Hydroinformatics approaches for river basin related problems
As a part of Data4Water EU Twining project, a series of summer schools will be organised. The first
Summer school is organised by from UNESCO-IHE Institute for Water Education and University
Politehnica of Bucharest.
The summer school topic is Hydroinformatics approaches for river basin related problems and takes
place from 21st June to the 8th July, 2016. Detailed description of the content, logistics and venue of
the school is given bellow.
Applications for the summer schools are welcomed, no later than 8-th of June, 2016.
We look forward to seeing you in Bucharest soon.
The three-week program is designed to teach participants the necessary background on
hydroinformatics tools for solving problems related to water environment in river basins, and give
them an opportunity to work directly with the tools. At the end of the 3 weeks programmes
participants will be able to solve their own problems using these tools.
The three-weeks summer school schedule is:
The detailed syllabus of the training courses covers three main aspects of hydroinformatics, as
1. Introduction and Modelling 1.1 Introduction to Hydroinformatics 1.2. Modelling paradigms: Physically based modelling, Data driven modelling 1.3. Examples/Case studies 2. Optimization and Decision Support 2.1. Optimization 2.2. Decision support methods: Multicriteria analysis, decision support systems 2.3. Examples/ Case studies 3. Data 3.1. Data sources and standards 3.2. Spatial Data Infrastructures 3.3. Role of cloud computing and parallel computing in Hydroinformatics
Content from all above three aspects will be addressed during the summer school.
The courses are intended for a multidisciplinary audience.
Problem solving session is focused on building a code for a hydrological model and preparing it to
be calibrated and validated with data. In order to determine the uncertainty bounds for some of the
parameters the model will need to be run on the cloud (hundreds of instances), on Amazon or other
freely available cloud. Next step will be fetching the results and building an interface that will
present the results, after they have been analysed.
To apply for a place please send a short CV (including research interests) to email@example.com
The Summer School is targeted at PhD/MD/undergrads students and other early career researchers.
There is no participation fee.
The closing date for applications is: 8th June 2016
The final list of participants will be announced on 15th June 2016
Please direct all enquiries to firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
