The Panta Rhei Working Groups
Last update: March 2, 2014

The Working Groups are expected to promote the research activity of Panta Rhei. They have been built by the community by submitting a proposal to the Panta Rhei leadership. The governance of Panta Rhei was recently stimulated to deliver guidelines for the activity of the Working Groups (WGs). Please feel free to deliver any suggestion you may have to improve the document.
The list of Working Groups follows here below, along with their related proposal that describes the planned activity and the membership.

The reports of the activity carried out by the Panta Rhei Working Groups in 2014 is available for download here below. The WGs have carried out an amazing activity last year, therefore proving the enthusiasm of the Panta Rhei researchers and the popularity and significance of the Panta Rhei themes.
I would like to thank very much the WG Leaders and all the researchers that are working in Panta Rhei. We are more than 400 people, and therefore the Panta Rhei community is numerous and solid.
A summary of the Panta Rhei activity will be presented at the IAHS General Assembly that will take place in June in Prague. I hope to see many of you there.
