As we do every year, we will be attending a number of conferences this year, where we will have a booth, and in some cases be presenting papers. If you are attending one of these conferences, we'd love to see you. Stop by our booth, where you can meet GoldSim technical staff to ask questions, suggest new features, or just chat. The preliminary list of conferences we plan on attending are listed below:
“Sustainable Water Management Conference”
March 15-18, 2015
This conference will focus on presenting solutions for balancing the benefits of conservation with the costs, managing water resources, sustainable utilities and infrastructure, urban planning and design, energy efficiency, water conservation, stormwater and reuse.
“Achieving Results through Technology and Innovation on a Global Scale”
March 15-19, 2015
The annual Waste Management Conference, presented by WM Symposia (WMS), attracts thousands of registrants from around the world and is widely regarded as the premier international conference for the management of radioactive material and related topics. The technical program is comprehensive with over 600 papers and 138 technical sessions and panels which are complemented by an extensive exhibition. GoldSim is widely used in the radioactive waste management community and a number of papers will be presented describing GoldSim applications.
“Water for Urban Areas: Managing Risks and Building Resiliency”
Los Angeles, CA
March 30-April 1, 2015
Topics will cover unique challenges associated with fluctuations in economy and population growth, changing climate, water supply and quality conditions, aging infrastructures, and increasing costs and regulatory requirements. Presentations will focus on tools and approaches that identify and explicitly address uncertainties and risks, which is a good fit for a tool like GoldSim. The flexibility of our software will also resonate with those seeking to make connections to other disciplines outside of water resources such as food security, land use, energy and culture. GoldSim will be highlighted in 2 or 3 papers at this conference.
April 12-15, 2015
The greatest challenges in managing mine waters arise at mines in extreme environments. Mines in extremely arid environments may require expensive systems to desalinate sea water and transport the water great distances to the mine. Mines in extremely wet settings may need expensive systems to treat excess process and contact water before discharging to sensitive receivers. Mines in extremely cold climates may face frozen conditions and the challenge of operating facilities where most of the water is ice for a good part of the year. Complex hydrogeological and geochemical issues are also common to the extremely wet, dry and cold climate settings. This conference is focused on solutions to mine water issues in very challenging environments. GoldSim is widely used to address mine water management issues and a number of papers will be presented describing GoldSim applications.
November 16-19, 2015
The national AWRA conference brings together professionals from research and practice in all areas of water resources management. Topics usually cover state-of-the-art practical solutions, insight into what is on the horizon and information on the latest applications, innovations and development in water resources management.
