Water Distribution Systems Analysis (WDSA)

The WDSA conference focuses on the latest challenges, innovations, and methodologies regarding water distribution systems. It was firstly organized as a conference track at the Annual Conference of the Water Resources Planning and Management Division of ASCE. Since 2006, it has been held every other year as part of the EWRI World Water Congress or a stand-alone conference at the following locations:

  • 2006 Cincinnati, USA
  • 2008 Krueger National Park, South Africa
  • 2010 Tucson, Arizona, USA
  • 2012 Adelaide, Australia
  • 2014 Bari, Italy
  • 2016 Cartagena, Colombia

The stand-alone WDSA conference is now jointly organized with CCWI. The first joint conference was held in Kingston, Canada in 2018.

Computing and Control in the Water Industry & Water Distribution Systems Analysis (CCWI / WDSA)

This joint conference brings together industry professionals and researchers from around the world to solve problems in the field of urban water systems, modelling, and control. The joint conference will tackle themes in water systems modelling and control covered by the Computing and Control in the Water Industry (CCWI) series of conferences as well as themes in water distribution analysis and modelling covered by the Water Distribution Systems Analysis (WDSA) series of conferences.

  • 2018 1st International Joint Conference in Water Distribution Systems Analysis & Computing and Control in the Water Industry in Kingston, Ontario, Canada
