A Program Timetable is now available.
This Conference incorporates the 7th International Conference on Urban Drainage Modelling and the 4th International Conference on Water Sensitive Urban Design and is hosted by the Institute for Sustainable Water Resources, Engineers Australia, International Water Association, and the Stormwater Industry Association.
Selected papers from the Conference will be published in the International Water Association's (IWA) journal Water Science and Technology.
This conference will deal with two highly topical issues in management of Urban Water;
(i) modelling of urban drainage systems and the interfaces to other parts of urban water cycle.
(ii) current achievements and problems in Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD), also known as Low Impact Development Design.
It will follow on the six past international gatherings on Urban Drainage Modelling (UDM), and highly successful international WSUD conferences traditionally held in Australia. Therefore, it will bring together these two professional communities, and enhance discussions of integration.
Who Should Attend
The Conference is being organised by a multi-disciplinary team of engineers, modellers, scientists, planners and managers. A similarly diverse spectrum of delegates will meet at the Conference, reflecting the wide-ranging issues involved in urban water management. The joint themes of this conference provide a great opportunity for practitioners, policy-makers, consultants and researchers to discuss the challenges and opportunities of integrated urban water management and modelling.
