We are pleased to invite you to send delegates and their accompanying persons to our 91st Annual Meeting, hosted by the National Committee of Sweden, SwedCOLD. The meeting will be held 11 – 15 June 2023, in Gothenburg, Sweden.

Gothenburg is a friendly city located on the west coast of Sweden. She is called the second Swedish capital and known for its culture and long history of international trade and influences. As the second-largest city in Sweden, Gothenburg boasts a vibrant cultural scene, world-class restaurants, sustainable living, and a fascinating history – all within walking distance from our ICOLD hotels and conference centre. Several excellent Study Tours will be offered before and after the meeting along with our usual ICOLD exclusive Cultural Evening and Technical Excursion.

SwedCOLD is also hosting a special Symposium as part of ICOLD 2023 whose theme is Management for Safe Dams. The purpose of this symposium is to share information from case studies, technologies, and innovations to increase the safety of dams and levees along with their associated benefits, perfectly fitting with the essential commitment of ICOLD to Dam Safety.

In our changing world, ICOLD must be a key player in offering solutions to climate change adaptation and energy transition. We, dam and reservoir professionals, must pledge to play our full part in the process. Our Annual Meetings and Congresses are milestones in our efforts to achieve these goals. So, we warmly encourage our ICOLD family and friends to gather for ICOLD 2023 in Gothenburg as we continue the work to meet our mission in setting standards and guidelines to ensure that dams and levees are built and operated safely, efficiently, economically, and are environmentally sustainable and socially equitable. We invite you to participate in this meeting as we endeavour to meet the challenges of the 21st century in the development and management of the world’s water and hydro power resources and to be part of the solution to the crisis that the planet is going through.
