8th International IWA Symposium on Systems Analysis & Integrated Assessment

20-22 June 2011
Donostia – San Sebastián, Spain

Submission of abstracts: 13 December 2010
Submission of full papers: 15 May 2011

The WATERMATEX symposium focuses on general approaches to solving a wide range of water-related problems within an interdisciplinary framework that relies a lot on different types of models. While methodology-focused, the symposium’s contributions of course extend to applications, but then not restricted to any single discipline; it deals with problems in sewer systems and water treatment, surface and groundwater, technical and natural systems. Integrated Assessment aims at bringing all aspects of a problem together, and it is particularly concerned with such issues as the social and economic impacts of solutions to these problems.

WATERMATEX aims at promoting the application of mathematical methods for modelling and simulation, data management and system identification within such a wide spectrum. It targets people from research, consulting companies, institutions and operators to think along the use of models and computing tools to support the understanding, management and optimization of water systems.
