  4. Flood hydrology - State of the art plus extreme events occurrence.
    Instructor: Professor Demetris Koutsoyiannis, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA)
  5. Spillways and flood propagation.
    Instructor: Assoc. Professor Panos Papanicolaou, National Technical University of Athens (NTUA)

The Seminar will be of great value and should be attended by owners and managers of dams and reservoirs, members of Dam Safety Organizations, scientists that are interested in research on flood management and dam safety and scientists involved in the design, construction and operation of reservoirs
