Learn the latest practices, technologies and solutions in the water and wastewater industries
Innovyze are proud to announce their 6th consecutive conference will be hosted at the Sofitel Hotel Brisbane on the 4th and 5th September, 2013. Brisbane boasts a vibrant, multicultural atmosphere and a modern, bustling business precinct. The busy community events calendar and warm Queensland weather promotes a flood of tourism and business activity for Brisbane during spring. We warmly welcome you to join us in Queensland’s capital city at this established and highly educational event.
Along with a change of host city, this year we see a slight change to the conference name to acknowledge the diversity of modelling and network types within the Asia Pacific water industry. The organisers also acknowledge that computational hydraulic modelling has evolved from a static network sizing tool to cover a diverse range of areas such as:
- Asset performance and work order management
- Data cleansing and consistency project
- Live decision making at operations centres including automated event detection
- Business intelligence solutions for water utility and waterway governance
- Automated and optimised network control
- Integrated catchment modelling
Not surprisingly, in a world still recovering from a serious global financial downturn and where rapid urbanisation prevails, this evolution of computational hydraulic modelling has been driven by a need to obtain the best social and environmental performance from our water networks for the least cost. This driver has seen academics, government employees, consulting engineers and software vendors working side by side to bring previously separated disciplines together.
This year’s conference will showcase a diverse range of modelling projects in order to illustrate this evolution and inspire fellow professionals to seek the smartest possible solutions for both established and newly presenting challenges. Do you know all there is to know about modelling? Can you afford not to be in Brisbane in September?
