Therefore the Symposium calls for abstracts (poster and oral) on the following sub-themes:
Advances in hydrological prediction and climate change forecasting
Hydrology, climate variability, climate change and water resource management
Advances in remote sensing and other earth and hydrological observation

Hydropedology and hydrology
Groundwater - surface water interaction
Ecosystems and hydrology
Water quality and hydrology
Alternative sources of water in a water-scarce country
Hydrology, uncertainty and decision-making
Hydrology and sustainability
