3rd Annual Workshop for Source – Australia's national hydrological modelling platform

Save the date! eWater's third annual workshop for Source will be held in Canberra on the 18-19 September, following the 17th International Riversymposium

Workshop Theme

The theme of this year’s workshop — Growing Source access and application — highlights an exciting expansion in the eWater offer: the release in July of a free public version of Source. Delegates will hear about the extensive features included in the Source public version, new international applications of Source, and new directions for the Source community — people, events and on-line resources to make it easier to model and use information from models.


Annual Source workshops help you become better at using Source or information coming from Source models.

Source is used throughout Australia and in Asia for catchment and river system modelling, for integrated water resources management (IWRM) and to manage water quality, environmental water and urban water supply.  It was created using resources and knowhow from the Australian water sector, and has been adopted as Australia's national hydrological modelling platform.

Source 2014 is an opportunity for you to have discussions with the eWater development team and leading Source modellers and water managers who promote model-based management, from Australia, Asia and elsewhere.

Water management domains and topics covered include river system modelling for water planning, urban water supply modelling, catchments water quantity and quality modelling, modelling of groundwater-surface water interactions and environmental water management, and advances in model calibration and the processing of model data.

You can present your work and highlight a useful approach to modelling that you've found, talk about a challenge you've encountered, or discuss how to solve some of the 'wicked' problems in water.

There are opportunities to learn about the latest software plug-ins or to showcase ones you have developed, and to hear about allied technology of use to Source modellers.


A draft program for Source 2014 will be refined with feedback from the Source Modelling Community.

Who should attend?

Source 2014 is for:

  • Water resource modellers from government agencies, management authorities and consultancies – seeking to become better at using the Source modelling platform.
  • People who wish to build capacity to manage water as part of an international learning and development package, or apply information coming from water resource models in their everyday work, or just learn about how Source is used by others in their field.
