Calendar (December 04, 2006)
February 20-21, 2007: Computational Hydraulics International (CHI), of Guelph, Ontario, is sponsoring a two-day workshop on two leading integrated packages for stormwater and sanitary system modelling and design: the U.S. EPA Stormwater Management Model (SWMM) and the PCSWMM 2006. The workshop, to be held in Toronto, is a lead-up to the 40th International Conference on Stormwater and Urban Water Systems Modelling, which will also take place in Toronto February 22 and 23, 2007. This will mark the 16th year the conference, organized by CHI, has been held in Toronto.
The first day of the workshop will provide an introduction and overview of SWMM/PCSWMM modelling including procedures and applications. Day 2 will deal with intermediate and advanced uses of the systems, including GIS integration and various aspects of data analysis. Hands-on exercises will be featured on both days.
The conference will cover a wide range of topics related to water and stormwater system modelling and design, including use of computer models to solve real pollution problems and for water supply and distribution, modelling impacts on aquatic ecosystems and habitats, eco-restoration, instrumentation and decision analysis systems, and relevant issues in policy, legislation, permitting and enforcement.
CHI is inviting abstracts of papers for presentation at the conference; these are due by January 30, 2007. The conference is sponsored by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the Ontario Ministry of Environment, Conservation Ontario, the ASCE Urban Water Resources Research Council and the American Water Resources Association.
Inquiries and/or abstracts should be directed to Bill James at CHI, 519/767-0197, FAX 519/489-0695, E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org. More information is also available on the CHI Web site, www.computationalhydraulics.com.
