Abstract submission will be open until the end of April 2020 (see key dates). We welcome contributions reporting on new research, software development, case studies, examples of co-production of research between academics and public/private organisations.

Upon submission, authors will be asked to specify their preference for oral or poster presentation. We will try to accommodate preferences as much as possible, compatibly with the symposium schedule, and will notify the authors of the acceptance of their abstract for either an oral or poster presentation in June (see key dates). We plan to have fewer oral presentations and leave more time for group discussion and a longer poster session in the middle of each day. So, we encourage authors to consider poster presentation as a way to maximise interactions and networking opportunities.

Upon submission authors will also be asked to specify up to 5 keywords. At least one of them must be chosen from the symposium themes:
forecasting & real-time operation – hydropower optimisation – demand modelling & management – smart urban water management – reservoirs & diversion systems – decision-making under uncertainty – downstream impacts of dams – modelling and visualisation tools – academia-industry collaborations
This will help us organise thematically homogenous oral and poster blocks.

After the symposium, extended abstracts will be published in EPiC Series in Engineering (easychair.org/publications/EPiC/Engineering) and remain freely accessible under a CC Attribution 4.0 license.
