20th Workshop on River Ice

Ottawa, Ontario | May 14 to 16, 2019

The 20th CRIPE Workshop is May 14 to 16, 2019 in Ottawa at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel in the renowned and enjoyable ByWard Market, near the Ottawa River, the Rideau Canal, the Parliament Buildings and nightlife. Ottawa is beautiful at this time of year and the Workshop was planned to correspond with the famous Tulip Festival (and you will be provided the chance to participate).

The Workshop is hosted by Université Laval, Génie civil et genie des eaux (Brian Morse) and the University of Ottawa’s Civil Engineering Department (Colin Rennie). The Workshop will be followed by a one-day short course on May 17th. The theme of the short course will be Reducing Ice Jam Flood Risks. Presentations will be in English but a summary of the Short Course presentations will subsequently be made available in French. The Friday Short Course will be held at the Four Points by Sheraton Hotel and Conference Centre in Gatineau that is a 15 minute walk across the Ottawa River from the Marriott Hotel workshop venue.
