The Telemac-Mascaret User Conferences follow a long-outstanding tradition. This autumn 2017, between the 17th and 20th October 2017 the XXIVth TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference will be organized by Graz University of Technology in Graz/Austria .
A preceding workshop will take place in the afternoon of 17th and forenoon of 18th October.
The conference will start after midday on 18th October and end in afternoon 20th October. All users (engineers, researchers and students) are kindly invited to attend or participate as speakers.
The availability of free and open software products based on top-notch science, like Telemac-Mascaret, is indispensable for research as well as practical applications.
Hydraulic engineering, with its broad and outstanding experience as well as recent developments, enables the realization of major infrastructure projects for the society. The service for the public in an economically feasible and ecologically way is significantly strengthened by the Open Source Community. At the TUC2017 Conference, theoretical and practical aspects of water-related numerical simulations are presented and discussed.
The conference themes will be:
- River and urban floods, flood forecasting
- Coastal surges and tsunami waves
- River, estuaries, maritime, coastal sediment processes
- Waterworks, coastal structures design and sustainability
- Waves, tidal renewable and hydro power energy assessment
- Water quality, ecology and environmental impact
- Numerical methods, code coupling and high performance computing
- Data assimilation, optimization, risks and uncertainties
The conference is substantially supported by the TELEMAC-MASCARET consortium: Artelia (France), Bundesanstalt für Wasserbau (BAW, Germany), Centre d’Etudes Techniques Maritimes et Fluviales (CEREMA , France), Daresbury Laboratory (United Kingdom), Electricité de France R&D (EDF, France), and HR Wallingford (United Kingdom), which we gratefully acknowledge.
We wish to all the participants inspiring discussions throughout our TUC2017 Conference in Graz and we are looking forward to animating social contacts during our cultural and evening events.
