- information communication on the water story
Water modelling in Queensland covers a breadth of application with the use of water models to inform the management of landscapes and catchments, as well as the design and management of water for our cities. Whether it is creek and rivers, groundwater, estuaries or GBR lagoon the applications are building and at this forum users will have a chance to hear and provide feedback on the model utility and your needs.
The Queensland Water Modelling Network Forum 2018 builds on the success of 2017 forum, by bringing together a broader cross-section of the Queensland water modelling and use sector, including those working in research and education, state and local government officers, water suppliers, utility representatives and consulting firms specialising in urban development.
The aim of the forum is to:
- consolidate and grow awareness, participation and collaboration among water modelers and users in Queensland
- share knowledge of research and innovation in water models and use
- build ways to better work together to increase the use and usefulness of water models for policy, planning and management purposes
- identify themes and issues where the community of water modellers and users in Queensland can maximise future QWMN activities and events to progress these matters.
The full program is about to be released and will include:
- 3 key note presentations focused on leading edge collaboration, integration and use
- 3 interactive workshops sessions
- 2 parallel presentation sessions on water modelling research and practice from across Queensland
- 1 parallel model and technology demonstration session
- a panel discussion session
- a networking event at the end of the first day and catering throughout.
