IMDC is proud to organise the 2020 TELEMAC User conference in Antwerp

The conference starts on Wednesday October 14th 2020 with a one-day technical workshop, followed by a two-day conference from Thursday October 15th to Friday October 16th. A conference diner on Thursday evening will be organised for delegates and guests.

  • The TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference has proved crucial in bringing together an international group of engineers, scientists and hydrodynamicists to share best practise and ideas for the development of this unique hydro-informatics software system. What started as a small group of mostly developers at a workshop in Paris, in 1994, has grown into a successful annual event which attracts delegates from several continents.

  • The software has developed strongly, particularly since the adoption of the GNU Opensource platform in 2010 and new tasks in the marine and fluvial domains to which the TELEMAC-MASCARET system can be applied, are multitudinous. Advances in the capability of the system now encompass biogeochemical processes as well as physical, extending the system to ecosystem modellers from a wide range of scientific disciplines, as well as more traditional hydrodynamic modellers.

The conference is substantially supported by the TELEMAC-MASCARET consortium: Artelia (France), Bundesanstalt für Wasserbau (BAW, Germany), Centre d’études et d’expertise sur les risques, l’environnement, la mobilité et l’aménagement (CEREMA, France), Centre Europeen de Recherche et de Formation Avancée en Calcul Scientifique (CERFACS, France), Daresbury Laboratory (United Kingdom), Electricité de France R&D (EDF, France), and HR Wallingford (United Kingdom), which we gratefully acknowledge.

We are looking forward to seeing you all in Antwerp for the 2020 TELEMAC User Conference!
