IMPORTANT NOTICE: The call for special sessions will take place on May 1st, 2023!

Welcome to HIC!

The Ministry of Water Resources (MWR) of People’s Republic of China and China Institute of Water Resources and Hydropower Research (IWHR) are pleased to invite the international Hydroinformatics community to the 15th International Conference on Hydroinformatics – HIC 2022, held in Beijing, China, on 27 – 31 May 2024.

Hydroinformatics is defined as the study of the flow of information and the generation of knowledge related to the dynamics of water in the real world, through the integration of modelling, information technologies and artificial intelligence considering sustainability and social implications for decision support and smart management of water-based systems.

International Conference on Hydroinformatics (HIC) has a long tradition, dating back to 1994 for its first edition. The next 15th HIC 2024 will celebrate its 30th anniversary and the development of a vivid Hydroinformatics community.

Call for Special Sessions

The technical program of HIC 2024 will include special sessions on new or emerging topics related to Hydroinformatics. Each special session will consist of 5-6oral presentations. The special session proposal should contain the following information.


·   A title for the special session, the names and contact information of the organizers;

·   A brief description of the session (up to one page);

·   Brief biographies of the session organizer(s) and their contact details;

·   5-6 tentative papers with title, authors and short abstract.

Special session proposals will be evaluated immediately upon submission based on the timeliness of the topic, its uniqueness, and qualifications of the proposers. Accepted special sessions will be listed on the HIC 2024 website. To avoid multiple special sessions covering similar topics, it is likely that an accepted proposal will be combined with similar proposals. Organizers should not contribute more than one paper for the special session.

Important dates:


Call for special sessions: May 1, 2023

Special Session Proposals submission deadline: September 15, 2023

Notification of acceptance of the proposal: immediately upon submission
