Hydrological Forecasting at EGU 2018: time to write your abstract

You can contribute to advance hydrological predictions and forecasting systems through the presentation of your recent scientific developments, applications and approaches in the operation of hydrologic forecasting systems at the EGU Assembly in 2018.

Why should I go to EGU next year?

  1. Vienna is a beautiful city
  2. We all have a good time in the PICO and Poster sessions
  3. Hepexers always go out and it can be a lot of fun
  4. The oral sessions are a great opportunity to communicate my work
  5. I don’t know, but something tells me I should be there


This year, the sub-division on Hydrological Forecasting, under the umbrella of the Division on Hydrological Sciences, is organizing seven sessions and co-organizing another two. Abstract submission is open until 10 January 2018, 13:00 CET:
