Abstract Regulating rivers has reduced the natural dynamic processes, altered the landscape and its biodiversity. Along large rivers that serve manifold functions, rehabilitation attempts have recovered stretches or certain features, but complete restoration probably will be a utopia. Key questions of the conference were e.g. how sustainable or effective are we so far; how well did we assess our achievements; what are the costs and benefits, opportunities and constraints, the end-points? More than 50 oral contributions and over 40 posters were presented at the conference, 45 of which, from 14 different countries, are published as peer-reviewed papers in this issue
