About

Hydroinformatics focuses on the application of information and communications technologies, to address problems in the water industry, water resources management, and other fields connected to the aquatic environment. New trends, like the digital transformation of urban water systems, smart water networks and smart cities demand multi-disciplinarity and interoperability, to ensure a sustainable management of water resources. As the Hydroinformatics scientific community continuously grows, its interests encompass a wide range of topics, from the numerical modelling to the development of new sensors and tools, the interpretation of increasing amounts of data, the analysis and management of complex water systems, the integration of models, data and controls for practical applications.

The work of the IAHR/IWA Joint Committee on Hydroinformatics and of several IWA Specialist Groups has highlighted the importance of knowledge integration among scientists, practitioners and technology experts, in order to tackle the complex challenges of water management in a changing world.

Presently, in addition to the ever-present threat of climate change, the COVID-19 pandemic also changed our daily lifestyle. The repercussions of these recent events cannot be ignored. For example, in water supply, the impact of shifting a portion of the water demand from the industrial sector (corporate office buildings) to the residential districts from which people now remotely work, has the potential to change the demand patterns, thus the water distribution of urban areas.
