URSULA researcher Vikas Kumar is keen to invite you to submit an abstract for the 'Modelling the coupled social-environmental and physical systems of urban water' session he is running at the International Congress on Environmental Modelling and Software, Ottawa, July, 2010. The aim of his session will be to present recent theoretical and applied work in the area of integrated modelling to support urban water management (UWM). This session will seek to stimulate analysis and discussion around a number of important issues, including: interfacing social and engineering models, comparing different techniques, what are the issues for effective implementation, and acceptance – the challenges of the transition from prototype model to real life application. The deadline is 27th of November 2009. For more details of the session click here, or conference click here.
