Venue: Kyoto, Japan


Workshop Statement: Sediment bypass tunnels (SBT) are hydraulic structures that gain worldwide importance as a measure to counter reservoir sedimentation. Sediments are bypassed around a dam to the tailwater reach reducing sediment aggradation in the reservoir on the one hand and allowing for re-establishing sediment continuity on the other. The latter is more and more aimed at from an ecological point of view since river bed erosion downstream of the dam is decelerated along with an increase of morphological and ecological variability. The 1st IWSBT in April 2015 hosted by the Laboratory of Hydraulics, Hydrology and Glaciology at ETH Zurich, Switzerland, was a great success with 89 participants from 12 countries gathering to exchange and discuss latest research findings and experiences. We joyously invite you to participate at the 2nd IWSBT taking place in Kyoto, Japan, to further discuss newest SBT-related topics. A 1.5 day workshop will be held at Kyoto University, Uji Campus, accompanied by a 2 day field trip to Nagano Prefecture to visit the Miwa, Koshibu and Matsukawa sediment bypass tunnels. The workshop encompasses keynotes, oral presentations, poster sessions and sound discussions. We look forward to seeing you in Kyoto!
