatment.
The IWA L&RM SG has co-organized three very successful symposia in 2009 (National Cheng Kung University), 2011 (University of Granada), and 2015 (Virginia Tech). In these three symposia, we had high-quality presentations, vivid discussions, and memorable social and technical activities. These symposia have become an excellent platform for water professionals to share and exchange their ideas, findings, and research outcomes in L&RM. In 2017, the symposium will be held in beautiful Shanghai and co-organized by the Research Center for Eco-Environment Studies of the Chinese Academy of Science and the National Engineering Research Center of Urban Water Resources. This will be another great opportunity for all of us to learn more about L&RM science and technology, to know more L&RM professionals, and to enjoy the modern city of Shanghai!
Please join us in Shanghai!
Chair, IWA Specialist Group on Lake and Reservoir Management
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The Yangtze River originates from Geladaindong Peak of Tanggula Mountains and nurtures her last little “daughter”-Qingcaosha before emptying into the blue ocean. “Inclusiveness, Excellence, Open-mindedness, Humility” is the urban spirit of Shanghai and also the spiritual power sustaining Qingcaosha Water Source Project. However, like problems facing many water source lakes and reservoirs in the world, managing a 66-km2 estuary reservoir that is 10 times the size of the West Lake of Hangzhou requires collective efforts of scholars, scientists, engineers, operating experts and relating policymakers worldwide to work out effective countermeasures against saltwater intrusion, pollution on the upper reaches, climate change, eutrophication, etc. As the president of the organizing committee, I sincerely invite you to attend the conference scheduled to be held in the “Oriental Pearl” Shanghai and enjoy amazing views of Qingcaosha Reservoir, the world’s biggest estuary raw water reservoir that avoids saltwater and stores freshwater. We expect to see you in Shanghai in May 2017.
