“Great event and networking time”
– Jan Vreeburg
The CCWI conference goes international! After a successful series of biannual conferences organised in the UK and one in Italy, the Computing and Control for the Water Industry Conference will be organised in the Netherlands in November 2016.
The focus of the conference will be on water systems modelling and control with special attention to translating and applying the scientific work in practice. Industry and science will be brought together in discussions in the early stages of forming ideas and the first field applications in pilots and trials. There will also be a platform for mature applications and their success in industry, feedback on earlier trials and lessons learned from previous applications.
The CCWI conference aims to facilitate high level discussions and practical demonstrations of computing and control applications in a wide range of the water industry. Topics like treatment of waste water and drinking water, hydraulics in drinking water networks and sewers, asset management, water quality in general, storm water are welcomed. But also discussions on the uncertainties offered by climate change, various governance models, etc. and their impact on the technical solutions can be programmed. Transition from linear to more circular and sustainable oriented solutions is a relatively new field with challenging problems for new computing and control strategies.
The edition in the Netherlands will also focus on the practical application of various models that have been developed over the last decades. What kind of benefit did it bring to the operation of the systems. Especially practitioners in the water industry are invited to share their experiences with the scientists and have discussions on new directions to maximise the collaboration between science and practice.
