First International Conference on

Urban Water Interfaces

22-24 September 2020

online conference


Conference programme, conference instructions and summary of abstracts


Interfaces in urban water systems play a key role in the urban water cycle but are still understudied. They connect a large number of compartments and subsystems and notably affect the overall system behaviour. The processes and fluxes of interfaces are highly complex due to, for example, steep physical and biogeochemical gradients, high numbers of micro-organisms and reaction rates, non-linear behaviour and feedback effects as well as heterogeneous and dynamic structures. Considerable knowledge gaps still exist - urgently requiring novel interdisciplinary collaboration of engineers and natural scientists. Under this collaborative perspective, we want to develop a new understanding and thinking on future urban water management being faced by multiple stressors such as climate and demographic change, ongoing urbanization and continuous growth of contaminations as well as multiple uses.

Why you should attend

  • We highlight progress which have been achieved within the DFG Research Training Group ‘Urban Water Interfaces’.
  • We aim to provide a platform for presenting state of the art insights and novel findings from an international interdisciplinary community.
  • We are encouraging contributions from the international scientific community, but also representatives from water engineering practice and administration.
  • We invite you to attend and present at the conference, which will take place in the very exciting and lively city of Berlin, Germany.
