Natural Channel Systems Conference 2018
University of Guelph, 23rd-25th May 2018
Sustaining Connectivity: Exploring the Importance of Connectivity in Systems, Knowledge, Practice and Policy

Announcing the Natural Channel Systems Conference 2018

At the 6th Natural Channel Conference we will explore Sustaining Connectivity – linking knowledge through generations, practice among disciplines, policy amidst practitioners, and science across the landscape. In 2018 we will take a multidisciplinary look at natural channel systems with a widened view of cause and effect, employing the knowledge of past work with present research to connect the landscape to the channel. Through this we are providing the opportunity for sharing and evolving our understanding of the importance, complexity, and interconnectedness of watercourses, and their relationship with hydrological, geomorphological, chemical and ecological processes.

The 2018 conference will provide an avenue to discuss new science, practices and academic research. The Sustaining Connectivity theme will be explored through the following sessions:

  • Collaborative Design
  • Communications
  • Economics
  • Environmental Flows
  • Innovation
  • Monitoring
  • Policy and Regulation
  • Urban Hydro-modification
  • Resilience

If there are additional session themes you would like to see discussed in 2018, please provide suggestions by completing the following form by 22nd September 2017: If there are numerous recommendations for an additional session, we will endeavor to add it to the program.

More information on the sessions and abstract submission details will be added on the Natural Channel Systems website on October 2nd.
