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.


The purpose of the Source 2014 workshop is to help you become better at using Source or the outputs from Source models.

You can hear the latest about how to use Source from the eWater development team, leading Source modellers and others from the water management community.

Topics covered will include river system modelling for water planning, catchments water quantity and quality modelling, urban water modelling, optimisation modelling and modelling to support environmental water management.

You can present your work and highlight a useful approach to modelling that you have found or seek discussion about a challenge you have encountered.

There is an opportunity to learn about the latest community plugins or to showcase ones you have developed.

This website allows you to register and access general information about the conference. If you are a member of the Source Modelling Community you are welcome to help us plan the workshop.


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

Who should attend?

This workshop is an opportunity for hydrological modellers to become better at using Source and to meet with the eWater development team, leading Source modellers and others from the water management community.

Water managers who are not necessarily modellers, but who rely on data from hydrological models to help them conduct business or solve problems, can learn about how Source is used by other managers, and contribute to discussions about how models might help to solve some of the 'wicked' problems in wate
