Eleventh International Symposium on
Water Management and Hydraulic Engineering
WMHE 2009 is the Eleventh International Symposium in the field of Water Management and Hydraulic Engineering. The meetings provide a unique forum for presentation and discussion of recent work on different aspects of water and environmental management, including physical sciences and modelling.
The aim of the conference is to encourage and facilitate the interdisciplinary communication between scientists, engineers and professionals working in water management and hydraulic engineering. It considers both, surface and ground waters based on a basin wide approach. This conference contributes to these goals by inviting the experts from Central Europe that are the members of EU as well as the experts from the South-East-Europe countries, which are not yet member states. The main idea is to exchange experiences in the field of water management and hydraulic engineering including aspects of ecosystems and sustainable development.
This successful series started in 1976 as a bilateral activity between the University of Gdańsk (Poland) and the University of Zagreb (Croatia). Since 1998 participants from the University of Technology in Bratislava (Slovakia), University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius in Skopje (Macedonia), and the BOKU University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences in Vienna (Austria), contribute regularly to this two-annual conference series.
Now it is for the first time that the Faculty of Civil Engineering in Skopje, which is integrated into the University of Ss. Cyril and Methodius, is organizing this conference in Ohrid, in the Western part of Macedonia.
