ICUD 2024 - Abstract Deadline approaching

by Daniel Thevenot - published on , updated on

Urban Drainage June 2024 in Delft - Abstract Deadline is 23 December 2023

Dear colleagues,

The deadline for abstract submission for the 16th International Conference on Urban Drainage (ICUD) is approaching quickly: you have until the 23th of December 2023 00:00 CET to submit your work to present at the conference in Delft, the Netherlands in June 2024. The ICUD has a long history of being the hallmark conference for the urban drainage community, with topics ranging from urban hydrological processes, data and modelling, sustainability and climate change adaptation to receiving water impacts and flooding.

We are very excited to announce the excellent keynote speakers that will give their address during the conference:

  • Prof. Dr. Jean-Luc Bertrand-Krajewski is an IWA fellow and winner of the Career Achievement of award at the previous edition of the ICUD. He will reflect on his 30 years of research, how the field has changed and how we still have fundamental debates in topic that he wrote his PhD thesis on.
  • Wendy Francken is the president of the European Water Association and Vlario, the knowledge platform for urban water in Flanders. She will present her vision for the future of the management of urban runoff using the implications and challenges of the new European Directive as the main thread of the story.
  • Prof. Dr. David McCarthy, the winner of the Mid-Career Award of the previous edition of the ICUD and current chair of the JCUD, will reflect on the vital role that urban drainage managers have played in managing the COVID-19 pandamic through wastewater based epidimoligy. He will set out the future of WBE and will reflect on the potential of low-cost sensing.
  • Dr. Lena Mutzner is a group leader at the Urban Water Management department at EAWAG. She is on the forefront of research in quantifying emerging pollutants in urban stormwater and their dynamics in grey and blue-green infrastructure. In her keynote she will paint a picture of the rapidly evolving future of stormwater quality research.
  • Prof. Dr. Michael Templeton, Professor of Public Health Engineering at Imperial College London and the Oxfam and Water For People / Royal Academy of Engineering Research Chair in Global Sanitation Technology, has dedicated his research to ensuring sustainable sanitation and clean water in least-developed and lower-middle income countries where non-sewered sanitation is often key. He will give his vision on the research needs and directions to achieve sustainable and equitable (waste)water management around the globe and how this involves developments in the urban drainage field.

As you can see, these speakers will give us a broad vision of the future of all aspects of research and practice in the urban drainage realm. We are very excited to hear their views and discuss the implications in a wider context. If you want more information on the conference, you can contact us, email me directly or check our website.

The submission of abstracts goes through the main website, where you will also find the abstract template to use. Notification of acceptance will be sent before the 15th February 2024.

Hope to see your abstracts coming and to be able to welcome you in Delft, the Netherlands, on the 9th June 2024.

Kind regards,

Job van der Werf, On behalf of the ICUD organising committee
