International Conference on Hydroinformatics (HIC 2012)
Hydroinformatics is a strongly inter-disciplinary field, which links water and environmental problems with various computational modelling methods and fast developing information and communication technologies. The latest developments in Hydroinformatics link science and engineering practice together with stakeholders’ views as well as social considerations. A special focus of this conference will be the assessment of the impact of climate and environmental changes on our aquatic environment as well as the development of suitable adaptation and mitigation measures.
Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, – software developers, practitioners, and stake holders from public and federal organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending and participating in the conference.
This event is the latest in a well-established series of bi-annual Hydroinformatics conferences started in the early nineties. Furthermore this conference is supported by three world-leading international organisations, IAHR (International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research), IAHS (International Association of Hydrological Sciences) and IWA (International Water Association).
On behalf of the organizing committee, we invite you to come to the very attractive and lively town of Hamburg.
