The annual International Conference on Stormwater and Urban Water Systems Modeling is a forum for professionals from across North America and overseas to exchange ideas and experience on current practices and emerging technologies. This forum is for engineers, scientists, modelers and administrators involved in water pollution control and water systems design and analysis. Topics include hydrology, hydraulics, water quality and receiving waters, from precipitation processes, runoff, pollutant build-up, washoff, surcharging pipe networks, and water distribution systems, to pollutant removal and impacts on aquatic ecosystems.
This is the 46th annual SWMM Users Group Meeting, the 22nd in the current series of annual Toronto conferences, and the 33rd to be held in Canada. The current title reflects a slightly broader interest, including water distribution systems. The atmosphere is relaxed. Presentations are of a high standard. And, by accepting papers up to the last few weeks before the event, a spontaneity is achieved which gives this conference special character.
Location for 2013 Conference
The Marriott Courtyard Toronto Brampton is just minutes from Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Ontario. It has complimentary on-site parking, complimentary Internet access throughout the hotel, easy freeway access and a short cab ride from the airport.
The Courtyard Marriott will have a number of room blocked for this event but please reserve your room early, once the registration process comes online in late Fall 2012. Please see below under "Accommodations" for booking information.
Who should attend?
The conference is multi-disciplinary and is designed for all who have a direct stake in stormwater management, non-point source pollution or the modeling of urban water systems. Attendees include: civil and environmental engineers; landscape engineers and architects; aquatic biologists, ecologists, fluvial geomorphologists and other scientists; urban geographers, and policy makers; professionals from municipal and government engineering; public works personnel; consultants; and instructors and researchers at universities and research institutes.
Emphasis is on:
- using state-of-the-art computer models to resolve real pollution problems and for eco-restoration
- surface water quality modeling
- modeling impacts on aquatic systems and habitats
- stormwater and pollution management modeling
- urban water systems modeling
- urban drainage system design and analysis
- wetlands and BMPs and LIDs
- field data monitoring and emerging instrumentation
- geographic information systems
- decision analysis systems
- facilities management systems
- computer aided design
- policy, legislation, permitting and enforcement
The conference proceedings include the papers approved by independent review, synthesized into a coherent book and published as a hard-bound text, complete with comprehensive index. The 2012 proceedings, Pragmatic Modeling of Urban Water Systems - Monograph 21 will be distributed at the conference and is included in the registration fee. Past volumes (in matching format) are available.
Exhibits, Displays and Posters
The conference is an excellent forum for exhibiting instrumentation, equipment and products related to stormwater and water quality modeling and for displaying posters. It attracts a large international participation and is an ideal platform to present posters or products to the decision makers in the field.
