Other important stuff

This year we are doing things a little differently! We all know that combined Storm & Sewer systems might work overseas but, in Australia we like to keep these things separated. We decided the same goes for our User Event! Instead of combining the Sewer & Storm day like we've done in previous years we will now be separating Day 2 into a dedicated Storm & Flood and Sewer event to ensure you are getting a full day on each topic. Please select your main interest for Day 2 when completing the registration form. 

If you are interested in presenting at this event, please submit an electronic abstract (50-100 words) and presentation title by Friday, 13th September by 12 pm AEST to Vanessa Heathcote via email (vanessa.heathcote@innovyze.com) No written paper is required, however Innovyze would like to include a PDF copy of the presentation on our website after the event. Spots for presenting are limited so make sure to reach out as soon as possible!

Registration is now closed - ALLOCATION EXHAUSTED (Please register your interest for next year's event with vanessa.heathcote@innovyze.com)

“Since dipping my toes in InfoWorks CS/ICM in 2006, I have enjoyed the efficiency the software tools provide to tackle simple or complex flooding problems. This year I'm looking forward to sharing the challenges & learnings on modelling a large scale drainage model of Melbourne Metropolitan area”. - Celine Marchenay (Water Technology, Melbourne)
