3-6 December 2018 | Melbourne, Australia

Welcome to the 38th Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium (HWRS 2018)

Engineers Australia’s National Committee on Water Engineering takes great pleasure in inviting you to the Hydrology and Water Resources Symposium 2018 (HWRS 2018) at the Pullman Melbourne on the Park, in Melbourne, from 3 to 6 December 2018.

The conference’s theme is “Water and Communities”. During the conference, internationally respected and local speakers will reflect on advances to date and highlight the opportunities and challenges to come in the areas of water engineering, hydrology, hydrogeology, research into and management of water resources. Areas of focus for the conference will include:
• Flood risk modelling and management
• Integrated water management
• Healthy waterways
• Informing water policy and operational decisions
• Understanding water use
• Doing more with less water
• Indigenous water values
• Community participation and ownership of water issues

The conference will provide an outstanding opportunity to network with others in the water industry. We have also assembled a trade exhibition of the latest and most relevant products and service providers for the water industry. A highlight will be the Gala Dinner and Hydrologic Games, to decide the coveted Cumec Trophy.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in beautiful Melbourne and Australia in 2018.
