Summer School on Water Informatics: Science and Systems
May 21-23, 2017. School of Science and Engineering, LUMS, Pakistan

The LUMS Centre for Water Informatics and Technology will host its third School on ‘Water Informatics: Science and Systems’ from 20th to 23rd of May, 2017 in Lahore, Pakistan. This School follows the Fall School that was held in November, 2016 that attracted a large body of students, academics and professionals engaged with water management.

The aim of the workshop is to bring together academics (students, researchers, scientists) and practitioners (policy makers, government representatives) and engage them in addressing water management through a multidisciplinary approach. This is important because addressing water challenges requires water managers to apply an integrated and interdisciplinary approach, involving hydrological, economic, institutional, legal, policymaking and planning aspects.

The workshop is critical for building capacity in the water sector and will help to bridge the gap between academia and practice, and establish a fruitful co-operation between the academic community and industry, development agencies, NGOs, public administration, local communities, and other relevant institutions for building capacity in innovation and technology for water management.
