In order to facilitate the good organization of the meeting and your best welcoming in Plovdiv, I thank you in advance for also returning, at your earliest convenience, this form to:
inbo@wanadoo.fr or inbo@inbo-news.org or by Fax: +33 1 40 08 01 45.

Our meeting will be organized around roundtables dealing with the updated issues of the Implementation of the EU-WFD, the Implementation of the EU Flood Directive, strategies to face scarcity and droughts and in general the measures to be introduced for adaptation of water resources management to the effect of the climate changes, Science - Policy Interface, …etc.

This year, in the context of preparation of the second WFD river basin management plans, which include a review of the monitoring networks and programmes, a workshop dedicated to monitoring will be organized on 13 November 2013 back-to-back with our conference. Its primary objective is to compare practices and practical experiences of monitoring, and promote the exchange of questions and solutions. You are invited also to participate in this workshop.l

Several side events could be also organized.

Any useful information, programs and papers will be continuously available on the website:

Your hotel booking at group discount price can be made for you by our Bulgarian colleagues at the Park hotel Imperial in Plovdiv: http://hotelimperial.bg .

I would advise you to arrive at Sofia International Airport on Tuesday, November 12, 2013, from where shuttles will be organized to drive you to your hotel and to the conference venue. If your agenda allows, you could leave Sofia on Saturday, November 16, 2013.

A tour of Plovdiv imposes itself with its exceptionally preserved Roman amphitheater and its historic centre still surrounded by ramparts with its cobbled streets, old houses and palaces.”

Our Bulgarian hosts will take charge of the shuttles from Sofia Airport to Plovdiv and local travels in Plovdiv, together with lunches and dinners, from, Wednesday November 13 evening to Friday, November 15.

Unfortunately, INBO cannot support any cost for your international travel and your accommodation in Plovdiv.

Looking forward to meeting you in Sofia next November, and I remain,

Yours faithfully.
