Steve at CCWI

The 13th Computer Control for Water Industry (CCWI2015) conference was organised by De Montfort University in collaboration with the University of Exeter and the University of Sheffield and took place in Leicester, UK from the 2th – 4th September 2015. The CCWI conference series brought together researchers and water practitioners with an interest in current challenges and solutions for the water industry. The event aimed to bridge theoretical and applied research and shares the best practice across the world water industry.
The topics of interest were broad, ranging from: water engineering solutions for smart, liveable and sustainable cities; modelling, optimization and decision support for clean and wastewater systems; data management including GIS, SCADA and cyber security issues. The main focus of the conference was on water supply and urban drainage systems including technological, economic and social aspects.
