1st Workshop on Improving the Theoretical Underpinnings of Hydrologic Models

24/04/2016 - 27/04/2016


Workshop Organizers:
Bettina Schaefli (EPFL, Switzerland), Stan Schymanski (ETHZ, Switzerland), Beth Jackson (University of Wellington, NZ), Charlie Luce (USFS, USA), and Martyn Clark (NCAR, USA).

Local Organizer:
Alberto Montanari (University of Bologna, Italy)

About the workshop:

There is currently a plethora of hydrological models that are rooted in a multitude of hydrologic laws and theories. We argue that after several international research initiatives to synthesize hydrologic theory, hydrology now urgently needs new approaches to integrate hydrologic theory into model development and enable systematic hypothesis testing.
This event will be the first workshop of a new international grass-roots initiative for more systematic hydrologic model development. It will be the first occasion to discuss in detail the key research questions, prepare the material for review/position papers to document how hydrologic theory can be systematically implemented and tested in hydrological models, and chart a course forward for a theoretically grounded approach to model development, including the possibility to develop community models.

Workshop format:
the workshop will cover 2.5 days of scientific discussion and is by invitation only, limited to around 30 people. Please let us know as soon as possible whether you plan to attend ( bettina.schaefli@epfl.ch )

Workshop fees:
- 330€ (double room) This registration fee includes all local expenses from the evening of 24 to 26 April afternoon including all meals and on-site lodging in double-occupancy rooms with another participant.
- 400 € (single room) This registration fee includes all local expenses from the evening of 24 to 26 April afternoon including all meals and on-site lodging in a single rooms.

Thanks to the financial support of EGU, we will be able to financially support the participation of young scientists. Please let us know if you would like to benefit from this support.
