Limnologie - die Lehre von den Binnengewässern

Veranstaltungen und Tagungen


Dear colleagues and friends,

I would like to invite to participate in WRW2021 – 5th International Conference Water resources and wetlands which will be held on 8-12 September 2021 in Tulcea (Romania).  Conference it is organized by the Romanian Limnogeographical Association (RLA) in collaboration with the German Limnological Society (GLS), Polish Limnological Society (PLS), Danube Delta National Institute Tulcea (DDNI) and the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve Authority (DDBRA).

First, if the situation regarding pandemics will normalize, the conference will be organized in-person as planned, in Tulcea and field trip will be in Danube Delta (8-12 September 2021). Depending by the EU and national regulations it is possible to be necessary to have a vaccination certificate or a negative RT-PCR test to travel in Romania.

Also, both in-person and virtual participation will be possible.

Second, if the situation will be far from optimal, we plan to organize a virtual conference.
