Following the 4 past successful events in 2010, 2012, 2014 and 2017, the next SimHydro Conference will be held from 12th to 14th of June 2019 at Polytech Nice Sophia (School of Engineering) in Sophia Antipolis technopark, near Nice and Cannes - France (French Riviera). The general theme of the conference will be focused on "Which models for extreme situations and crisis management? ". Hydraulics and related issues are frequently concerned with extreme situations that request to be understood accurately before to imitate actions and the definition of relevant mitigation measures. Under these particular situations, the models currently used could be partly irrelevant due to the new physical phenomena involved, the scale of the processes, the hypothesis included within the different numerical tools, etc. The design and the operation of relevant models represents a challenging task for the modeller who is responsible of the knowledge part of a global system that is dedicated to support the decision makers.
The various sessions will cover a wide spectrum of subjects and offer to the participants the possibility to share and exchange with scientists, practitioners and decision makers.
SimHydro 2019 seeks to create a forum for exchanging ideas, for promoting ground-breaking technologies, for proposing new extensive collaborations, for finding new solutions for water issues and modelling approaches.
The conference is targeting an international audience and endeavours to collect high value papers that will be published in scientific journals and a specific book (Advances in Hydroinformatics).
Hope to see you in Sophia Antipolis in June 2019!
