XX. International Conference on Computational Methods in Water Resources
For almost 40 years, CMWR has presented and encouraged progress in water-related computational methods, so this 20thconference in the biennial series is a real cause for celebration!
The conference will be a forum for the dissemination of the latest ideas in the development and application of advanced computational techniques to problems in water resources and related fields. Topics will include surface and subsurface hydrology , environmental hydrodynamics , ecohydrology , contaminant remediation , carbon sequestration , climate change , nuclear waste storage, fracking and geomechanics . The inexorable increase in raw computational power, software developments, the availability of on-line hydrological data , and recent advances in cyber-infrastructure make this a particularly exciting time for computational applications to challenges in water resources and geosciences.
The organizers welcome contributions that either directly involve such computations for problems in water resources or that present concepts relevant to such computations . In the course of the four-day conference, regular and special sessions will address recurring, emerging, and crosscutting topics in the broad areas of computations and water resources, highlighted by lectures from keynote speakers of international renown.
In celebration of the 20th conference, one of the sessions will be dedicated to the topics that have shaped CMWR over the past 40 years.
