IAH Congress 2015

Event Date

The Latin word ‘AQUA’ (water) dates back to ancient Imperial Rome, when as long as 2000 years ago 1 million inhabitants thrived on groundwater discharging from the surrounding springs. Learning from the past, the themes of the Congress will address the main issues facing hydrogeology in this millennium, including new perspectives related to groundwater and food.

21st century requirements, such as the adoption of new tools and the increasing demand for water from the present global population, will represent the basis of the discussions at the congress. This spirit can be summarized in the conference theme of “Back to the Future”, conjugating previous experience with future tools and needs.
