4th IWA/WEF Wastewater Treatment Modelling Seminar 2014
30 March - 2 April 2014
Deadline of Extended Abstract Submission: 13 September 2013
Early Bird Registration: 28 February 2013
WWTmod2014 is the fourth international seminar on wastewater treatment (WWT) modelling after successful events in 2008, 2010 and 2012. WWTmod provides a platform upon which any relevant aspect of WWT modeling may be scrutinized. The main objective of WWTmod is consensus building. The process of consensus building is supported by obtaining insights from a diverse group of leading professionals: researchers, consultants, utilities, regulators, manufacturers, and software developers.
Stricter effluent limits for nutrients and other contaminants, and concerns about plant efficiency, climate change, and emerging contaminants are driving new model development efforts and more and more sophisticated application of modelling.
The widespread use of wastewater treatment models depends on the development of widely accepted standards and procedures. The organizers hope this seminar will contribute to the further development of “Good Modelling Practice” in this field.
Modelling of wastewater treatment plant processes within fence (whole plant/plant-wide):
plant design and operation
activated sludge (traditional and MBR)
biofilm processes (including MBBR)
priority pollutants - microconstituents
uncertainty, calibration, validation and especially the interaction of process units
