Event International Conference ModelCARE 2007 Calibration and Reliability in Groundwater Modelling. Credibility of Modelling

The conference aims at providing an international forum for state-of-the art presentations on relevant methodologies and techniques, and the identification of the needs for future development. The conference will also attempt to illustrate the applicability of various techniques through advanced case studies on calibration and reliability assessment.

Though the conference will cover the entire field of groundwater modelling the overall theme of the 2007 ModelCARE conference is Credibility of Modelling.

The principle topics addressed in the conference include:

Credibility of modelling perceived by water managers and stakeholders in water resources management
Geological modelling and conceptual model uncertainty
Integrated hydrological modelling (coupled descriptions of saturated, unsaturated, surface water)
Modelling of reactive and density affected transport
Value of data at different spatial and temporal scales for model uncertainty reduction
Use of new data types from geophysical and remote sensing techniques
Developments in modelling and uncertainty assessment
Parameter estimation and model calibration
Groundwater modelling in relation to the Water Framework Directive and the Groundwater Directive
