STAHY 2019

by Svenja Fischer

The tenth edition of the STAHY International Workshop, STAHY 2019, is organized by the International Commission on Statistical Hydrology (ICSH) of the International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), in cooperation with the Hohai University. It will be held in Nanjing, China betweeb 19-20 October 2019 at the College of Hydrology and Water Resources, Hohai University. The potential participants could submit 1-page abstract through the IAHS-Copernicus Abstract Management System (will open soon).

STAHY 2019, similarly to previous editions (STAHY 2018 in Adelaide, South Australia & STAHY 2017 in Warsaw, Poland), will focus on statistical methods for hydrological applications. The topics range from big data to extremes and climate change but also prediction and uncertainty. This diversity makes this conference so interesting. I participated in this conference twice and I can highly recommend the participation.

Due to the small community with about 100 people, the conference is very familiar and one gets in touch with the other researchers easily. It has been a great opportunity for me as an early career scientist to talk to experts about my research. On the day before this workshop (Oct 18, 2019), also an Early Career Course will be held as well as a short reception for the early career members. Further information can be found at:

I hope to see many of you at the STAHY 2019!
