Workshop on River Ice

CRIPE organizes a Workshop on the Hydraulics of Ice Covered Rivers every two years to promote research related to river ice. Participants include students, researchers, and practitioners from across North America and overseas.

The 22nd Workshop on River Ice will be hosted in scenic Canmore, Alberta, from July 9 to 12, 2023. The local organizing committee is looking forward to the upcoming workshop and preparations are already well underway.

This will be an in-person event at the beautiful Coast Canmore Hotel and Conference Centre. We hope that you will consider attending the workshop and submitting an abstract for papers or posters covering any river ice subject areas, such as:

  • Freeze-up and breakup processes
  • Numerical and Physical Modelling
  • Ice Processes and the Environment
  • Field Monitoring and Case Studies
  • Ice and River Regulation
  • Ice Jams and Breakup Forecasting
  • Ice and Infrastructure
  • Fish and Ice
  • Ice and Climate Change

Additional topics may also be considered.

CRIPE is pleased to host a short course after the workshop. This course will be a hands-on course covering river ice hydraulic modelling. The course will be held on Thursday, July 13 at the Coast Canmore Hotel. Consider extending your stay to include the short course!

Abstract submissions will be accepted through Oxford Abstracts until February 28, 2023.
