After the successful first wflow day last year and succesful wflow event during the DSD South East Asia, we are pleased to inform you that we again organise a wflow day during this years Delft Software Days. During this day we will update you about the latest release (2018.01), ongoing developments, interesting case studies and off course invite you to use wflow to build your own model using the wflow framework during the interactive session in the afternoon. 



The wflow framework is an open source framework, based on Python and PCRaster. WFlow allows for users to build models from (open) data, develop their own hydrological concepts within the framework and combine different modules, such as routing and reservoir modules and snow and glacier melt modules. More information can be found on the wflow documentation website.



If you have any questions, please contact us at


On behalf of the wflow-team,


Kind Regards,
