TUC 2021 update

Last year the TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference had to be postponed last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The current evolution of the COVID-pandemic  and the ongoing vaccination gives us good  is currently giving us hope that this year, the TUC can continue as scheduled on Thursday October 14th and Friday 15th 2021 in Antwerp Belgium, with a pre-conference workshop on Wednesday October 13th. The final decision whether the TUC can go on will be taken on June 25th 2021 , taking into account  the development of the pandemic as well as the government regulations regarding the organization of these kind of events and quarantine free travel from and to Belgium. We will open registrations for the TUC soon.

In order to organize a successful TELEMAC-MASCARET User Conference, please submit your abstract for the conference by Friday July 2th 2021.

We sincerely  hope to be able to meet you all in person in Antwerp in October.

The TELEMAC User conference in Antwerp is postponed to October 2021

In recent weeks, we have seen an increase COVID-19 cases all over Europe. These have made travelling increasingly difficult, due to travel restrictions and quarantine obligations for travelers from various governments. Because of this, the TELEMAC consortium and the local organizing committee of the TUC have taken the decision to postpone the TELEMAC USER CONFERENCE in Antwerp to October 2021. We are currently looking for the exact date and will communicate you this as soon as this is determined

Finally, even though TELEMAC CONFERENCE is postponed, we feel the need to keep in contact with the TELEMAC community. Therefore, we will organize an online TELEMAC gathering, which will take place in the afternoon of Thursday October 15th  2020. We are currently determining the exact format and program of this online gathering and will inform you in due time.

IMDC is proud to organize the TELEMAC USER CONFERENCE

  • 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!
