3rd International Young Researchers Workshop on
River Basin Environment and Management
21st – 22nd December 2015
Ekatossarot Building, Naresuan University, Thailand
Call for Abstracts and Papers
The importance of the appropriate management of River Basins, Water Resource and Environment are becoming increasingly evident. Current concerns are water scarcity, deteriorating water quality and the need to control possible catastrophic events such as floods and droughts and a range of associated problems like landslide, erosion, epidemics and many other problems in river basins. Nevertheless, significant advances have been made in the monitoring, treatment and analysis, and prediction of the behavior of riverine systems resulting in better understanding of their mechanisms and the possibility of optimizing these resources as well as being able to control or mitigate the effects of environmental problems.
Under this context, the workshop is organized by International Network for River Basin Environment; Naresuan University (Thailand), University of Yamanashi (Japan), University of Newcastle (Australia), Asian Institute of Technology (Thailand), Hanoi University of Science (Vietnam), University of Brawijaya (Indonesia), and Center of Research for Environment Energy and Water (CREEW, Nepal).

Sukhothai Historical Park is one of UNESCO World Heritage. It was the capital of the first Kingdom of Siam in the 13th and 14th centuries. It has a number of fine monuments, illustrating the beginnings of Thai architecture. The great civilization which evolved in the Kingdom of Sukhothai absorbed numerous influences and ancient local traditions; the rapid assimilation of all these elements forged what is known as the 'Sukhothai style'.
Sukhothai Historical Park is located around 70 kilometres from the university (1.5-2 hours by bus)
