Track B: Sediment transport: grain scale and continuum scale. Including sub-topics such as:advancement in sediment transport theories, tools,      and new data sets for the understanding of sediment particle motion at both grain scale and continuum scale, and the implications for scour. 
Track C: Effects of Geology on Internal Erosion. Including sub-topics such as: anisotropy, heterogeneity, random field analysis, field      investigations versus actual conditions. 
Track D: Rock scour. Including sub-topics such as: theoretical, computational, laboratory, and field studies on rock scour process. Spillway and stilling basin erosion. 
Track E: Erosion and Structures. Including sub-topics such as: bridge scour, internal erosion along structures, erosion around foundations,      physical processes controlling the local scour around structures; interactions among fluid flow, sediment, and structures; new techniques and designs to alter the flow and scour processes. 
Track F: River, coastal, estuarine and marine scour and erosion. Including sub-topics such as: scour and erosion researches and case studies specific for the riverine, coastal, estuarine and marine environments. 
Track G: Numerical modelling of scour and erosion. Including sub-topics such as: advanced computing techniques, numerical schemes,      novel approaches for data assimilation, uncertainty quantification and analysis. Field and laboratory scale.
Track H: Physical modelling of scour and erosion. Including sub-topics such as: scale models, flume tests for internal and surficial erosion,      similitude, centrifuge testing, small and large-scale testing. 
Track I: Erosion monitoring and measurement. Including sub-topics such as: novel sensors and instruments, subsurface monitoring,      underwater monitoring, innovative techniques, interpretation methods and data processing techniques for monitoring and measuring scour and      erosion across spatial and temporal scales. 
Track J: Watershed scale soil erosion, restoration, and conservation. Including  sub-topics such as: technology, management, and policy for the control      of soil erosion at watershed scale including: effect of land use change, riparian buffer constructions to reduce sediment input, reservoir      sedimentation and management. 
Track K: Scour and Erosion countermeasures and mitigation. Including sub-topics such as:applications of both traditional and emerging      countermeasures to scour and internal erosion problems
Track L: Geo-hazards induced by scour and internal erosion. Including sub-topics such as:debris flows, land slide, bank erosion, river      meandering, and their impact to infrastructures. 
Track M: Erosion Risk Assessment. Including sub-topics such as: assessment methods, risk assessment methods, mitigation methods, monitoring. 
Track N: Case Histories, Lessons Learned and General Practice. Including practical aspects and lessons learned on technical topics in Tracks A through K such as success and failures related to: innovative solutions, construction experience, field observations, etc.
