25th SWIM Conference

25. Salt Water Intrusion Meeting

We cordially invite you to the 25th Saltwater Intrusion Meeting (SWIM), to be held in Gdańsk, Poland  from 17 to 22 June 2018. Registration and abstract submission will open on 1 November 2017

SWIM conferences originated in 1968, as a result of collaboration between researchers from Germany, Netherlands and Denmark, working on problems of freshwater-saltwater interaction in coastal aquifers.

Since that time SWIM meetings have been organized - mostly on biennial basis - in different European countries, with an increasing number of participants. The scope also expanded, to include topics such as submarine groundwater discharge, groundwater salinity of various origins or coastal aquifer management. Starting from 2008, when SWIM and SWICA conferences merged, every second SWIM is held outside Europe - the most recent one took place in Cairns, Australia in 2016. More information on the previous SWIMs can be found at:

In 2018 we are going to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the SWIM conference in Gdańsk - a city on the Polish Baltic coast, offering many cultural and historical attractions, as well as a variety of beautiful landscapes.
