Programme OVERVIEW

The conference will take place from Tuesday 28th to Thursday 30th June and will be followed, on Friday 1st July, by the workshops and technical tours. The 2016 programme will be organised a little differently due to the Euro 2016 football tournament. The programme of Novatech 2016 will be organised around the following principles:

  • INSA Lyon3 conference days from Tuesday 28 to Thursday 30 June, at the INSA Lyon - France:
    • an opening plenary session with prestigious guests;
    • 4 concurrent sessions of conference, allowing for 143 oral presentations. Poster exhibitions are also an integral part of Novatech, with a competition for the "best poster" and a Best Poster Awards on the Thursday.
    • Novatech Awards 2016 to enhance public projects and policies integrating stormwater management: the 8 finalists will present their project and strategies on Wednesday 29 June. The winners will be rewarded by the jury on Wednesday evening during a special ceremony.
    • 6 interactive sessions : benefit from the presence of experts at Novatech to meet them, ask them questions and liaise with them.
  • Friday 1 July morning:
    • technical tours enabling delegates to discover remarkable urban planning projects in Lyon and its region, as well as experimental catchment areas of the Field Observatory for Urban Water Management (OTHU).
    • specialised workshops organised by various working groups (notably of the IWA/IAHR joint committee)

Casual moments are also part of these 4 days: the welcome cocktail on Monday 27 June (5.30pm), lunches on site, the gala dinner on Wednesday 29 June at the 'Terrasses du Parc', allowing for informal exchanges between participants.
A specific programme is also organised for accompanying persons.
