THE ROLE OF HYDROLOGY TOWARDS WATER RESOURCES SUSTAINABILITY

XXIX Nordic Hydrological Conference

8-10 August 2016

In Kaunas, Lithuania

Dear Colleagues!

Nordic Water is a conference series focused on water resources, hydrology and related sciences. The conference will bring together scientists to talk about recent trends in water research and water resources management.

The XXIX Nordic Hydrological Conference will be held at the Vytautas Magnus University, Kaunas, Lithuania. The main venue will be in the Kaunas city centre (K. Donelaičio st. 58). The conference dinner and the walking tour will all take place in the Kaunas city centre.

Kaunas has been fated to become an important historical and cultural heart of Lithuania. In 1408, Magdeburg rights were granted to the city of Kaunas by the privilege of Vytautas the Great. During the early 20th century, governed by its first Burgomaster Jonas Vileisis, Kaunas was the home of the Lithuanian Government and the capital city; a period considered by many as the golden age of the city. However, history tells us that even before this date, the city, situated at the confluence of rivers the Neris and the Nemunas, experienced many other periods of great prosperity and national importance.

Hundreds of years of cultural heritage are preserved in the historical and architectural monuments, museums, theatres, art galleries and churches of Kaunas. We are proud of the importance that Kaunas citizens have contributed towards creating a rich cultural, historical and academic basis of Lithuania.

We warmly invite you to Kaunas, Lithuania, for Nordic Water 2016 !!!
