Organizers call for papers for the March event
MWH Soft announced the opening of registration and a call for papers for the fourth annual Asia Pacific Water and Sewer Systems Modeling Conference. The event will be held March 30 and 31, 2011, at the Hotel Grand Chancellor Surfers Paradise on Australia’s Gold Coast.
The event is sponsored by major water utilities and associations in the region. It will feature keynote presentations from leaders in hydraulic and water quality modeling throughout Asia, Europe, North America, Australia and New Zealand. The conference also incorporates an annual gathering of MWH Soft software users and their managers who want to sharpen their skills, expand their knowledge and share best practices with their peers. The ultimate goals are to design, operate and manage better systems, protect the environment and safeguard public health.
The forum will allow water, wastewater and storm water professionals to explore new ways of using engineering GIS technology, advanced network modeling and simulation and asset management applications. Participants will learn how they can leverage these tools to do their jobs better, easier, more quickly and more efficiently; maximize their return on software investments; and make their organizations more globally competitive. They will also earn Chartered Professionals Continued Professional Development (CPD) hours.
To supplement the keynote presenters and speakers already confirmed, the organizing committee is seeking relevant and unique presentations. The agenda will also feature hands-on software demonstrations, discussions of business implementation and management issues, industry solutions presentations, key technology updates and social and networking events. Keynote speaker Paul F. Boulos, Ph.D., president and chief operating officer of MWH Soft, will address the conference on the latest technologies in water, storm water and wastewater network modeling, capital planning and asset management.
To have your abstract considered for oral presentation, please submit a maximum-250-word abstract with title and author information. Abstracts should be submitted via the following form no later than Dec. 10: http://mailer.mwhsoft.com/3KM-AFA3-16UTTM-42MD0-1/c.aspx.
