Hands-on workshop

This workshop 'tools for large-scale flood risk assessment' intends to provide interested people an opportunity to get a more profound first hand insight into some of the tools which have been developed within the System-Risk research projects.

It will be held on Tuesday 17 September 2019 morning before the conference starts and requires separate registration.

The tentative program of the workshop foresees a sequence of three sessions covering:

  1. Python package encompassing methods commonly used to prepare input data for large scale flood inundation studies using the LISFLOOD-FP hydrodynamic model.
  2. Estimation of flood-prone areas for preliminary large-scale flood risk assessment using hydro-geomorphic mapping approaches.
  3. Open source toolkit for model-based decision support under uncertainty which allows to perform exploratory modeling, scenario discovery and robust decision making with existing simulation models.

Participants should bring along their laptops. The intention of the organisers is to minimise pre-requisites regarding installations.

Further details will follow in due time.
