The 2021 Conference will be held virtually for the first time! The conference theme is Balancing Past Performance with Future Expectations. Technical sessions will consider past performance and historical design criteria of aging infrastructure while focusing on environmental, social, economic, and technological changes as well as evolving expectations of regulatory regimes related to the construction and operation of dams.
