Programme OVERVIEW

The programme of Novatech 2019 will be organised around the following principles:

  • 3 conference days from Tuesday 2 to Thursday 4 July, with:
    • An opening plenary session with prestigious guests;
    • four concurrent sessions of conferences, allowing for more than 150 oral presentations. The conference programme will be built upon the paper proposals following the call for papers launched in September 2018. A preliminary programme will be available in March 2019.
    • Novatech Awards to enhance public projects and policies integrating stormwater management: the finalists will present their project and strategies on Wednesday 3 July. The winners will be rewarded by the jury on Wednesday evening during a special ceremony.
    • Poster exhibitions are also an integral part of Novatech and interactive workshops will complete the programme.
  • Specialised workshop on Monday 1 July organised by international IWA/IAHR working groups;
  • A day for technical tours on Friday 5 July, 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.

There will be casual moments during these 4 days (cocktail, lunches, gala dinner), allowing for informal exchanges between participants.
