Meet the expert in hydrology - Round tables among young and established scientists (co-organized)
Conveners: Laurent Pfister , Miriam Coenders-Gerrits 
Thu, 11 Apr, 08:30–10:00  / Room R2


Round table discussions with the format of mini-workshops for a selection of young scientists (younger than 35) to meet the established scientists prof. Andras Bardossy (Universität Stuttgart, Germany) and prof Nick van de Giesen (TU Delft, the Netherlands) on a face to face basis for guidance and/or discussion of specific aspects of their current research.

Each round table is open to 6 young scientists discussing a case and 30 young scientists in the audience. The young scientists wishing to participate to one of the round tables are expected to submit a case, by writing an abstract describing the issue/problem they wish to discuss, and, for each round table, six cases will be selected for the discussion (6 time slots).

PhD candidates and early career postdoctoral researchers who wish to seek the advice of a high profile scientist in their field. Selection will be determined by the this year's invited scientists on the relevance of the case problems presented. The selection of the presented case will be done by preferring problems that lend themselves to the mini-workshop form. Special attention will be paid to candidates coming from developing countries.

Each selected candidate discusses his case with the expert along a 15-minutes time-slot. The discussion is open to all the scientists sitting in the audience (who must have submitted a case to be an audience member).

The interested candidates are kindly requested to submit a 200 words abstract of the case they wish to present to the conveners ( and/or
