The 34th congress of the International Society of Limnology (SIL) opened at the Nanjing International Expo Center in Nanjing City on Aug. 19.

As the most important international gathering focused on inland waters including lakes, rivers and ponds, the SIL Congress serves to promote scientific exchange between scientists from many disciplines with managers and engineers, covering topics of biodiversity, eutrophication, water supply, fisheries management and ecosystem restoration.

The inaugural SIL Congress took place in 1922 in Kiel, Germany and, except for a break during the World War II, has been organized every two or three years.

The 34th SIL Congress, the first time in China, is jointly organized by Nanjing Institute of Geography and Limnology, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Soil Science Society of China and State Key Laboratory of Lake Science and Environment.

The event will conclude on Aug. 24. Editor:Dylan
