From the organising committee:
I would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the approaching registration deadline for the NCWE 11th National Conference on Hydraulics in Civil Engineering, to be held 25-27 June 2014 in Brisbane, Australia.
The technical program will provide symposium attendees with a unique opportunity to interface with leading Australian and international experts in hydraulic engineering, with presentations on current state-of-the-art practices, latest research results, and practical case histories related to the design and operation of hydraulic structures.
Don’t miss out on the opportunity to register for this important event on the calendar of the hydraulic engineering community. Please see below for more information, and feel free to forward this message to others. The technical program will include:
- Keynote presentations.
- Technical Sessions with over 40 technical paper presentations on Hydraulic Structures from 18 different countries.
- Special Forum on 2D Modelling of Hydraulic Structures.
- Pre-Symposium Workshop on Australian Rainfall & Runoff.
- Technical Tour to 3 dams in South East Queensland.
- Visit to University of Queensland Hydraulic Laboratory.
The NCWE 11th National Conference on Hydraulics in Civil Engineering of Engineers Australiawill be held in conjunction with the IAHR 5th International Symposium on Hydraulic Structures. The combined event has the theme of “Hydraulic Structures and Society – Engineering Challenges and Extremes”, and will focus on the role of hydraulic structures in meeting the challenge of extreme events while addressing the requirements imposed by our growing population, the environment, agriculture, industry, and tourism for current and future generations.
Keynote lectures will include:
- Scour at Hydraulic Structures – ENGINEERS AUSTRALIA HENDERSON ORATION
Professor Bruce MELVILLE, University of Auckland, New Zealand
- Hydraulics of stepped weirs and dam spillways: engineering challenges, labyrinths of research
Professor Jorge MATOS, IST Lisbon, Portugal
