The local organizing committee is delighted to invite you to participate in the 9th International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures (ISHS 2022) to be held in hybrid mode at Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Roorkee, India during 24th -27th October, 2022. This symposium will bring together academia and industry from across the globe to discuss issues and solutions in the design and construction of hydraulic structures. The symposium will provide a distinctive opportunity for engineers and researchers to present their works and be mentored by senior engineers and researchers. The symposium will be organized under the aegis of IAHR, Indian Society for Hydraulics (ISH), CWC, CBIP, India.

Symposium Format

The Symposium would be four days in duration. A workshop shall be organized on the first day while next two days will be dedicated to ISHS technical sessions, including keynote addresses. The final day will be a technical field tour.

Indian Institute of Technology Roorkee is among the foremost of institutes of national importance in higher technological education and in engineering, basic and applied research. The Institute will celebrate its demisemiseptcentennial in year 2022.  The Department of Civil Engineering at the IIT Roorkee is the oldest and the largest in the country and is considered as the best in the country for education in Civil Engineering. It was established on October 19, 1847 as Roorkee College of Civil Engineering and renamed as the Thomason College of Civil Engineering in 1854. The department is producing several eminent engineers who are making notable contributions in the planning and execution of Civil Engineering projects in India as well as abroad. Hydraulics Laboratory of Civil Engineering was established in 1956, having a floor area of 4400 m2 and a discharge of 1.0 m3/s and equipped with state-of-art equipments.
