The main goal of the conference is to promote issues related to inland navigation by assessing its significance for the development and efficiency of transport systems as well as socio-economic development of regions in which importance is attached to its functioning.
The conference will be a meeting of science and practice. The scientific approach to inland waterway issues will allow to assess its current status, both in the global and local context, including the conditions of its development in Poland and the assessment of the directions of inland waterway development in the technical, organizational, legal and environmental aspects. On the other hand, practitioners will present the most important problems related to inland navigation, both from the legal and administrative as well as operational and service side. Exchange of knowledge between practitioners and scientists will certainly be an added value of the conference.
