The Fourth Vinogradov Conference “ Hydrology: from learning to world view” international scientific conference and school-seminar in memory of outstanding Russian hydrologist Yury Borisovich Vinogradov will be held on October 23 to October 31, 2020 at St. Petersburg State University. 

The conference is organized by St. Petersburg State University (Institute of Earth Sciences, Department of Land Hydrology) with the support of International Association of Hydrological Sciences (IAHS), State Hydrological Institute (St. Petersburg), Gidrotehproekt Ltd and Hydrograph model scientific group (St. Petersburg).


The event consists of two parts: a school-seminar on hydrological modeling (March 20-23, 2020) and a scientific conference (March 24-27, 2020). The preliminary schedule of the school-seminar and scientific conference is given below.


  1. Mathematical modeling in hydrology: problems, achievements, practical application

  2. Dangerous hydrological phenomena: predictability and assessment

  3. Geoecological research and protection of water bodies: what limits – the imperfection of water law or ignorance of the processes?

  4.  Hydrological studies of the Arctic, Antarctic and Mars: exotic or urgent problems? (in honor of the 200th anniversary of discovery of Antarctica)

  5.  Regional water problems: anthropogenic impact and / or climate change?

  6. Methodology of science and current tasks of hydrological research


January 15, 2020 – the deadline for abstract submission

February 1, 2020 – the deadline for articles in special issues of journals

February 15, 2020 – the deadline for extended abstracts in conference proceedings
