Welcome to the 12th International Symposium on Ecohydraulics (ISE 2018), which will be held during August 19-24, 2018 in Tokyo, Japan. The symposium is jointly convened by the International Association for Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research (IAHR), and the International Society for River Science (ISRS). ISE 2018 brings together multi-disciplinary communities of researchers and professionals, as well as old and new friends from all over the world, in a relaxed atmosphere.

The objectives of ISE 2018 are to combine outstanding science and management of aquatic biota, e-flows, lake and river restoration, to produce innovation for environmental issues of our surrounding water in a rapidly changing world, and to share the knowledge and views of water related disaster protection.

The symposium will be held at a very convenient location in the Tokyo city center. The ISE 2018 participants will experience the joy of roaming around one of the most renovated cities in the world, just two years prior to the Olympic Games. The venue is Nihon University, located at a 15-minute walk from the Imperial Palace. All traditional sightseeing spots of Tokyo are easily accessible by frequent local trains from the symposium venue.

We are confident that you will enjoy several days of excitement and discovery, make new friends and business partners, and experience a magnificent feel of friendliness and traditional spirit of Japan.

Call for special session

Special sessions will be organized in parallel to the regular sessions. The goal of special sessions is to provide a focused discussion of new research topics and innovative applications within the scope of the symposium. Each special session will consist of 6, 12, 18 or 24 presentations.

A special session proposal should include the following items:
1.Title of the special session
2.A synopsis of the special session (maximum 200 words)
3.4-6 representative keywords for the theme of the special session
4.Organizer’s name, affiliation, and contact information
5.Topics of interest

Special session proposals will be evaluated based on the timeliness and uniqueness of the topic as well as qualifications of the proposers. After review, a decision on the proposed special session will be sent to the proposers within 2 weeks. Provisionally accepted special sessions will be listed on the symposium website. However, it is possible that an accepted proposal will be combined with another one to avoid multiple special sessions covering a similar topic.

All special session abstracts will be reviewed with the same criteria as regular session abstracts. During abstract submission, the authors will be required to specify which session they are submitting their abstract to.


Proposals should be sent via e-mail in MS-Word or PDF format to the special session chair:
Shinji Fukuda <>
All proposals should be submitted by June 9th, 2017. Early proposals are highly encouraged.
Please feel free to address any question or suggestion you might have to the special session chair.
