SWARM2020: International Conference on Sustainable Water Resources Management

SWARM 2020

The conference has been organized by the Department of Civil Engineering, Assam Engineering College in association with the Department of Civil Engineering, Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati.

Objectives of the Conference

  • To identify the specific issues that need to be tackled for sustainable management of water. The challenges related to modeling and management of various aspects of water will be identified, and a goal will be set to resolve the issue within a specific time frame.
  • To discuss the impact, resiliency, and risks arising from the hazard created by the extreme precipitation, flood including urban flooding, river and catchments erosion, the water quality of both surface water and groundwater, water logging and drought, dams, climate change, etc.
  • To provide a platform for the academic, practicing, and industrial community to share the latest findings in their respective fields as well as to share the information about the difficulties faced by them in solving various water-related problems. The interaction between the academic and the practicing engineers will help in reducing the knowledge gap between the theoretical advances and practical applications, also help in understanding the problem faced by the industry. This conference will also provide a platform to exchange knowledge between the national and international researchers, which will certainly boost the academic and professional collaboration between the researchers.
  • To foster participation and dialogue between various stakeholders, including governments, scientific and academic communities, in order to promote sustainable policies for water management, create awareness of water-related problems, motivate commitment at the highest level for their solution and thus promote better management of water resources at local, regional, national and international levels.
