85th Annual Meeting in Prague, Czech Repblic, 3-7 July, 2017

The region of Czech Republic has a very long history in dam development. Since the Middle Age, dams were built to ensure water supply and power. Some of the historical reservoirs are still operated today and have become natural reserves.

The participants of the 85th Annual Meeting in Prague will have the chance to discuss in the Symposium on July 5 the topic of “Knowledge based Dam Engineering”. Furthermore, current issues will be addressed in several special workshops including the workshops of the ICOLD technical committees. The outcomes of the symposium and the workshops will without doubt contribute to the governing long-term mission of ICOLD which is “Better dams for a better world”.
