HEPEX @ MODSIM2023: Invitation to submit

MODSIM2023 will be held in tropical Darwin this year 9-13 July. For those who aren’t aware, MODSIM is the biannual conference of the Modelling and Simulation Society of Australia and New Zealand, and attracts >700 delegates from all corners of the globe and all walks of modelling.

This is the first fully in-person MODSIM since before the pandemic, so it should be an auspicious occasion! Since 2015 HEPEX has been a regular presence at MODSIM, and there two sessions to choose from this year:

Session K5: Hydrometeorological forecasting and decision making: extremes and general advances

Session organisers: James Bennett, Céline Cattoën-Gilbert, Elisabeth Vogel and Wendy Sharples

For this HEPEX session, we invite submissions on predicting extreme events in research and operations. We also welcome submissions on all aspects of hydrometeorological forecasting, including advances in prediction methods, operationalisation, verification, forecast communication and decision making under forecast uncertainty. Contributions are welcome from both scientists and practitioners who are involved in developing and using research and or operational forecasting and/or management systems.

K4. Hydrological forecasting for impact assessment: advances, challenges, methods & interpretation

Session organisers: Katayoon (Katy) Bahramian, Christopher Pickett-Heaps

Advances in hydrological forecasts has improved their usefulness for impact assessment, risk-based decisions, and eventually operational risk management. This session invites contributions on hydrological modelling and forecasting relating to impact assessment, including flood inundation modelling and forecasting, Probabilistic (risk-based) impact assessment, risk-based decision making /decision support.

More details on the sessions are available here.
