Preconference Workshops


During the 3rd September, three preconference workshops would be organized at the Best Western Hotel. They are:

  1. Towards more Flood Resilient Cities The workshop entitled Towards more Flood Resilient Cities (ToRC) aims to join practitioners and researchers to discuss possible ways to increase flood resilience of cities and urban areas. The programme will be organised in two parts. In the first part invited speakers present the advances and achievements in their city flood resilience expertise areas. The second part of the workshop will be open to discussion with the panel of speakers, also involving the audience. More information (link to the ToRC page)
  2. MicroPollutants in sewer and drainage systems A pre-conference workshop on MicroPollutants in sewer and drainage systems (uPW) will be held. The workshop will include two sessions: the first one will be about metrology and monitoring (from field sampling campaigns to laboratory analytical methods); the second one will deal with data sets at international level (available databases on pollutant loads, interpretation and comparison methods). More information (link to the uPW page)
  3. DHI software for urban water modelling seminar The workshop is intended primarily for staff of designers, property managers of the urban water as well as operators. The first part of the seminar covers the ongoing status of urban water modelling in Central and Eastern Europe. Several case studies and examples of successful applications of DHI Software in drawing up strategic and conceptual projects for urban drainage, stormwater management, waste water treatment as well as water supply and distribution are presented. In the second part of the seminar the participants will get acquainted with specific DHI products and solutions for the modelling of urban water, namely MIKE URBAN (both water distribution and collection systems), WEST and Gandalf.

  4. Integrated Urban Drainage Modelling - Rivers, Closed-Conduits, and Overland Flow – How to model the entire system with XPSWMM Complete drainage system modeling has been a challenging task for many engineers. The difficulty of this task has been largely due to the segmentation of model applicability – one model is good for open channels, but not for closed-conduits; another is for 2D overland flow but includes no 1D channels; a third is excellent in simulating rainfall/runoff, but has limited hydraulic capability; etc. The desire to get the “whole picture”, currently topping the list of modeler’s and regulator’s demands, requires a model capable in all aspects of drainage simulation. The XPSWMM model allows engineers to simulate all types of conveyance along with rainfall/runoff processes. This course will present the methods, tools, and reasoning for modeling rivers, closed conduits and overland flow in one integrated system. More information (link to the XPSWMM-Workshop page).
