It was nice meeting you at ISRS 2023 in Florence

The 15th International Symposium on River Sedimentation 2023 started on 5 September and ran for 3 days until 8 September 2023 in Florence, Italy. Bringing together professionals from around the world, it was a very nice opportunity to discover, exchange and learn more about sustainable sediment management in a changing environment.

The conference started with an ice breaking cocktail along Arno River, beneath Ponte Vecchio bridge. This spot was just amazing !
