Welcome

On behalf of the National Committee on Water Engineering of Engineers Australia, I am delighted to extend a warm invitation for you to attend the 13th Hydraulics in Water Engineering Conference.

The Conference will be held from the 14th to the 16th November 2017 at DockSide, Darling Harbour, Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. Specific themes for the conference include: Coastal and Marine Hydraulics; Hydraulic Structures; Infrastructure as well as Numerical and Hydraulic Methods.

The Local Organising Committee is currently finalizing an exciting programme of keynote speakers as well as the Henderson Orator. The Henderson Oration recognises the contribution of the science of hydraulics to the practice of hydrology and water resources engineering. In addition to the planned two days of podium papers a full day workshop is planned to discuss and train for the updated hydraulic methods in both the updated release of Australian Rainfall and Runoff with associated knowledge of the key advances from leading industry figures.

DockSide is a picturesque conference facility with state of the art facilities that is conveniently located on the Sydney CBD side of Darling Harbour. Being located within the Darling Harbour precinct ensures a ready supply of excellent restaurants and bars the will provide limitless opportunities for the all-important break out and networking sessions. Further the proximity to the Sydney CBD ensures a wide variety of accommodation options to suite all tastes and budgets.

Once again, on behalf of the National Committee on Water Engineering I encourage you to submit a paper and attend the 13th Hydraulics in Water Engineering Conference.
