Since its first edition in Genova, Italy, in 1999, the RCEM Symposium has been hosted in 8 different countries spanning 4 continents and has provided the setting for the morphodynamic debate. Since the beginning, the RCEM community has been developing around the discipline areas of fluid mechanics, sediment transport, hydraulic engineering and quantitative geomorphology. The dominant approach has initially been the one of modelling, including analytical theories and numerical models, with the aims of understanding physical mechanisms and mutual feedbacks, predicting patterns and system tendencies and of quantifying underlying processes. During these last two decades, the morphodynamic community has been evolving, impressive advances in computational efficiency and data acquisition have been achieved, and the interaction with a broader set of disciplines has been developing, as also witnessed by the participation to the last RCEM editions. Moving from the same initial spirit that motivated the start of the RCEM Symposium, we aim especially at:
