The University of Palermo and the University of Enna “Kore” are pleased to invite the hydroinformatics international community to the 13th International Conference on Hydroinformatics (HIC 2018).
Hydroinformatics is a branch of informatics which concentrates on the application of information and communications technologies (ICTs) in addressing the increasingly serious problems of the equitable and efficient use of water for many different purposes. Hydroinformatics scientific community is continuously growing and its interests are widening from numerical modelling to the development of new sensors and tools, the interpretation of increasing amounts of data, the analysis and management of complex systems, the integration of models, data and controls for practical applications.
Today, multi-disciplinarity is the key for the sustainable management of water resources. The work of the IAHR/IWA Joint Committee on Hydroinformatics and of several International Water Association Specialist Groups has demonstrated the importance of knowledge integration among scientists, practitioners and technology experts in order to tackle the complex challenges of water management in a changing world.
HIC 2018 seeks to create a forum for exchanging ideas, for promoting ground-breaking technologies, for proposing new extensive collaborations, for finding new solutions for water management and environment preservation.
