Hydroinformatics is a strongly inter-disciplinary field, which links water and environmental problems with various computational modelling methods and fast developing information and communication technologies. Especially the need to standardize and harmonize data protocols and descriptions has prompted many researchers to seek approaches and solutions to overcome data and communication heterogeneity aimed at increased levels of interoperability between different data systems. Hence, a special focus of this conference will be the assessment of the current state of the development of data management (in the broadest sense) approaches that address important aspects related to data storage, data curation, data interoperability, data registration, data provenance, data stewardship, and data annotations.
Finding solutions to these challenging problems requires close collaboration between scientists – established as well as young ones, – informaticists, software developers, practitioners, and stake holders from public and federal organizations. So we encourage you to contribute to the development of future solutions and to widen your own expertise and profile by attending and participating in the conference. Click here

This event is the latest in a well-established series of bi-annual Hydroinformatics conferences started in the early nineties. Furthermore this conference is supported by three world-leading international organisations, IAHR (International Association of Hydro-Environment Engineering and Research), IAHS (International Association of Hydrological Sciences) and IWA (International Water Association).
For the HIC 2014 we will work with three submissions:
The first, deadline September 2013, is a 300 word (max) abstract based upon which we will make a decision as whether or not to accept your planned contribution.
The second, deadline February 2013, contribution (to be published) is a 2-8 (max) pages Extended Abstract. This Extended Abstract will be published in the HIC 2014 Proceedings, for which we will use a Digital Library such as DSpace.
publication will be a special issue on the HIC2014 in the HydroInformatics Journal. This latter one will be for selected full papers only; notice that these full paper
contributions will have to go through the regular peer review process and also that eventually not all submitted papers will have a slot in the special issue. We may narrow down contributions by looking a specific theme. Decisions on the selection will be made by the Editorial Board of the journal.
