49th International Conference on Water Management Modeling
Wednesday, February 24th and Thursday, February 25th, 2016
Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Please join us for an informal gathering of new and old friends in the stormwater community. For professionals and researchers from across North America and overseas, the annual International Conference on Water Management Modeling is a forum to exchange ideas on, and experience with, current practices and emerging technologies.
Effectively the 49th SWMM Users Group Meeting, the 25th in the current series of annual Toronto conferences, and the 36th to be held in Canada, the current title reflects a slightly broader interest, including watershed and water supply systems modeling.
Presentations are of a high standard and, by accepting papers up to the last few weeks before the event, the atmosphere is relaxed and a spontaneity is achieved which gives the conference special character. Attending this conference will allow you to earn up to 1.5 CEUs.
Inherently multi-disciplinary, the conference 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 state-of-the-art computer modeling for resolving water quantity and quality problems in stormwater, wastewater, watershed and water distribution systems:
- Green infrastructure, LIDs, SUDs, wetlands, and agricultural BMPs
- Climate change and system security
- 1D-2D and integrated groundwater modeling
- Urban drainage system design, analysis and management
- Flood forecasting and decision analysis systems
- Modeling urban and agricultural impacts on aquatic systems and habitats
- Pollution management modeling, including TMDLs
- Field data monitoring and emerging instrumentation
- Calibration, optimization and error analysis (genetic algorithms and neural networks)
- Numerical and statistical methods
- CAD, GIS and integrating asset management systems
- Policy, legislation, funding, permitting and enforcement
The Marriott Courtyard Toronto Brampton is just minutes from Pearson International Airport in Toronto, Ontario. 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 2015. Please see our Attendee Information for booking information.
Format and program
Sessions will start each morning at 8:30 a.m., following continental breakfast at 8:00 a.m., and continue, with lunch buffet and refreshment breaks, until 5:00 p.m. on Wednesday and until the final wrap-up on Thursday afternoon. We will be holding a reception cocktail hour, Tuesday February 23rd, 2016 at 6:30pm. We welcome you to this informal gathering of new and old friends in the stormwater community. We will also be holding social gathering and a complimentary dinner on, Wednesday February 24th, 2016 at 5:00pm, please check off on your registration if you wish to attend.
Two PCSWMM/SWMM workshop will be held on Monday, February 22, 2016 and Tuesday, February 23, 2016 at the same venue, and leading up to the conference itself.
Day 1: Introduction to PCSWMM/SWMM5 modeling, the PCSWMM interface, building a new stormwater/sanitary model, hydrology and hydraulics overview, in-line storage facility design, subcatchment parameterization using external GIS layers, system evaluation using design storms, error analysis and water quality modeling.
Day 2: Introduction to Low Impact Development (LID), evaluation of in-stream erosion, introduction to PCSWMM 2D, model calibration, importing HEC-RAS data sets, correcting run errors, flow duration curve analysis and long-term rainfall disaggregation.
