NCR is the leading cooperative alliance between all major Dutch institutes for river studies. We integrate knowledge, facilitate discussion and promote excellent science.

RCEM Sessions

Dear all, We are happy to announce that, as an alternative to our biennial River, Coastal and Estuarine Morphodynamics (RCEM) Meeting, we will host three virtual RCEM Zoom sessions this year:

  • 30 Nov 2021 (16:00-19:00 CET) "System response to anthropogenic impact and climate change" Astrid Blom, Laura Stancanelli & Shelby Marie Ahrendt, contact
  • 2 Dec 2021 (8:30-12:00 CET)  "Ecomorphodynamics" Nunzio Siviglia, Stefano Lanzoni & Guido Zolezzi, contact
  • 9 Dec 2021 (16:00-19:00 CET)  “Morphodynamics and sediment transport"Volker Weitbrecht & Cristina Rachelly, contact (Volker)
The goal is to provide a cross-cutting forum for scientific discussion in the spirit of RCEM (i.e., using combinations of theoretical, observational, experimental and modelling approaches), especially targeted at young researchers (graduate, PhD students, early-career post docs). We have different time slots between sessions to allow people from different parts of the globe to attend. The sessions will be recorded, unless a speaker requests otherwise. This will allow folks who are in time zones that don’t permit live attendance to view talks post session. Each session comprises one keynote presentation (to be announced) and a limited number of shorter presentations.


Please express your interest in giving a short presentation by sending a max 200-word abstract through this form: In the selection of presentations, we will aim for diversity in the speaker list and a balanced contribution from the major RCEM research fields (river - coast - estuary). The deadline for abstract submission is Monday 8 November 2021.


Please register to attend the sessions here: You will receive a calendar invite with a Zoom link (and password). The full program for the 3 sessions will be announced around 20 November, 2021.

We hope you will be able to join!

All the best, the RCEM team Astrid Blom Associate Professor - River Engineering Coordinator MSc track Hydraulic Engineering
