Symposium Overview

Hydraulic and hydrological modelling has been an important analytic tool for several decades. While modelling continues to develop as an analytical tool, other data analytic methods and datasets are also maturing rapidly. These tools can be used to complement each other to provide the evidence for investment being demanded by decision makers within the water industry. The symposium aims to bring together those involved in using these tools and interpreting their outputs.

ll hydraulic and hydrological modellers, engineers, environmental practitioners, and stakeholders involved in the collection, management, and effective use of information in the fields of stormwater, wastewater, and water supply modelling are encouraged to attend this symposium.
