River restorations should reduce anthropogenic impacts in river systems, create habitats in and around rivers, improve the structure, fauna and flora of a river and re-establish the ecological passability and sediment continuity of a river. The goal is for rivers to develop towards a near-natural state. Dynamic processes as well as complex interactions in river systems often make interventions to develop rivers towards this near-natural state cost-intensive, complex, long-term and at times associated with setbacks. The topic near-natural river development has lasting relevance to the current situation due to new requirements, changing conditions, increasing experiences and new findings. Therefore, the 49th International Symposium on Hydraulic Engineering in Aachen will be dedicated to 'Near-Natural River Development - Contributions from Practice and Research.'
