Mark your calendar for the next installment of the outstanding Smart Rivers Conference series, a biennial forum bringing together an international group of professionals involved in inland / river transport from around the world.

MSU is a partnering organization for this 3-day technical specialty conference organized by PIANC USA. The concept of 'Smart Rivers' sprang from a group started in 2004 called SmartRivers21, an international coalition intent on realizing "Strategic Maritime Asset Research and Transformation for 21st Century River Systems." It began with a cooperation agreement between American and European partners, and was followed by the organization of Smart Rivers 2005 Conference in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Smart Rivers 2006 Conference was held in Brussels, Belgium, and the 2007 conference was held in Louisville, Kentucky. The organizers decided to move to a biennial schedule and Smart Rivers 2009 was held last September in Vienna, Austria.
