A considerable amount of interdisciplinary research has been developed at the interface between hydrology and ecology during the last decade. The increasing number of peer-reviewed papers on the topic demonstrates the vitality of this theme. This interest in coupling hydrological and ecological studies has been triggered by purely scientific questions related to the quantification of the role of interactions between hydrological and biological processes on surface and groundwater resources and quality, but also by the importance of these physical and biological interactions at small, local and regional scales. These scales are of paramount importance for applied environmental issues related to air and water quality or biodiversity dynamics for instance.

The aim of this fourth HydroEco conference (after the three previous ones in Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad), Czech Republic in 2006, and in Vienna (Austria) in 2009 and 2011) is fourfold:

  1. to present new findings and approaches on interactions between hydrology and ecology,
  2. to promote interdisciplinary interactions on water related issues between hydrology, hydrogeology, biogeochemistry, microbial ecology and ecology,
  3. to explore emerging patterns, breakthroughs and challenges, and
  4. to provide management applications and guidelines to tackle environmental issues.


To address the relevant issues, the conference aims to bring together experts from different disciplines, including hydrologists (groundwater, surface water), ecologists, biologists, subsurface microbiologists, environmental biogeochemists, eco-technologists, geomorphologists, hydraulic engineers, forest managers, nature reserve managers, regional and landscape planners, as well as experts from governmental institutions.
