Virtual online access 



February 24 and 25, 2021



The annual International Conference on Water Management Modeling is a forum for professionals and researchers from across North America and overseas to exchange ideas and experience on current practices and emerging technologies.

This is effectively the 54th annual SWMM Users Group Meeting, and this is the 1st to be held virtually. The current title reflects a slightly broader interest, including watershed and water supply systems.

The atmosphere is relaxed, presentations are of a high standard and by accepting papers up to the weeks before the event, a spontaneity is achieved which gives this conference special character. Attending this conference will allow you to earn up to 1.5 CEUs.

Who will be attending?

  • Civil and Municipal Engineers
  • Environmental Engineers
  • Consultants
  • Instructors and Researchers from Universities and Research Institutions
  • Municipal and Government Engineering Professionals
  • Public Works Personnel
  • Policy Makers
  • Fluvial Geomorphologists
  • Urban Planners and Geographers
  • Aquatic Biologists
  • Ecologists
  • Landscape Engineers and Architects


Do you have a water management project or an innovation that you'd like to share with your peers? Would you like to present to a large audience of water systems modelers? If so, we invite you to submit an abstract for the International Conference on Water Management Modeling.

The friendly atmosphere, narrow focus and avoidance of parallel sessions provides a unique opportunity for both new and experienced presenters to connect with top professionals and researchers from across North America and overseas.

Suggested topics include:

  • Urban drainage system (storm and wastewater) design, analysis and management
  • 1D, 2D, 3D surface water and/or integrated groundwater modeling
  • Water distribution vulnerability/risk, rehabilitation and management modeling
  • Flood forecasting, flood risk assessment, floodplain mapping and support systems
  • Green infrastructure (LIDs, SuDS), wetlands, and agricultural BMPs
  • Climate change and system resiliency, vulnerability, security
  • Greywater system optimization and water conservation
  • Stream stability, erosion and sedimentation analyses and protection design
  • Restoration and rehabilitation of watercourses, wetlands and lakes 
  • Evaluating urban and rural impacts on aquatic systems and habitats, long-term water budget analyses
  • Water quality analyses and pollution management modeling, including SSOs, CSOs and TMDLs
  • Field data monitoring, emerging instrumentation/operations and asset condition rating assessments
  • Calibration, optimization and error analysis (genetic algorithms and neural networks)
  • Numerical and statistical methods, time series and vector data analysis
  • Modeling data development and management using CAD, GIS and asset management systems


Abstracts or notices of intent are invited immediately. Please include a title or topic that you wish to cover, a brief outline (300 word maximum) and the names and contact information of the authors involved. Acceptance will be communicated starting December 1, 2020.

Register for the conference by December 31, 2020 to take advantage of the early bird discount. The deadline for abstracts is February 1, 2021, but be warned that the program tends to fill up fast.

Final papers are due March 31, 2021 ​​and are – at no cost – reviewed for publishing in the Journal of Water Management Modeling.
