Dear friends, dear members of our global dam family,
At the end of December 2021, we sent you the final Bulletin of the 27th ICOLD Congress and the 90th ICOLD Annual Meeting, which will be held from May 27 to June 3, 2022 in Marseille. This Bulletin contains all the information concerning the program of the event and the organization of your coming to France.
The ICOLD Board of Directors, the French Committee for Dams and Reservoirs and the ICOLD 2022 Congress Organizing Committee assure you of their full confidence in the holding of this event in the best conditions, despite the pandemic context that the world is still facing.
The health situation is improving in France and in Europe and the French authorities have just relaxed the restrictive measures in force until now, for public meetings and congresses.
Many national committees have expressed their wish to meet again, to share and to live pleasant moments together. This congress will be a reunion, which we hope will be memorable.
Come and join us!
Early bird rates extented until 15th April
|You can register now for this event and book your hotel on our Website:
The event will take place at the end of spring, a favorable tourist period for travel, especially in the south of France. Many international events take place in Marseille at the same time as our congress.
Revolugo, our hotel reservation partner, has already pre-booked many rooms. However, we advise you to register without delay and to book your accommodation as soon as possible in order to benefit from the advantageous rates reserved for ICOLD/CIGB delegates via the Revolugo platform accessible from the congress website https://cigb-icold2022.fr/fr/visitor/hotels/
If however you were afraid of possible difficulties of refunding in case of postponement and cancellation (which we exclude today!), know that:
- the conditions for refunding registrations for the event are provided and specified in the registration form,
- the cancellation without fees at D-30 is possible in most of the hotels accessible via the Revolugo platform and some hotels propose cancellations without fees until the day of arrival, according to their availability at the date of your reservation.
An early reservation is therefore highly recommended.
We look forward to seeing you!

Marseille and the South Region
The 27th Congress of ICOLD, organized by the French Committee of Dams and Reservoirs in close partnership with the South Region, will be an opportunity to discover or rediscover the city of Marseille.
Marseille, a major port in the Mediterranean, capital of the region, has many attractions. Beyond that, your presence in Marseille will also be an opportunity to enjoy the thousand facets of the South Region. The full name of the region with Provence, Alpes and Côte-d'Azur is an open door to extremely varied landscapes, activities, architectural or natural riches. The tourist offer is extraordinarily wide in a region anchoring its action in sustainable development.
The region's involvement in the climate will be reflected in question 107 of the Congress and in the interventions at the symposium on May 30.
The program prepared by the Organizing Committee will allow a first discovery of the region during technical visits, the program for accompanying persons and post-Congress study tours.
Be sure that the pleasure of these first visits will call for the desire to return.
For other aspects of the region's work, visit its website: https://www.maregionsud.fr.

On behalf of the Australian National Committee on Large Dams (ANCOLD) Executive and the Local Organising Committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the 2022 ANCOLD NZSOLD Conference in Sydney, New South Wales.
The conference will be held at the International Convention Centre (ICC), Australia’s first fully integrated harbourside convention, exhibition, and entertainment venue. The ICC is situated in a spectacular location on the Darling Harbour waterfront.
The conference theme, “Sustainable Dams in a Climate of Change” is timely given the significant changes to the operating landscape that is impacting the dams industry. The conference will provide an invaluable opportunity to consider the landscape we occupy as an industry, by exploring the challenges and opportunities of dam ownership against a backdrop of increasing expectations from the community and other stakeholders. This will be a great forum to share industry good practice about: the safety management of ageing dams; sustainable practices and considerations for building new dams; climate change reflections and implications on dam engineering; innovation and adoption of new technologies in dam operation and maintenance; application of risk-based systems in design and assessment of dams.
It is almost 3 years since the last in-person NZSOLD/ANCOLD conference in Auckland and four years on home soil for ANCOLD, hence the Sydney conference will provide a good opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, expand professional networks, engage directly with speakers, and gain new insights from the exhibitor displays.
We welcome and value the ongoing support from past sponsors of the ANCOLD NZSOLD conferences and encourage new sponsors to take up the opportunities and brand exposure that this conference can offer.
We look forward to seeing you all in Sydney in October, for what promises to be an enlightening, rewarding and memorable event.
ANCOLD NZSOLD 2022 Conference Convenor
