Seven Days Until HIWE2017

Due to popular demand – to allow for internal approval times – we have buckled and agreed to extend the deadline for standard registration rates by 72 hours to Thursday 9th of November.  We already have 130 registrants and the remaining places are filling fast.  Register quickly to guarantee your spot and lock in the standard fee.

Our programme at a glance includes highlights such as:

The full programme is available online.

Hydraulic Workshop

The day starts with a Q&A session featuring prominent hydraulic modellers discussing the latest techniques and the future direct of 2D modelling. They will discuss cloud storage, GPU cards, calibration techniques, CFD and much more. Mark Forest>, Practice Leader – Floodplain Management and Surface Water Modelling, HDR Engineering, Reno Nevada, USA, talk on the developments and evolution of HEC-RAS. Hear and question Software developers and vendors on the latest developments and innovations.  So far TUFLOW, DHI, 12d, Innovyze, HEC 2D and Waterride are confirmed to be present.  See the latest on Monte Carlo hydraulic modelling with direct examples of these techniques (including the Brisbane River flood study) in practice from front line engineers.

Standard Registration Extended to the 9th of November

Standard registration has been extended until the 9th but will rise from there – we simply can’t extend at standard any longer and prices will rise.  Register now to lock in the standard rate.
