49th International Conference on Water Management Modeling - Toronto, Canada, February 24-25, 2016 

Call for papers



The annual International Conference on Water Management Modeling (formerly on Stormwater and Urban Water Systems) 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 49th annual 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.

The atmosphere is relaxed, presentations are of a high standard and by accepting papers up to the last few weeks before the event, spontaneity is achieved and 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 Geographers
  • Aquatic Biologists
  • Ecologists
  • Landscape Engineers and Architects

The Conference is endorsed by:

  • ASCE Urban Water Resources Research Council
  • Ontario Ministry of Environment and Energy
  • American Water Resources Association
  • US Environmental Protection Agency
  • Conservation Ontario
  • Canadian Society of Civil Engineering


If you have a water project that you feel has made a significant improvement, or an innovation you'd like to share with your peers, we encourage you to submit an abstract. Presentations should highlight computer aspects.

Submissions are welcome in the following areas of endeavors:

  • Urban drainage
  • Stormwater systems
  • Sanitary sewers
  • Watershed modeling
  • Surface water quality
  • Flooding
  • Water supply
  • Water infrastructure
  • Water management
  • Water systems planning
  • Water systems design
  • Water systems operation
  • Numerical analysis in hydraulics and hydrology
  • Computer programming in hydraulics and hydrology

About the Journal of Water Management Modeling:

Conference papers are automatically submitted for publication review in the Journal of Water Management Modeling.

Using the evolving digital modes of R&D communication, The Journal of Water Management Modeling (JWMM) strives to be the first open access exchange in the special sub-discipline of water management modeling. JWMM publishes novel methodologies and advances, from basic research to planning, engineering and operational studies, with an accent on useful and pragmatic ideas and engineering.

Accentuating the nuanced difference between applied technology and fundamental science, JWMM fosters an unusual cooperation between three sub-communities (developers, users and beneficiaries) of conceptual and practical engineering models of urban, rural and watershed scale water supply and drainage systems, both natural and engineered.

Submission process:

  • Notices of intent to submit a paper are invited immediately
  • One-page abstracts are due as soon as possible
  • Submit your abstract and register by December 24​th, 2015 β€‹β€‹to qualify for the early bird discount
  • The deadline for abstract submission is February 3rd, 2016
  • The final paper is due at the conference

Notices of intent to submit an abstract should include a title or topic that you wish to cover, a brief outline if possible, and the names and contact information of the authors involved. Abstract acceptance will be intimated promptly, and paper format requirements emailed to the authors.

For more information about submitting papers and paper formatting, please visit the Journal's Author information page.

If you have any questions about abstract submittal, please email CHI or phone 519-767-0197.
