主题:13th IWA International Conference on Urban Drainage 时间:September 7-12, 2014 地址:Kuching, Sarawak, Malaysian Borneo Website: http://www.13icud2014.com Submission of Abstracts: 15 November 2013 Notification of Abstracts: 31 December 2013 Submission of Full Papers: 15 February 2014 Acceptance of Full Papers: 15 May 2014 Malaysia is an emerging economy that is striving to achieve developed status by 2020. Like many countries in the tropics, we are prone to flash floods affecting numerous parts of the country. The recently presented Malaysian Second Economic Stimulus Package promises a further allocation of funds for implementation of additional flood mitigation projects. However, having the funding is just the beginning – knowing and understanding which technologies are best to maximise effectiveness requires our practitioners to be well versed in all the latest developments. The state of having to constantly be on the alert and the experience of dealing with this potential problem has shaped Malaysia into a country that is fast gaining knowledge and skills in the management of flash floods. Hosting the 13th ICUD as such in Malaysia, would be an ideal move whereby participants can gain much insight from a location that deals with the problem not only fi­rst hand but also often enough. Proposed Themes: 1. Urban hydrologic and hydraulic process Urban hydrological processes Urban hydrology - case studies Urban rivers ecosystem Hydraulic performance of urban drainage systems Processes in sewer systems Combined and separate sewer overflows Pollutants sources and transports in urban area Receiving environment pollution impacts Adaptation and mitigation towards water related disaster Urban heat island and microclimate change Urban groundwater transport and pollution Micropollutant transports Small scale storm characteristics and dynamics Urban hydrological network design and data optimisation [...]
