This autumn in Delft might be your best chance to get the latest insights in the open software developments, the best modelling practices and the most powerful pre- and post-processing tools in the field of geohydrology, surface-water hydrology, hydrodynamics, morphology, water quality & ecology, and data sciences, for rivers, lakes, and ocean, coastal, estuarine, urban and industrial environments.

You are most welcome to join us in week 45 and 46 of this year and get the most out of the Delft Software Days – Edition 2018 (DSD-INT 2018). On Monday, 5 November, a 12-day program filled with interactive sessions, user days, workshops, symposia and courses will start. More than 25 events will focus on different needs and different fields of application.
