Scientific workshops

Workshop #1 - Urban Streams

The goal of the workshop is to bridge the gap between civil engineers or other technically oriented professionals and biologists when dealing with urban drainage impacts on urban streams and design of protective measures. Based on several case studies the workshop participants will be acquainted with urban streams stressors and disturbances. Biologists will provide a basic insight into stream assessment methodologies, which the participants can then try by their own in the field.

Co-organized by: Working Group on Urban Streams

Convenors/Lectures:

  • Ivana Kabelková, Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic
  • Tim Fletcher, Monash University, Australia
  • Andreas Matzinger, KompetenzZentrum Wasser Berlin, Germany
  • Gabriela Stastna, Czech Technical University in Prague, Czech Republic

Where: CTU campus and field

Date: Sunday September 10, 2017, 9:30 – 16:30

Workshop fee: 2700 CZK (100 EUR)

Workshop details available here.

Workshop #2 - Urban Rainfall from Mobile Phone Networks

Commercial microwave links (CMLs), pairs of telecommunication antennas used as a backbone of modern mobile phone networks, represent new source of rainfall information which is available at virtually no cost in most cities around the world. The workshop provides introduction to CML rainfall retrieval following the process chain from acquiring the raw CML data from cellular operators to final high resolution rainfall product ready for both real-time applications and hindcasting in urban stormwater management. Lectures are combined with practical exercises on processing of CML data and integrating with standard rain gauge measurements.

Workshop #3 - Water Sensitive Urban Design: Where are we at?

This workshop will generate a journal article that captures the current state of play regarding WSUD in countries around the world. Drawing on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and the Water Sensitive Cities Index benchmarking tool, participants will discuss where their representative country is at positioned with regard to mainstreaming WSUD practices. Facilitation questions will include such as: is there a supportive policy and planning environment? Are there sufficiently skilled individuals who can successfully implement WUSD systems? Is implementation strategic or opportunistic? Insight from these discussions will lead to the identification of opportunities and strategies to expedite the transition to alternative urban drainage practices around the world.

Workshop #4 - Modelling of Stormwater for Green Cities

Introduction to different approaches to the modelling of various types of green infrastructure in MIKE URBAN and their effect on different types of storm events. In addition, you are also introduced to storm water quality and modelling thereof as well as storm water quality treatment options. The course encompasses all types of the green infrastructure practices on the local level thus including bio-retention cells, rain gardens, green roofs, infiltration trenches, permeable pavements, rain barrels and vegetative swales.
In recent years we have experienced increased focus on making cities water sustainable. Today many cities strive towards integrating the entire urban water cycle into the urban planning. In this way, environmental degradation is minimised and the aesthetic and recreational appeal of the cities improved. Concurrently, cities also need to adapt to a changing climate.
Cities and water utilities need to be able to quantify and document the effects of introducing green infrastructure, for instance in relation to climate change adaptation options, the improvement of water quality in recipients and rainwater harvesting in cities with water shortage.

Organized by: DHI Group

Convenors/Lectures:

  • Morten Just Kjølby
  • Nina Sto Domingo
  • Francisco Torres

Where: Prague Congress Centre

Date: Sunday September 10, 2017, 9:00 – 17:00

Workshop fee: 1890 CZK (70 EUR)

Workshop #5 - Upgrade your own Traditional Model to Online and Real Time

Bring your own model and learn about our successful approach for creating powerful forecasting and early warning systems and how you can set up your own system to meet your specific needs. It supports the management, analysis, presentation and publication of historical and online data and information to facilitate decision making. This course gives you an opportunity to work hands-on your own network on the MIKE PERATIONS environment. Will learn to create automated jobs that work automatically and how to configure a user interface for operators. The course will also give you a broad opportunity to share experiences and discuss the topics of the course related to their own needs.

Workshop #6 - Urban Flood Modelling

The workshop provides the skills and knowledge for estimating the risk and economic impacts from urban flooding. You will learn about concepts and tools to analyse damage costs from flood maps, and be introduced to the DHI solution which can help you in flood damage calculation and risk mapping. During the workshop you will obtain an understanding of the processes involved in assessing and mapping the flood risk for a given area.
The stand-alone DHI solution works seamlessly with other MIKE software and can also handle flood maps in other generic raster formats. The damage calculation is user customisable and covers a wide range of application areas such as urban flood analysis, climate change impact assessment and flood management.
The workshop will take you through the processes of economic value mapping, various flood mapping options, damage mapping and finally the risk mapping. The risk map is used for identification of areas in risk and for support in decision making of various mitigation strategies and options. Estimating costs related to urban flooding is important in performing economic analyses, which helps determine when adaptation options should be implemented prior and during urban flood management.

Advanced Course

Workshop #7 - Modelling Of Integrated Urban Drainage-Wastewater Systems (MIUWS)

The course is targeted at practitioners, PhD students, and researchers modelling the elements of integrated Urban Drainage-Wastewater systems - drainage network, wastewater treatment plants, receiving water bodies. The course consists of an overview of state-ofthe-art tools for integrated modelling of urban drainage and wastewater systems, simulation exercises based on the WEST® software, and examples of application of integrated approaches for improving the environmental status of natural water bodies, e.g. eutrophication and oxygen depletion.
