"Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling 2018" Conference

How Complex Should Integrated Models Be?


3-6 April 2018 in Tübingen

From 3-6 April 2018 the research training group (RTG 1829) "Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling" will hold for the second time an international conference on "Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling".



Terrestrial water resources are coupled hydrosystems with compartments reaching from the atmosphere to aquifers. Their sustainable management requires predictive models simulating all relevant hydrological and (biogeo)chemical processes. The related processes are uncertain; they are affected by heterogeneity, and undergo change.

The Research Training Group “Integrated Hydrosystem Modelling” of the Universities of Tübingen, Hohenheim, and Stuttgart targets multi-disciplinary, cross-compartimental modelling of flow and reactive transport under uncertainty.



Style of the Conference

16 internationally renowned specialists in various aspects of integrated hydrosystem modelling will give keynote lectures on recent issues in modelling coupled systems.

All other participants will present posters in one of the two extensive poster sessions, facilitating in-depth exchange of ideas and expanding the discussions started in the keynote-lecture debates.

We particularly encourage young researchers to attend the conference and discuss their work with distinguished specialists and peers.
