Canadian Dam Association Bulletin - Fall 2017 - 41

ICOLD Corner

T

he Annual Meeting and
Symposium of the International
Commission on Large Dams
(ICOLD) took place in Prague, Czech
Republic, 2-7 July 2017. Over 1100 representatives from 72 countries attended.
Thirty (30) delegates came from Canada.
CDA hosted a booth in the Exhibition
area and highlighted the Canadian
technical bulletins produced by our
members (Dam Safety Guidelines
2007 (2013 Edition), Application of
Dam Safety Guidelines to Mining
Dams, Guidelines for Public Safety
around Dams, etc). International delegates could also speak with Canadian
business representatives. The Office of
the Canadian Trade Commissioner in
Prague also participated in one of the
events on July 4th, encouraging us to
continue our international exchanges.
A few Canadian appointments have
been made, and CDA congratulates them:
* Jean-Pierre Tournier, as 6th VicePresident on the Board of Directors
of ICOLD (2017-2020);
* Leila Ouhabit, as representative on
the Young Professionals Committee
(2017-2020).
For Canadian delegates, it is important to attend these meetings, symposiums or conventions to improve
collaboration with the international

community. It is essential to be exposed
to advances and different approaches
to the challenges we face. Members of
the technical committees of ICOLD convene at the annual meetings to begin
or continue the creation of the ICOLD
Bulletins. They also take these opportunities to hold workshops and obtain
input from the international community on their work.
Technical meetings and workshops
are open to all. Canada is represented
on 20 of the 25 ICOLD technical committees and six (6) of the 25 committees are
chaired by Canadians. We act as leaders
on many of these committees, and we
want to continue in that role. Several
committees may also have co-opted
members from the same country, and
you could be part of this too. This is an
opportunity for professionals to see how
ICOLD Bulletins are developed, and to
provide input to publications that will
be used as references for years to come.
The Bulletins are the product of this
hard work. Three Bulletins will soon be
available free of charge on the internet:
* Technical Advancements in
Spillway Design - Progress and
Innovations from 1985 to 2015;
* Integrated Operation of Hydroelectric
Power Stations and Reservoirs;
* Action plan on capacity building.

In July 2018, the World Congress
will take place in Vienna with
four technical questions for which
abstracts of papers can be submitted to ICOLD; the Canadian abstracts
will be transmitted by the CDA. A
clarification is forthcoming regarding the deadline for abstract transmission to ICOLD, and you will be
kept informed.
During a symposium covering subjects different from those of the main
congress, papers will be presented
on a day during the same week.
The abstract submission deadline is
September 30, 2017. They should be
sent directly to the organizing committee in Vienna. The topics covered
during the 2018 symposium will be:
* Climate changes Reservoir Operation;
* Permission and Safety Assessment;
* Dam and Foundation Sealing;
* Caverns and Power Water Ways;
* Stability of Reservoir Slopes.

CDA thanks the Canadian delegates and their sponsoring employers.
You are the Canadian ambassadors
for our know-how in large dams.
