Between 26nd and 29th of October 2020 and honouring the theme of the congress, “Limnology in a changing world”, we will celebrate in a virtual form from f Murcia (Southeast of Spain) the XX Congress of the Iberian Association of Limnology (AIL-2020). We highlight that the congress is the result of a fruitful coordination between the Iberian Association of Limnology (AIL) and the Iberoamerican Associations of Limnology. Thus, this congress is will be also the III Iberoamerican Congress of Limnology (CIL-2020). This event will provide a valuable opportunity, although in a virtual way, for the exchange of knowledge and experiences among Iberian and Ibero-American limnologists.
One of the main aims of this meeting is to discuss the new scientific knowledge that will be useful to improve the management and conservation of inland aquatic ecosystems (from lakes to deltas and estuaries, through rivers and wetlands). This information will be discussed under a global change scenario and considering new models of man-nature cooperation. Under the slogan “Limnology in a changing world”, the congress aims to discuss key issues to manage these ecosystems that despite being of high importance for humans, are subjected to increasing human pressures and impacts.
