International conference: Climate Change and Water;   25-27 May 2021, Tours, FR

Call for papers / conference website:




The international symposium Climate change & Water 2021 under the theme of extremes events will be held from 24 to 27 May 2021 in Tours in the Centre-Val de Loire region. This international conference is open to the academic world and socio-economic partners concerned by the variability of the water cycle and adaptation to extreme events.

Climate change is disrupting the water cycle. Impacts are observed in all environments and socio-ecosystems: forests, soils, lakes, cities, and so on. The MiDi (Environments & Diversity) network and its partners propose to focus on the different forms of impacts of climate change via its effect on water. Indeed, if the general trend of global warming is observed in all regions of the world, where are the findings and responses to climate extremes such as droughts, floods, heat waves and sudden and intense rainfall?

For this second edition of Climate Change & Water (CCW2021), special attention will be paid to the vine and the forest as an object as well as to the particular hydrometeorological extreme such as droughts. This choice does not exclude papers on any other subject of study as well as on other climatic extremes.

Hervé LE TREUT, professor at Sorbonne University and Ecole Polytechnique, will open the conference with a keynote on the state of climate change.


Proposals for papers and posters should be submitted before 10 September on the conference website

Call for papers can be found here.


New: Hydrological Modeling Training Day

As part of the symposium, a one-day training session entitled « Introduction to Hydrological Modelling in the Context of Climate Change » is proposed to masters and doctoral students on Monday, May 24th. It includes an introduction to the principles of hydrological modelling and its importance in the context of climate change.
