International Conference on Stormwater & Urban Water Systems Modeling

Wed, 2012-02-22 - Thu, 2012-02-23
Toronto, ON, Canada


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.  The conference is sponsored by the American Society of Civil Engineers Urban Water Resources Research Council, the American Water Resources Assn., the U.S. EPA, the Ontario Ministry of Environment and Energy, the Canadian Society for Civil Engineering, and Conservation Ontario. It generates a 500-page hard-cover book of the proceedings that is extensively referenced, edited and indexed.

This is the 21st in the current series of annual Toronto conferences. It is also effectively the 45th SWMM Users Group Meeting, and the 30th to be held in Canada. Presentations are of a high standard, attendance is large and discussion is lively. And, by accepting papers up to the last few weeks before the event, a spontaneity is achieved which gives this conference special character.

The conference is multidisciplinary and is designed for all who have a direct stake in storm water management, nonpoint 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 policymakers; professionals from municipal and government engineering; public works personnel; consultants; and instructors and researchers at universities and research institutes.
