Delft Software Days 2016 Programme

The Delft Software Days (DSD-INT 2016) is the software conference regarding water, subsurface and infrastructure applications. The conference provides the opportunity to share the latest software developments and to discuss the latest insights in modelling, validating, data handling, visualization and knowledge acquisition. Deltares organizes an extensive array of symposia, courses and workshops to share expertise, software skills and experiences.

The DSD-INT 2016 will take place this autumn from Monday, 24 October to Friday, 4 November. Following the 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 event, it offers an extensive twelve-day programme at Deltares, Boussinesqweg 1, Delft, The Netherlands.

As usual we will welcome over 600 participants from more than 200 organizations bringing together around 50 nationalities. This annual event provides a venue for both users and developers of Delft software products, tools and data & knowledge management systems. It gives an excellent opportunity to present new scientific insights in modelling, recent advances in data & knowledge management and latest open software developments, related to water, subsurface and infrastructure.

With the Delft Software Days we contribute to the software community. The community using Delft open source software is currently 10,000+ members worldwide and is growing rapidly. The DSD-INT 2016 events are held in support of the open source community and are important in fostering relationships with universities, research institutes, governmental organizations and companies.

Delft-FEWS - Advanced Configuration Course

Delft-FEWS is an open data handling platform, initially developed as a hydrological forecasting and warning system. Essentially, it is a sophisticated collection of modules designed for building a Forecasting, Evaluation and Early Warning System. Because of its unique characteristics concerning data importing, processing and model connections, Delft-FEWS has also been applied in a wide range of different operational situations. Examples are water quality forecasting, reservoir management, operational sewer management optimization, and water information systems.

This Advanced Configuration course is going in-depth into a number of topics in a new demo…

SWAN - Wave Modelling

For designing engineering structures such as breakwaters, storm surge barriers or levees, coastal engineers often need high-quality, detailed wave information as represented by the significant wave height, wave period and mean direction or the two-dimensional wave spectrum.

For many situations, the phase-average wave model SWAN provides the required wave information. SWAN can be used as stand-alone application, but it is also included in the Delft3D 4 Suite as the Delft3D-WAVE module.

Both ways are offered in this course.

Probabilistic Forecasting Course

Many hydrologic forecasting agencies are moving towards probabilistic forecasting for the purpose of estimating predictive hydrologic uncertainties. These estimates are often based on ensemble techniques and/or statistical post-processing. This course gives an introduction to these techniques as well as discusses related topics such as verification of probabilistic forecasts and effectively using probability forecasts in operational practice.

Probabilistic forecasting

Forecasting may reduce but cannot eliminate inherent uncertainties about the future. One approach to managing this is to estimate remaining uncertainties in a probabilistic fashion and thus arrive at a probabilistic forecast.…
