Land, Water and Environmental Management: Integrated Systems for Sustainability                                                                                       Land & Water

The congress theme of "Land, Water and Environmental Management: Integrated Systems for Sustainability" was selected to reinforce the importance of modelling integrated systems within a context of sustainability focussing, in particular, on the recurrent MODSIM themes of land and water. There was also a focus on the application of modelling and simulation techniques to a broad range of real-world problems.
